GQ Announces Best New Menswear Designers in America for 2012
Selected by editor-in-chief Jim Nelson, creative director Jim Moore, and GQ’s fashion team, GQ presents their sixth annual search for the future of menswear. They have presented the six designers making noise right now. With being considered as the best new menswear designers, be on the look out for some nice limited-edition collections that they’ll be creating in conjunction with Gap.
The “Best New Menswear Designers in America” selected by GQ for 2012 are:
BLK DNM: New way-downtown aesthetic from the former J.Lindeberg man. Think black jeans with a tux jacket
Mark McNairy New Amsterdam: McNairy kick-started his line by injecting color into a staid pair of bucks. By the time he got to pants and shirts, he’d found a formula: Take something basic and shake all the boring out of it. (Sometimes that means zebra prints and digital camo.
Ovadia & Sons: The brothers Ovadia are Brooklyn twins with a penchant for high-end suiting and all the trappings that come with it.
Saturdays: Small-collar dress shirts, trim khakis, and color-blocked board shorts for surfers in a concrete jungle.
Todd Snyder: A vet of Polo and J.Crew, Snyder makes clothes for the guy who wears a jacket and tie because he wants to.
Do you agree with the list? Who should get the top honor for 2012?
