It’s amazing what people can do when they channel their frustration toward productive ends. Consider the story of Rag & Bone founders David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, who created their NYC-based line of men’s and women’s jeans and wardrobe staples after failing to find clothing they wanted to wear. Despite lacking formal fashion training, the two men set about creating their own denim collection by consulting with experienced craftspeople and learning on the job — in the process creating one of the world's most prestigious jeans labels. Rag & Bone applies its unique combination of fine tailoring and classic workwear aesthetics to denim, dresses, leather jackets, tailored shirts, and vintage-inspired boots, shoes and accessories. Now part of the fashion elite, Neville and Wainwright have won numerous CFDA awards while continuing to expand their empire via partnerships with like-minded folks such as legendary NYC tailor Martin Greenfield, the Bollman Hat Factory, and illustrator Lana Chun.
Understated but decidedly hip, these accessories from Rag & Bone can lend cool finishing touches to many summer (or fall) outfits. Try cinching a skinny belt over a tailored shift, or topping a preppy tee-and-jeans combo with a straw fedora. Another look to try: Hardware-heavy clogs paired with a breezy ensemble.
We’re all for playing fast and loose with the sartorial rules, but only when it’s appropriate. And if there’s one time when sticking to the classics is the right call, it’s a proper nighttime event. Galas, balls, red carpets—these are the realm of fine eveningwear. Make sure you’re up to the task with this collection of superlative suiting, shirts, and footwear.
As you’ve no doubt noticed, autumn has arrived. That means it’s time to trade that warm weather gear for sweaters, jackets, and heavier fabrics that can stand up to a brisk day. That, and get ready for the leaves to change. Here, an essential lineup of fall gear to see you through the season in style.
Sure, we love the classics, but great style isn’t limited to storied brands from days of old. Case in point: This collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories from a slew of talented upstarts. From canvas kicks to innovative updates on wardrobe essentials, these picks prove that the new kids have what it takes.
