Bloomberg Pursuits Taps Troy Patterson as Style Editor

He starts Oct. 3.

Earlier this year, Troy Patterson wrote about “The Politics of the Hoodie” for The New York Times Magazine. And in 2015, in the pages of Slate, he debated with Amanda Hess the virtues of men’s short shorts.

Starting next week, Patterson will lend this general fashion perspective to all corners of Bloomberg Pursuits as the publication’s style editor, a new position. From today’s announcement:

Most recently a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, Patterson has also been the television critic at Slate, a style and etiquette advice columnist at Slate, the movie critic at SPIN and the book critic at Entertainment Weekly, where he began his career as an editorial assistant. Patterson holds a B.A. in English Literature from Princeton University.

“Troy is a fantastic writer who brings an unparalleled intelligence to his style coverage,” says editorial director Emma Rosenblum. “I can’t wait for him to share his curiosity, wit, and good taste with our readers.”

Patterson has contributed to a number of other publications over the years including the Wall Street Journal, GQ, W and Men’s Vogue.
