Sid Says


Meet Luke Merryman

Go Behind The Scenes At Mr. Sid And Meet Our Amazing Staff Of Unique Individuals. This Week, Luke Merryman.

1. How did you get your start in the fashion industry?

I started out as an intern for the HUGO BOSS showroom in NYC. I fell in love with the energy and excitement all around me. I was hired as a Visual Merchandiser after helping to decorate for the annual Christmas Party.

2. What is something that not many people know about you?

Probably that I love my alone time. I consider myself a social and outgoing person, but at the same time, I value time alone to re-group and re-energize myself.

3. What is your favorite Seaport restaurant?

There are so many. Right now I am loving bartaco. Great hand crafted cocktails and the street corn fritters are delish!. The atmosphere is also warm and inviting.

4. What are your favorite designers for Spring/Summer 19?

I’m so excited for the Spring/Summer season. We have beautiful over dyed shirts from Tintorio Mattei. Also, Lubium soft jackets in bright pops of color which need to be an essential for men’s wardrobe this season.

5. What is your favorite drink?

I keep it simple. Either a Vodka soda or a high quality tequila on the rocks.

6. Where would you like to go on your next vacation and why?

Australia. I love the aussie sensibility of work hard, play hard. And the coast looks breathtaking.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi!

7. Who is your inspiration and/or mentor?

I’ve had a lot of mentors over the years, but the most constant has been my Uncle Rick. He has stuck with me every step of the way and always has the best advice professionally and personally.

8. What do you like to do for fun?

Eat! My poor shirt buttons. I love to cook. It is very calming to me. I hate the clean up though.

9. What is your dream car?

If i won the Powerball tomorrow, I would consider buying a Bentley or a Rolls Royce. Navy Blue!

10. What is your favorite movie and why?

I’m very interested in documentaries. I love learning about people who have done extraordinary things.
