Like his other 269,657 followers on You Tube, I worship at the alter of Casey Neistat. You know, the filmmaker who sometimes makes guerrilla marketing films for giant corporations like Nike and 20th Century Fox, but somehow never ever comes off as a corporate sell-out because he plays by his own rules and is so uber-creative that his films would be probably be a pleasure to watch even if they were sponsored by, say, Monsanto? Yeah, that guy. Well, his latest output is a short for J.Crew, specifically, for their Ludlow Suit. In my (humble, of course) opinion, most men’s fashion promotions fall into two categories: embarrassing or boring. This is neither. In fact, it’s style — and styling — at it’s best. Casey Neistat: You are a creative genius. Now, everyone, go buy a Ludlow suit.
