Who is How To Dress Well?

The Name How To Dress Well

How To Dress Well: “How To Dress Well as a name came in 2004. Because I was living with my friend Alex. A friend of ours would make a little short film and I had made a piece of music to go with it, which was like weird, quite inspired by the sound design of Eraserhead, the David Lynch movie. It was really trippy. Super-spaced out. Long-form piece. 30 minutes or something.

 

“I didn’t sit down one day and say, ‘What are some band names that I’d like to try?’ And had the white board and was like, ‘How To Dress Well? No. Maybe. Wolf something? No. Ok. How To Dress Well it is.’ It was just like a contingent thing.”

 

“I was moving it from tape to iTunes to send to the friend. I was like, ‘Yo, what should I call this? What should I call my artist name?’ We just bought these books at a used bookstore. One was called How To Photograph Woman Beautifully and the other was called How To Dress Well. He was like, ‘Call it how to photograph woman beautifully.’ I was like, ‘Nah, that’s too weird. What’s the other one called?’ So I just put it in my iTunes to know where all my songs are. Everything I put into iTunes then on went under How To Dress Well. Anything I dropped from a 4-track to a 8-track to the computer was called ‘How To Dress Well.’ And it just stuck.
