The A&I team got to meet with legendary Tim Gunn while he was visiting the Windy City to promote his new book, Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor! We made the stylish star a custom pair of monogram cufflinks and had our own “make it work” moment when we realized we only had 48 hours to produce them!
Our hustle paid off, just check out Gunn’s smile of approval as he poses with the cufflinks.
Can you guess what his middle name is from his monogram, TGM? No, it doesn’t stand for Tim Machine Gunn – it’s actually Tim MacKenzie Gunn!
Our brand manager even got a hug from Mr. Gunn…JEALOUS! She said, “Gunn was down-to-earth, full of jokes and spent the afternoon discussing not only his triumphs, but also what he has learned from his failures.” That’s right, even Gunn has fallen down a few times!
Gunn advised, you will try accomplish so many things in life and no matter how hard you work, life will try to push you down. But you have to get up and keep going…”you have to be a Weeble,” he said. Well, he sure is one stylish Weeble!
