WHAT I’M WEARING NOW An Yves Saint Laurent leather jacket and ostrich boots, American Apparel jeans and a vintage Christian Dior shirt. I buy a lot of these T-shirts from Eleven on Elizabeth Street. They feel sweet against the skin. My watch is a Seiko from the ’80s. It looks like a gold Rolex, which I can’t afford yet. The glasses are Ray-Ban. I have five pairs, all in different shades of amber. I love amber. It’s a beautiful color for men. The only perfume I wear is because of its amber color — Azzaro, which is an old cheap cologne for workers.

STYLE CREDO To me, the best time for men was in the ’70s. I would love to look like Polanski or Jack Nicholson back then, the way they wore their jeans with just a shirt, a good watch, glasses and a nice white jacket. It was simple, but really sexy. At the beginning of this decade all the men got very glamorous. They started buying a lot of clothes. Me, I don’t like it. When you notice clothing on a man, I find it suspicious.

ON INSPIRATION Nothing is more inspiring than love and true sexuality. People say my magazine is very provocative or transgressive. Not at all. If there is nudity and sex, it is not to provoke, it is to show the beauty and love. In the next issue, I have the artist Dash Snow wearing women’s clothes from the fall collections. To see a beautiful man like Dash, who for me is American aristocracy— this is inspiring.

CURRENT PROJECTS We have a new book called “Purple Anthology.” It’s the first 15 years, edited from more than 100 issues. I’m also doing a magazine for Chanel to accompany their Mobile Art project. I do one for each of the cities it travels to. In October, it will be in New York. It’s very exciting. I’m good at doing magazines.

He's good at what he does but I can't get over how sleazy he seems.. Some people are sleazy in fun ways but he just scares me

I love his style... he really makes it work instead of making it look gross. That python jacket is pretty amazing.

he's all right,i suppose. i can't say that i relate to him as much as i do his former purple co-founder eileen fleiss. and he's hangs with terry who bores me to tears.....and pretty sleazy himself. he actually kind of reminds me of the guy who runs american apparel. i do however like his surface2air cargo bag in that first pic of post 6.

terry and Dov, on the other hand, ooze sleaziness from every pore. That's maybe because they're more "around" and I've heard more freaky stories about them, though.
