Billy Reid Works To Make Fashion Matter In An Era Of COVID-19 And Sweatpants
Billy Reid has built himself a fashion empire of sorts in an unlikely place: Florence, Alabama.
He ended up there, in his wife’s hometown, when the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks nearly wrecked his business. He had to rebuild more than once, and he’s adapting again to COVID-19.
But his clothes are known worldwide, and that’s not an exaggeration — Daniel Craig wore one of Reid’s peacoats in a James Bond movie.
Reid has a story about that. And another story starring Bear Bryant, the LSU tiger, and ... well, stick around and hear Reid tell it.
