#TGIF The Best Men's Style Brands of 2015
With 2015 nearly in the books, it’s high time that we pay homage to the designers and labels that are shifting the definition of what menswear is today. Skate-inspired designs—ranging from Palace’s South Bank staples to Gosha Rubchinskiy’s post-Soviet skater muses—prove that the well of design inspiration that is “sportswear” has grown to incorporate a variety of niches and subcultures; especially in 2015. It doesn’t hurt that the boys finally scored their own New York Fashion Week this year, with plenty of designers proving that menswear is one of the most interesting and innovative corners of the larger fashion world. That’s no joke either. From the low-key luxury that hit mass appeal on the topcoattails of Lemaire’s collaboration with Uniqlo, to the spread of L.A.’s grungy rocker aesthetic through the artful hand of Jerry Lorenzo and Fear Of God, men’s closets are becoming as diverse as the audience itself. But above the shifting tastes, trends, and designers—which, at times, has seemed like more like a game of musical chairs—there’s a selection of brands that have truly stood out among the rest. New York to Herzogenaurach, these are The Best Men's Style Brands of 2015.
