In the spirit of celebrating the 4th of July, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite American Designers, Thom Brown. The more and more I learn about the designers that have paved the way in this industry, the more I can appreciate those that are from right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.
If you’re a fan of GQ or any of the other fashion/style magazines you have no doubt seen Browne’s work. He is the founder and head of design for Thom Browne, a New York City based menswear brand. Browne was named the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Menswear Designer of the Year in March 2006 and named the GQ Designer of the Year in November 2008. He has a distinct style, which is accented by the use of red, white and blue stripes.
Here are a few of our favorite looks from Thom Browne.
