What an honor! Over the next few months, in partnership with GQ magazine and GAP, I’ll be revealing the new pieces from the Best New Menswear Designers of America. The full collection will be released in September, but until then, I’ll be wearing prominent pieces from each brand.
This month, I'm sporting a brand that I absolutely love. You guys know I'm a sucker for pieces which are Made In Japan pieces.This brand is an absolute treat!. Here's their story on GQ.com.
" In college, The Hill-Side co-founder Emil Corsillo began obsessing over Japanese workwear brands, fashion magazines, and selvage denim after meeting a stylish Japanese dude Hisashi Oguchi. Together with Corsillo's brother Sandy, they went on to launch their label as an accessories line, doing square-bottom ties in rare textiles often sourced by Oguchi in Japan. Though they can now dress a man head to toe (in pieces like chambray shirts, linen ties, tweed herringbone jackets, and sneakers made from blanket-striped wool), "our approach to making garments comes from our approach to making ties," Emil says, "which for years was: We make the same object every season but offer it in thirty or forty materials."
