The inaugural New York Men's Fashion Week featured a lot of hot looks for the sartorially-inclined casual dresser. Among the shows that caught our eye was Grungy Gentleman, the New York-based men's lifestyle brand that was a featured attraction at Fashion Houston last fall.
The spring/summer 2016 collection, titled "Defense Wins Championships," includes a new double G logo on T-shirts, two-tone patterned shorts and shirts, and luxurious athletic tailoring. We particularly like the cobalt varsity joggers — pants with striped elastic cuffs at the ankles that combine the best features of sweat pants and slacks and can be worn to casual gatherings — and an ivory big-lapeled trench that looks good over just about anything.
And not to be missed are the line of Uggs for Men footwear made especially for the Grungy Gentleman. The Freamon shoe in custom cobalt blue, embossed with a “G” on the tongue a white rubber sole, is a standout.
