Dear Mom and Dad,
This is what happiness looks like. Sorry you were so miserable in your own lives that you couldn’t allow me a chance at my own. I went out and found it anyway. I miss you, and will miss you even more this holiday season since you won’t allow me to come back home unless I have a woman on my arm. Oh by the way, we’ll still be using the family recipe for the stuffing, I’m sure it’ll be a hit with our friends.
Your son, his boyfriend, and our spoiled cat

Target customer: 22- to 38-year-old men, or the older man who just feels 22. A guy who likes to be different but not outrageous and is searching the hashtags #nyfw, #madefw or #menswear in hopes that something new and cool will come up on their phone screen for discovery.
