Hollywood stars and uber-stylish gentlemen have praised Band of Outsiders’ retro-vintage, all-American collections since designer Scott Sternberg founded the company in 2004. From crisp oxford shirts and suits to skinny ties, sporty knits and accessories, Sternberg’s award-winning menswear features expert construction, hand seams, and slim fits. In 2007 Sternberg expanded Band of Outsiders with Boy by Band of Outsiders — a ready-to-wear womenswear line whose fans include Miranda Kerr and First Lady Michelle Obama (whose perfectly fitting toile de jouy dress seems made exclusively for her); in 2011 he added Girl by Band of Outsiders, another line for women that features flouncy dresses, crocheted tops, and other ultra-feminine styles. Band of Outsiders’ collaborations with footwear makers Sperry Top-Sider and Manolo Blahnik have brought the label additional fans and prestige.
Leave it to this luxe label to dream up cashmere rugby shirts that are a gentlemanly blend of rugged and refined.

CAA agent turned designer Scott Sternberg launched his label Band of Outsiders in January 2004. Using vintage fabrics and hand-sewn seams, Sternberg quickly made a name for himself with his sharply cut shirts and skinny ties. Top stores and luxury boutiques quickly took notice of this emerging line and Band of Outsiders and Boy by Band of Outsiders (his old-school preppy women’s line) was picked up by Ron Herman in L.A. in addition to Jeffery, and Barneys New York. With a collection that can be described as “American” and “young,” Sternberg was honored with the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Emerging Talent in Menswear award, the Swarovski Award for Menswear and a nomination for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund to boot. The company has been on the forefront of the return of American tailored trends and these progressive designs enjoy nationwide distribution in high-end boutiques, top retailers and now, Gilt Groupe.
