For the 3rd year in a row GQ has found some of the best new menswear designers out there and have teamed up with Gap to help sell and promote these new brands. Each designer created a capsule collection that was released earlier this week and are all available in-store or online now.
John Elliot + Co.
John Elliott of John Elliott + Co is a master of modern basics making a name for himself by bringing a tailor’s eye to sweatpants and hoodies. His childhood obsession with skateboarding and grunge informs the stylish details in this collection of sportswear. From hoodies and tees to sweats and denim, John Elliott + Co’s impeccably fitting staples are truly pieces to live in.
En Noir is a New York-based label with a dark side. Designer Rob Garcia executes high fashion pieces rooted in a ‘back to black’ philosophy, often with unexpected details constructed in leather. With a no-holds-barred approach to design, En Noir brings a rebel edge to casual style.
Brooklyn Tailors creates top-notch menswear with slim, tailored-to-a-T silhouettes for guys who are ready to grow up and suit up without losing their edge. Designer Daniel Lewis’ influences include rock ‘n’ rollers both past and present—and he knows that entering a more professional phase in life doesn’t mean the fun is over.
The original M.Nii—a tailor shop in Hawaii that specialized in custom trunks for serious surfers—closed in 1968. Lucky for us, it was revived in 2011 by designer John Moore, who was inspired by its easy style and commitment to durable construction. Today, the LA-based designer is making waves with soft striped tees, fitted trunks, and even outerwear.
The collections are being sold in various Gap stores all over the US or can be found online now. Check it out now for the best selection before everything is sold out.
