Michael Bastian On Prom Night

From GQ:

Lessons Learned: Designer Advice for the Big Night

“I remember my prom to kinda be a big non-event for me. But I do remember exactly what I wore—navy blazer, a new blue and white striped shirt with a gold tie bar that went through two little holes sewn into the contrast white collar (it was GANT, ironically enough), summer gray flannels, and a cotton knit tie. I looked like I was going to a college interview (which I was actually doing the next week) and my date, a sweet friend who let me copy off her homework, looked like a blonde Laura Ingalls Wilder in a blue floral prairie dress. Clearly, no one got laid that night.”
