Check Out Public School..........Available to you at Barneys on Madison Ave.
They say that clothes make the man and while the jury’s out on just who “they” are, that doesn’t mean you can’t take their word for it. Instead of standing around lolly-gagging, waiting for your manhood to be made by that ripped t-shirt you’ve had since high school and those corduroy pants you’ve been rocking since grunge was in, maybe you should just consider upgrading your wardrobe. We’re certainly not suggesting you enter the realm of the suit, we’re merely suggesting you get a head start on looking more say, 2008.

New York isn’t the only influence here though as the clothing melds European tailoring with the a Japanese streetwear sensibility.
