Ah, the cluelessness of the Los Angeles Times. I’m not the first (LAobserved.com was) to notice this new ad campaign, featuring the graphic to the left, but I am the first to ask: In all your meetings at all the studios, have you ever encountered anyone who dressed like this? Me neither. No one wears those striped shirts circa 1980s at the studios, much less this ugly one that’s not even Zegna or Boss. At the very least, the guy should be wearing a Lauren polo shirt, preferably cashmere. No tie. The slacks should be khakis or the bottom half of a suit bought at Barney’s, not these ill-fitting Men’s Wearhouse sale item. And the only sandals I’ve ever seen on any studio mogul were Nubuck Nature Treks worn with white athletic socks on Ron Meyer.
