Former Neiman Marcus Men's Fashion Director turned Park & Bond Fashion Consultant Nickelson Wooster has accepted an executive position with JCPenney, who have been trying to rebrand for the past few months. Trying to make themselves more relevant, the mall department store often brings up connotations of diffusion brands for diffusion brands, like Levi's SilverTab Jeans and Ralph Lauren's Chaps and American Living collections.
Wooster has made a name for himself thanks in part to his noticeable look and impeccable style, which made him something of a fixture in the menswear community, and somewhat of an Internet celebrity among young men with a tumblr who just learned how to tie a bowtie. This move to JCPenney will hopefully give the brand a sartorial shot in the arm. [NY Post]
