Last night we stopped by 380 Bleecker Street to celebrate the grand opening of Robert Graham’s first flagship store in New York City. This new space has 1,260 square feet of prime shopping space for a complete range of Robert Graham’s collection, including men’s sportswear, outerwear, premium denim, furnishings, accessories and women’s sportswear. The brand chose the West Village neighborhood for its roster of high fashion stores and brands, plus, Robert’s first ever apartment in New York City was just around the corner.
Though this is their first store in New York City, this is their fifth location to open this year, signaling a significant retail expansion for Robert Graham. The West Village location marks their 11th store operated in the United States. To help kick off the grand opening, Robert Graham will be hosting weekend events throughout December during which customers can enjoy light bites and wine for the holiday season. So don’t miss this new location to check out vintage vibes, sip some wine and of course shop the many collections under one roof. Congratulations on the new store Robert Graham.
We stopped by the Robert Graham Holiday 2013/Spring 2014 Preview to check out the PROJECT designer’s newest collection of signature menswear looks. The collection was a continuation of what the Robert Graham customers have come to expect; with fine stitch detailing, colorful wovens, and unique embroidery. The night showcased why Robert Graham has become a solid choice for the guy who wants to make a bold style statement. Plus, we weren’t mad at the fun socks merchandised amongst some seriously awesome cupcakes and movie-theatre popcorn.
Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.
We’ve just been dropped with a serious dose of Gant and we’re not complaining. Gant has released the Spring/Summer ‘14 look books for each of their collections: Gant, Gant Rugger, and Gant by Michael Bastian. Each collection has it’s own signature style, but Gant’s DNA of Americana heritage meets European luxury can been seen throughout. Check out each look book and decide which Gant collection best represents your style…or if you’re like us, we’ll take it all.
The #BloggerProject, created by PROJECT in conjunction with Marcus Troy has been a program that both our brands and attendees love. Many of you ask us where else to find menswear blogs and street style photography online. Well, aside from Tumblr and Style.com, we also look to sites like Fashion Beans, which has a dedicated section that is updated regularly. Check them out: http://ht.ly/oUwRR or follow them on Twitter @FashionBeans.

Levi’s always makes a mark on the PROJECT floor and this season they started a new marketing campaign called, “The Future Is Leaving” – a series of art projects asking their customers to discover and share more about who they are – as the world we live in is rapidly changing. The campaign asks participants to answer the question, ‘What Moves You?’ with an Instagram picture — including the hashtags #MakeOurMark and #Moves. We’re excited to follow along.
