Sure it’s winter, but Mr. Turk talks swim trunks
Question of the Day
The coats and sweaters, skirts and trousers on the models were inspired by a drive west on Sunset Boulevard through Los Angeles to the sea, which is where the tiny guy swim gear by Mr. Turk comes in.
Swimsuits weren’t a part of the show, being a summer rather than an autumn article of clothing, but Skow was happy to share his chance encounter about two years ago with Miller, aka the hunky husband of gay activist and writer Dan Savage - and the fact that Miller’s rockin’ hard body on Instagram has produced a bump in business for Mr. Turk.
The suit in question is the Mr. Turk Lagos swim brief - make that very brief. Soon Miller, who had spent years at home raising the now-teen son he adopted with Savage, had a growing Instagram following that now amounts to about 12,000. He shares lots of other photos there, but the swimsuit shots linger in one’s memory, if you will.
“He’s just a friend of mine,” Skow laughs. “I pay him in clothes. I say whatever you want I’ll send you as long as you Instagram it.”
