Based out of Richmond, Virginia, Need Supply Co. has developed into one of the leading resources for menswear both online and in retail. Adding to a list that includes Steven Alan and Claire Vivier, the clothier here considers Southern compatriot Mark McNairy in the latest edition of its educational Meet the Maker series. Though notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to formalities, when the conversation turns to design inspiration, McNairy has a mouthful to reveal. Enjoy the above as McNairy gives a raw take on the state of fashion, and how an observed lack of passion has driven him to create one of the most celebrated brands today. Afterwards, be sure to visit Need Supply Co.’s website to shop the latest from Mark McNairy.
