Tom Julian ’84 Publishes Book on Men’s Fashion

I’ve never been known as “fashionable.”

When I was in grade school, I regularly wore red-and-black checkered suspenders to school. Seriously. In high school, sometimes I wore sweatpants with a matching sweatshirt. Most of the time, however, it was the standard jeans, jean jacket, backwards Motley Crüe hat, and my favorite black sneakers. It’s hard to believe I couldn’t find a girlfriend.


Tom Julian, a 1984 graduate of Robert Morris University, has never had a problem with fashion.


As president and founder of Tom Julian Group, “a global business enterprise creating innovative and visionary branding solutions for Fortune 500 companies in the fashion, retail, financial, automotive and hospitality industries,” this RMU alumnus can not only tell you a thing or two about the latest trends in men’s fashion, he can also provide companies with expert advice on branding and marketing.


Now Tom is announcing the release of his new book: The Nordstrom Guide to Men’s Style.


According to the website, in the book Tom “…demystifies the terms, rules and logic used by menswear insiders so you can choose the right fabrics and patterns, select appropriate cuts and accessories, find the best fit, create your own personalized look and assemble the perfect wardrobe for your lifestyle.”


When it comes to style, few people are as knowledgeable as Tom. For 14 years he served as a celebrity reporter and chronicler of “red carpet” trends for the Style Section of for oscar.com, the official website of the Academy Awards®. He’s also been a guest and fashion analyst on national TV shows and stations like “Live With Regis & Kelly” and E! Entertainment Television.

If you’d like a signed copy of Tom’s new book, head over to Nordstrom’s at Ross Park Mall on Saturday, Oct. 3, from noon to 2 p.m. Just be sure to RSVP by Sept. 29 to Belinda@tomjuliangroup.com.


And please, for Tom’s sake, don’t wear sweatpants.
