Actor Adam Pally Talks New NBC Show "Indebted," Kanye West, and Style

Adam Pally is an actor who you may know from his leading role on ABC's short-lived but much-loved sitcom "Happy Endings," as well as his recurring role on "The Mindy Project,"  and several other shows and films over the last decade. (He was even in Iron Man 3!) On this Anything But Fashion, Adam Pally and SEAM's Jake Woolf talk about his early days in comedy (including the time he auditioned for SNL—and why it didn't work out), his thoughts on pop culture lightning rods like Dave Chappelle and Kanye West, and why he's decided to dress it up in, let's say, interesting ways on all of his Conan O'Brien appearances over the years. Adam and Jake also talk about his new NBC show, "Indebted," which airs in early 2020, and many more topics including a CNN documentary that discusses how Harvard used to have a policy vetting applicants based on how jewish they seemed.

Man Vs. Jawnz With Adam Richman

Jake sits down with TV personality Adam Richman, who you may know from his time hosting Travel Channel’s insanely popular series Man Vs. Food. No, Adam is not in the fashion industry—but his passion for clothing and insight into the entertainment business make for an incredibly entertaining, epically long podcast. In this episode, Adam Richman dives into his pre Man Vs. Food struggles, how the show came about, his biggest purchase to date on clothing, what it’s like shopping as a big dude, and opens up about dealing with online trolls.

Madhappy's Josh Sitt On How to Secure the (LVMH) Bag

Madhappy is an LA-based label founded by Josh Sitt, Noah Raf, Peiman Raf, and Mason Spector—four dudes with no experience in the fashion world, but who struck a cord in culture by appealing to a new generation of tastes. Specifically, Madhappy doesn't play in the traditional sandbox of the fashion or streetwear space. They are not exclusive, but inclusive, and approach collections with a sense of positivity that rarely finds its way into the cynical world of apparel. Not only have customers taken notice, but the fashion system that Madhappy was built outside of has too—earlier this month, the brand announced that it had raised a $1.8 million dollar seed round, with LVMH as part of the raise. 

Joshua Sitt is a 23-year-old who grew up in New York City and knows all-too-well the rough edges NYC can give a person. For that reason, he explains on the podcast why he moved to LA, and despite what you might think, doesn't miss home at all. We also spoke to Josh about Madhappy's mental health initiatives and how the deal with LVMH went down.

We talked about growing up as the oldest of four, running your own business, the best restaurants in NYC, and how he's going to pop the question to his girlfriend. Jake also tests out two new segments, "Hate to See It / Love to See It" and "100 Grand Fantasy." 

Also, NEW SOLO SEGMENTS at the beginning of the episode. Listen to our new recurring segments that'll kick of each new ep, including "Luxury Jock of the Week," "WTF Fashion Moment of the Week," and "Must Cop of the Week."
