TGIF….Independent Fashion Friday that is! All of our attention is turning towards Nolcha Fashion Week: New York this week, and we are so excited to share this seasons Men’s wear designers with you.
About: Established in 1922 by Dr. Albert Dormanns Alberto is a 92 year old family run business. Based in Monchengladbach, Germany, Alberto produces more than one million pants a year and is sold in 60 countries. Alberto has shown what it takes to design high quality, contemporary fashion and pants that fit well. The experience of 3 generations of the Alberto family unites technological innovation, professional workmanship and an instinct for trends.
Name: Carl Gross
About: CARL GROSS, founded in 1925, is represented in more than 23 countries. The company was established in 1925 as a textile manufacturer and decided to focus only on menswear in 1965. Fall 2014 marks the first US entry for Carl Gross.
About: Founded in 1987, CODICE specialises in men’s wear. CODICE embodies the polished, sophisticated ease that are the hallmarks of Italian style in a clean, spare, yet never overly basic collection of knit tops, t-shirts, polos & fine gauge sweaters. Each piece is peppered with thoughtful details like contrast stitching, piped yoke seams, novel graphics on the t’s, and every piece is so soft to the touch that the refined depth of the design is immediately evidenced.
About: Established in 1926 by Georg Haupt in Germany, Haupt shirts is a family run business now headed by Georg’s grandson, also named Georg Haupt. The brand started as an apron and kitchen uniform manufacturer before switching over to men’s shirts completely. After the Second World War, the Haupt family moved the company from eastern Germany to the town of Lippstadt in the west, narrowly missing the closure of the Iron Curtain. The brand is strong throughout Northern Europe and Scandinavia, selling to the better men’s speciality store market—much as it does in North America.
