Shoppin’ with Tom

Back in October, I met up with Tom Julian ’84 over at Nordstrom’s at Ross Park Mall where he was signing his new book, the Nordstrom Guide to Men's Style, a comprehensive fashion guide for men. I had written a cover feature about Tom for the spring 2008 issue of Foundations magazine, and I was happy to finally meet him face to face.

Being somewhat clueless when it comes to fashion, I was intimidated – to say the least – to meet such a legend of the fashion industry. But Tom was just as friendly and personable as can be, and if he had any critique on my choice of clothing, he very kindly kept it to himself.

When it comes to fashion, Tom’s your man. In addition to being the president and founder of Tom Julian Group, he has also chronicled red carpet trends for the Style Section of for, the official website of the Academy Awards.

Now Tom is back for more with his latest release, the Nordstrom Guide to Men’s Everyday Dressing. Stop by Nordstrom at Ross Park Mall on Thursday, March 18, between 6-8 p.m. to meet Tom, get a signed copy of his book, and get some great fashion tips for yourself or the man in your life.

To RSVP, or for special accommodations, call (412) 548-4300, ext. 1220.

Few people know the latest fashion trends better than Tom Julian. And now he’s got not one but two books to prove it.

RMU knows fashion. Who knew?
