Meet Menswear's New Guard
You may not have heard about these upstart labels yet—but you will soon.
Founded: Los Angeles, 2008, by Kyle Fitzgibbons
Backstory: After working at Band of Outsiders, Apolis Activism, and Bespoken (not to mention designing made-to-measure suits for NBA players), Fitzgibbons launched his own refined line.
Vibe: Tailored menswear with a masculine, elegant bent.
Buy This: The comfortably proportioned double-breasted suit.
Style Icon: "Harold in Harold and Maude. The idea of an old man in a young man's body is really fascinating."
Favorite Store: "Project Aegis in Shanghai, this clothing store started by two Taiwanese kids from Orange County. It's really high-concept rather than just showy, gold-fixture luxury."
(Unlikely) Style Mecca: "Orange County. A lot of artists and designers come out of there. My stuff is a reaction to that repressed culture."
