    The guy was a brilliant marketer. I remember going by the shop on 5th Ave with it's "By Appointment Only" sign. The only person I ever knew who bought clothing from him went from having mansions in BH and several RR's to living in a 2 bedroom rental apt in the valley. He attracted a lot of guys who were into flash, but he sure knew what he was doing and how to work it.

    67 is too young. My thoughts are with his family. In memorium:

    That's really fine. Isn't he the only clothes seller who always in the store taking care of his customers?

    RIP, Bijan......

    I was only ever peripherally aware of him as a person, but his name and brand were always symbols of glamour in my mind. And I've never visited Los Angeles

    RIP

    I have never seen one of his products...

    I have heard of him a few times, that's it...

    67 is quite young anyway...

    RIP

    I'm about 400$/year from being in conversations where the name might appear.

    I learned it on the forvm

    His men's fragrance, widely available, is quite nice for a mainstream scent. I'll wear a spritz or two today in his memory.

    Never bought anything of his (clothing wise), never had much reason even to consider it, but nevertheless I always liked that he added a sense of fun and glitz to men's dressing, which even at its highest end often lacks a sense of romance and takes itself FAR too seriously. Like his items or not, he seemed to love what he did, and seeing that store and the yellow Rolls was a lot more fun than a dusty old bespoke workshop with a roll of cloth in the front window.

    RIP!

    I like how he said he was sorry that his clothing was the most expensive clothing in the world. I have a feeling he wasn't "too sorry" about it. Got to give the guy his dues. His clothing probably wasn't any better than other top designers/makers but his marketing was outstanding.
