To create his chic, edgy men’s clothing, footwear and accessories, John Varvatos draws inspiration from his hometown of Detroit and the charismatic rock musicians it has spawned — including Jack White, Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop. John Varvatos Star USA, the younger brother of Varvatos’ flagship label the John Varvatos Collection, offers shoes and boots that are more everyday-casual than the pricier styles offered by its older sibling, but fancier than the high-tops and low-tops of Converse John Varvatos — Varvatos’ successful collaboration with the famous footwear brand. Stone-colored Chelsea boots, burnished leather chukka boots, hand-treated suede Schooner boat shoes, polished leather wingtips — Star USA has them all, with contrast stitching, antiqued buckles, and other finishing touches. Each expertly constructed style looks just as great with a tailored suit as with a pair of Varvatos’ slim-fitting jeans.
