Yup I know – menswear isn’t normally the type of story I write about but I got wind of a new Gap Men’s Collection featuring GQ’s six Best New Menswear Designers in America for 2012. This limited edition collection will include one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from accessories to outerwear – each piece showcasing each rising designer’s signature spin on iconic menswear pieces.
The collection is pretty affordable too with essentials like boxer briefs starting at $20 (although I find this pricey for underwear!) all the way up to $348 for a leather bomber jacket (this I can understand).
The collection will be available at select Gap stores world wide on September 27th, 2012.
The six designers and the pieces from their exclusive capsule collections will be featured in a special 14-page ad insert in the October issue of GQ.
Here’s a look at the designers and their pieces:
My husband definitely loves shopping at the Gap although his height can make shopping frustrating (he’s got the opposite problem that I have standing at 6’5″!) but I’m interested to see which pieces (if any) of this collection catch his eye. Will you be checking it out?
