Since its 2011 debut, the contemporary men’s clothing label Tovar has landed on the “brands to watch” lists of many a fashion critic — and it’s plain to see why. Tovar’s crisp cotton twill pants, softly draping sweatshirts and cardigans, linen blazers and baseball jackets and other designs hint at the military aesthetic without losing their casual, relaxed vibe. The result: threads friendly to seasoned jetsetters and budding fashionistos alike. An alumnus of Band of Outsiders, Rock & Republic, Orthodox and other celebrated menswear labels, Tovar founder Terence Yeung sticks to simplicity and functionality in designing his collections. We think it’s a winning formula.
