An interview with designer Joseph Abboud is presented. Abboud shares his mindset after taking the post of being creative director at The Men's Wearhouse in 2012, when he does not know how to write a business plan and does not trust most of his instincts. When asked how it feels that the label is still standing despite the change in ownership, he comments on how the brand was deteriorating from within and how their efforts helped stopped it.
