Doppelganger’s dark, moody aesthetic may not be exactly what you’d expect from a men’s designer clothing label based in sun-and-fun Los Angeles. Then again, this emerging apparel brand — launched in 2010 by Eric Niccoli (also the founder of the contemporary men’s label Orthodox) — isn’t particularly concerned with following convention. Unexpected textures and details, muted colors, and slim cuts set Doppelganger’s hoodies, T-shirts and Henleys apart from the pack. Minimalist designs like the Gallo, a cotton canvas zip-front jacket in sleek charcoal grey, are masculine yet not overbearing. The clean lines and idiosyncratic details of Doppelganger’s edgy lifestyle brand deftly blends casual style with indie credibility.
