Derrill Radcliff Osborn is a retired American fashion executive. He descends from pioneers and ranchers who settled in the Portales area. After serving in the U.S. Army, Osborn started working at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City in 1964. He stayed for ten years, working his way up from a sales person to a buyer. Osborn briefly ran a men's clothing and antiques boutique in Beverly Hills before joining Neiman Marcus where he also worked as a buyer for six years before being appointed vice-president of men's tailored clothing. In 2002, Osborn retired from his position at Neiman Marcus.
Osborn helped introduce Italian menswear lines such as Zegna, Brioni and Kiton to the American market in the 1980s. He also promoted a return to three button suits for men. On questions of fashion, Osborn was often sought out by reporters to comment for articles in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other publications.
In addition to influencing fashion through his position, Osborn is known for his personal style. He wears a flamboyant mustache and often matches it with a wide brimmed hat. He's rarely seen without a fresh boutonniere. Osborn has been featured in magazines such as GQ, Vogue Hommes and Esquire.
