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.
Jeans are a must here, but the designers at rag & bone also distinguish themselves with dressier fare like these tailored-to-perfection pants and shorts. And button-downs are cut close yet still roomy enough for lounging.
This joint sale features casualwear with a bit of high-design flair. Band of Outsiders offers daring mixes of fabric and style — from cashmere rugby shirts to nylon waistcoats — that have attracted the likes of Kanye West and Jason Schwartzman. Comune keeps things mellow with tees, flannel shirts and jeans. Denim also makes up part of Rag & Bone’s line, along with an impressive array of coats and blazers.
