About Public School

You can learn a lot from P. Diddy, but eventually it’s time to go back to school. That’s what Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne discovered in 2007 when the two Sean John designers launched their own Public School label. If the marauding ’70s gangs from <i>The Warriors</i> were to put down their baseball bats and take a few style tips from modern-day Japanese streetwear, they might emerge with something like Chow and Osborne’s high-end hoodies, jeans, and jackets. Melding European tailoring with an intentionally skewed aesthetic—“perfection in imperfection” is the stated goal—Public School could earn you extra credits in street cred.
