Barney's is now advertising their "Made to Measure" service at several locations, featuring brands like Zegna, Incotex, Isaia, Brioni, and others (depending on your city). I noticed that their logo features the silhouette of Gregory Peck from The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit (1956). Whether this is really egregious content infringment or not, I can't say, given that the original movie is over 50 years old. Maybe it's public domain by now..
Suffice it to say, the image of Gregory Peck (height 6'3" – 6'4", depending on which source you trust) has become ubiquitous and universal enough to communicate hum-drum corporate conformity. Maybe that's the irony that Barney's was trying to point out, that even he - the Corporate Everyman - would have had to have suits "Made to Measure"... but I kind of doubt it.
For those really ready to get out of the corporate mold, the AAA (in the form of the AAAFFF) is offering creatives the opportunity to get out of the suit for good. Apply for a grant to free your mind from the bonds of advertising, and may your tall-sized legs follow.
