Elliot Aronow

Elliot Aronow is creative director of RCRD LBL, the world’s first free and legal curated download site, host of a talk and variety show called “Our Show with Elliot Aronow,” and columnist for Playboy’s “Self Styled with Elliot Aronow.”  In the many roles he plays, he bridges the little gap between the worlds of music and fashion in a style all his own: smooth, rebellious, and classic.  He is a man of short stature, a fact that he casually and cheekily refers to from time to time, and all of us who aren’t quite model-long and lurchy (I’m 5’11″) could learn a thing or two from him.  To me, he is a character in the music video that is New York nightlife, a relentless conversationalist, and a gentleman of style.

I really like the subtle pattern on his blue suit.

I thought this was really smart: he installed a rack made out of regular metal pipes to hold prospective outfits for the next day.

    I can’t keep up with so many great posts! Coming so frequently :-) Is Playboy still a thing?! I don’t think anyone (I know) reads it in the UK… Always assumed it was just glossy straight pornography.

    Also 5’11” is hardly short! :-)

    Love your blog! We love reading original and unique writers like yourself that have their own particular taste!

    After reading your blog we were wondering if perhaps our two entities could partner in some way?

    We sell made to measure suits and would love to see what you think of them! Could we schedule a phone call for later this week? Let us know! Looking forward to hearing back form you!
