Prep-school dropout and GED success story Scott Disick has been on a quest to make a name for himself as a style icon in recent years, from dressing like an American Psycho extra to his role as Lord Disick. Having never watched any of the Kardashian shows, I was, up until very recently, gloriously unaware of Mr. Disick. However, after seeing photos of him sidling up to fellow Kardashian boyfriend Kanye West at Paris Fashion Week, I couldn’t help but wonder who exactly he was, and why he looked like that if he wasn’t a cartoon.
Luckily, a quick Internet browse brought me up to speed on Disick's time-consuming morning rituals and penchant for luxury items, from Patek watches to Tom Ford suits. This is something that would make sense if he, let's say, worked in an office. The Tom Ford suit would be great for that occasion, among many others – including going to meetings, briefing your boss, or meeting clients for lunch. However, as far as I can tell, Scott Disick definitely doesn’t do any of that.
The Internet tells me he has some sort of connection with GNC and might work for them – an association that came about after some of the Kardashians began hawking their products. Also, he briefly ran a sushi restaurant.
Essentially, Disick is a reality TV star, and he is not just any reality star. He is one that wakes up every morning and plays a very expensive, very entertaining round of dress-up. Of course, this doesn’t mean that Tom Ford suits are only for the office, or that reality stars shouldn’t be allowed to wear real people clothes (we don’t judge here at TFL).
At the end of the day, what we can be certain of is that Scott Disick is definitely not a figment of our collective imagination or an elaborate piece of performance art. No, that would be way too simple an explanation for what you see here.
