Macy's Is Getting New Suit Line By Ryan SeacrestSo, entertainer turned business man Ryan Seacrest is starting his own men’s suit line and for a man that wears suits on a regular basis he should be up for the challenge.  The line will be labeled Ryan Seacrest Distinction which will be sold at Macy’s and the official launch is planned for September but you can sneak a peek at the line here.  The pants in the color-coded men’s fashion line was inspired by the one and only Frank Sinatra after a visit to his Palm Springs home.  Hey, where ever you can find inspiration is a good thing and I am sure I would feel the same way.  If you have heard about Ryan Seacrests new line we recommend you look at Coach’s new men’s line.

Pret-a-reporter recently sat down with Ryan Seacrest for one on one to discuss his new line and all that Distinction will offer even the most color blind of men:

Congratulations. This must be some kind of superhero suit line since it comes from the master of multitasking.

I will tell you this: Every suit and tux is made so you can move quickly through life. The design is active, and you can move through life quickly and even put this together in a quick fashion. That was part of building this line — the ability of guys to find something they like and quickly put it on and stay on the move.

Today you’re a fashion icon, but is it true there were some husky jeans in your closet back in the day?

I used to dread going back to school because my mother would say, “All right, we’re going shopping and we’re going to get some new jeans and new shirts.” Then we’d always end up in the husky section to buy jeans, because that’s what fit me. I didn’t realize that “husky” was a nice way of saying I was chubby. I didn’t love shopping back then.

What about now?

I love it now! One of the great perks of being on television is getting to put on your uniform and going out and playing the game. Going out onstage is like game day — you get to go out and put on your suit and play. So moments before I go out on Idol, [there’s] that fun part of putting on a suit and feeling good in it and walking out and trying to convey the confidence that you get from putting on a good suit.

You’re known to sport Burberry suits on American Idol. What was the conversation like between you and Burberry when you told them you were launching a suit line?

Christopher [Bailey] has made the most amazing suits and tuxes for me for over a decade. I have had the greatest opportunity, through him, to wear great clothes. I told him about this, and he said it was a great idea; he was very supportive of it … there was nothing but enthusiasm. He’s a great friend.

What was the best piece of advice you received in the design process?

The best piece of advice was more of an understanding of how the business works inside. I don’t know that I appreciate fully— when you have a line, there are many different partners inside that line that make the different products for you. And when we met with all of the best ones, our real initiative was to create this amazing line with great detail and have it be affordable.

Is it in your contract that you have to wear your suits at events like the Emmys?

I don’t know if it’s in a contract or not, but I will. I want to wear my tuxes on New Year’s Eve. I want to wear my tuxes to the award shows. I love these suits.

If you are wanting a complete suit you are looking at spending $550 and up on the new suit line.  You can even pick up a button-downs topping for $69.50 up to a tux.  Time will tell on how well the new Distinction line will do and we will keep you up to date on the latest.

About Nick Dean

I love to go on treks even if it is out in my backyard. If I am not on treks, I am at the office working and trying to keep a good eye out for men's fashion. It is important to me to look sharp while being comfortable and I will share my findings here.
