Today, we had the pleasure of hitting up FYI @ MADE, the new retail spot at Milk Studios, with none other than John Early. Below, find out what particular pieces caught the comedian's eye—and how he felt about each.



Shopping with John Early at FYI @ MADE [NYFW]

“My goal recently has been to dress more like Ann-Margret—Bye Bye Birdie—like sweet, ‘50s Ann-Margret,” comedian John Early told me this afternoon. It was a beautiful moment (in my opinion), an intimate moment—and made all the more intimate by the fact that an ear-splitting “smack that pussy ho,” one of Future’s many incisive refrains, was nearly causing me to go deaf.

Early and I, you see, were hitting up FYI @ MADE, the fleeting—but not to be missed—retail bonanza currently going on at Milk Studios, for a quick shopping excursion. And as you might imagine, amidst the bonnets and the single sleeves, the decorative rock handbags and Nelly Furtado cassette tapes, Early did not have a hard time fulfilling his sartorial goal. Below, find out what particular pieces caught his eye—and how he felt about each.
