“These are an awesome representation of what Mark McNairy does so well: taking something we all know and making it his own. They are a fun, sexy update to such a classic men’s item. What guy wouldn’t want to wear them?”
—Madeline Weeks, fashion director
In our recent Style Bible, we chose the six best new designers in America. Since then, we’ve been working with the winners and Gap to bring a special collection to a mall near you. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s (literally) in store this month, starting September 27.
Mark McNairy New Amsterdam: “Gap used to be just basics: jeans, T-shirts, chinos. Camo cargos are one of my basics, and I’m doing a pair in charcoal gray wool, so now they’re, like, the new basic.”
Hitmaker Pharrell Williams and menswear’s most talked-about designer, Mark McNairy, have joined forces for this season’s buzziest new label, Bee Line for Billionaire Boys Club. Streetwear may never fit the same way again. Here, in an exclusive shoot, the duo wear—and discuss—the debut collection.
It’s a match made in mutual appreciation heaven, courtesy of Twitter. Mark McNairy, one GQ’s Best New Menswear Designers, was a fan of Danny Brown’s music, tweeted the rapper, and before you could say McNasty the two were shooting the New Amsterdam Spring 2013 look book.
To celebrate the newly-crowned Best New Menswear Designers in America, we teamed up with Jake Davis to produce a test shot for each of our six nominees. Here, McNasty blows a cig in slow motion. Badass.
