Grungy Gentleman: NYFW FW18
Grungy Gentleman continually combines design with applied creativity. Beyond a fashion label, the company doubles as an agency equipped with the expertise to consult and converge sports, fashion, and entertainment into one innovative culture. Each piece looks to suit and inspire the man who is bold, intelligent, passionate and has fierce taste. By pairing such motivations with a stylistic finesse of masculine simplicity, the brand has found shining praise and renowned following from top names in the sports, music and entertainment industries.
“Grungy Gentleman is all about expression — merging style with individuality to help men accentuate their boldness, athleticism, and masculinity. The Grungy Gentleman fall/winter collection, the designs, and namely, the pre-existing ideals of our collaborators continue this mission. It’s an exciting, fresh take on urban style, athletic tailoring, and menswear alike — and we are truly excited to show our new collection on the runway.” – Jace Lipstein, Designer and Founder, Grungy Gentleman.
Grungy Gentleman’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection will showcase looks of both formal and casual style. The line boasts everything from blazers to crew necks, pants, outerwear, and leisurely sportswear. The collection experiments with garment structure and texture. Design is clean and non-traditional yet made cohesive through the neutral palette and patterns with the brand’s trademark six-stripe design incorporated throughout. Mixed integration of mesh, French terry, cotton and a sporty vibe lend the line an inspired and rebellious feel, and as always, fit to suit the gentleman.
Super Bowl Champion and 7-time Pro Bowler, Kansas City Chiefs Cornerback Darrelle Revis, has teamed up with Grungy Gentleman for a 10-piece capsule collection including short sleeve t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, crewneck sweatshirts, shorts, and joggers. The collaboration features hues of heather grey and black mixed with 3m detailing and Grungy Gentleman’s signature six stripes.
The Grungy Gentleman x Subway Tile Shirts collection will feature three designs appearing on the runway. The featured pieces will be available for purchase immediately following the runway show on the Subway Tile Shirts website along with Grungy Gentleman website, and released the following day at Rothman’s in Union Square.
The debut of the Grungy Gentleman x National Basketball Players Association collection will include a hat, t-shirt and bomber jacket, and will be available for NBA players only at the upcoming NBA All Star Weekend in Los Angeles following the runway show.
The Timberland runway collaboration launched one year ago at NBA All-Star weekend. It features three co-designed styles in the lineup: two 6” Premium Boots and one athletic-inspired Killington Oxford. The 6” Premium Boots features a translucent ice-bottom sole, and the oxfords showcase Grungy flair, boasting a speckled glow-in-the-dark sole. Each shoe is visibly imprinted with the signature Grungy Gentleman six-stripe insignia, while the tongues have been customized with the same symbol.
Through combination of design and creativity, Grungy Gentleman aims to leverage fashion as a personal branding tool for the rebel spirit, the fierce go-getter, and the risk taker.
