STUTTAFORDS STREET STYLE | GUESS
This Guess denim jacket from www.stuttafords.co.za is the one for me. I have been looking for one, a really good one for ages. I’m thinking of how to customize it even more. Any suggestions? I’m open to all of them.

Georges Marciano for Guess.

    It seem like the thrift stores dead smack in the middle of the hood have the best clothes. And besides current brands, I also find a lot of vintage clothes also. A few years ago, as I was shopping in the kids section of the thrift store, I came across a boy’s printed button-up vintage Guess shirt. It struck me, sort of like eye candy. I said to myself “I gotta get this shirt!”

At that particular time, my godson was too small to wear the shirt, and I really didn’t have any intentions on him wearing it. I just wanted to put it in his wardrobe as my little prized possession.

Yesterday, as I was looking through his wardrobe, trying to find him something to wear for the neighborhood event at the community garden, I said to myself, “You know what? He’s going to wear this shirt today.”

Later that day, we walked into the garden, and everyone was drawn to his shirt. The president of the community actually approached him and said “Wow, I love your shirt little man! Look at those little houses! Perfect shirt for the Perfect Event!” And it’s crazy because I didn’t plan this out. It just happened

I LOVE Guess…..

Always have, always will. I fell in love with the brand the first time I laid my eyes on their logo.

Guess Georges Marciano, designer

Marciano and his three brothers started Guess Inc. in Los Angeles in 1981 after arriving from France, where they had grown up in poverty. Georges dropped out of school at 15 and quickly gravitated toward the garment industry. His design of skintight jeans, zippered at the cuffs and softened by repeated washings with pumice stone, launched the brand. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art named him California’s Designer of the Year in 1987. Even after he left the company in 1993, labels and advertisements touted “Guess? by Georges Marciano.”

After selling his stake in Guess for $220 million, Marciano turned his attention to real estate. The crown jewel of his properties was the Bank of America building in Beverly Hills, nicknamed the Power Tower for its influential and wealthy tenants.

   Aside from leaving the industry, Marciano never lost his designer’s eye. He assembled a collection of striking objects that would eventually include antique firearms, millions in gold coins, the Ferraris, a $16-million, 84-carat diamond he named for his daughter, Chloe, and enough art to open a small museum.

"He had some of the most beautiful Rockwells I’d ever seen in my life. He loved patriotic art," said Kevin Lipton, a Beverly Hills coin dealer who counted Marciano among his customers. "There are a lot of rich people in this town who have no taste, but this guy had amazing taste."

 
As far as his personal life, Marciano shared a 20,000-square-foot mansion on Crescent Drive with his wife, Megan, whom he married in 1986, and their four children. The family enjoyed what Megan Marciano would later describe in divorce papers as a “standard of living that had no limits.”

"We have dinners cooked by a private chef … and watch first-run movies shown by a professional projectionist in the full screening room of the basement of our home," she wrote in a filing in the divorce case. "Money has never been an object."
