Todd Synder - A new men's Line
His debut collection included 60 pieces of tailored clothing, sportswear and furnishings mixing British tailoring with American vintage sensibility. A style that is simply wearable but smart and that is truly reflects his background in the fashion world from working as a tailor’s assistant in Des Moines to his 18 years at Polo Ralph Lauren and J. Crew among others.
Tailored pieces like the coat above along side cargo pants and jeans. Military and utility influences have their share in the big puzzle in the shape of officer’s coat, selvage chinos and aviator-inspired leather jackets.
Price points range from woven shirts at $180 and sweaters at $300-$400 to jeans at $210, a wool peacoat for $850 and three-piece suits for $1,100.
"Our customer is an all-American guy, but global. He understands great food and architecture, and we’re making luxe versions of classic items, so there are a lot of highs and lows.” Snyder said.
I like the fact that he chose to launche the line slightly after fashion week, where hopefully he was able to get the needed attention.
John Varvatos be aware cause there might be a new sheriff in town......
A man of style support and wish you good luck!
