Thom Browne (Coming Soon)
Thom Browne is an American fashion designer. He is the founder and head of design for Thom Browne, a New York City-based menswear brand. Thom Browne is widely recognized for challenging and modernizing today's uniform.
Having obtained a business degree at Notre Dame, Browne tried his hand at acting in LA. While auditioning and working in commercials Browne discovered a passion for altering vintage men’s tailoring with Johnson Hartig, now the co-designer of Libertine. Once resigned to the fact that acting was not the right path, Browne sold his car and moved to New York in 1997, taking up a job as a Giorgio Armani salesman. He was then taken on by Club Monaco, then owned by Polo Ralph Lauren . Lauren saw Browne’s potential and hired the designer to be a part of Club Monaco’s design and merchandising team.
Thom Browne influence has left a remarkable influence in this current 21st century. Browne’s brand is rooted in conservative gray flannel suits, fringed skirts, spiked balaclavas, and mink merkins. Short pants and shrunken silhouette, the classical gray suit, has always been Browne’s repertoire. More ideologically, it was a simple way to provoke a reaction from viewers.
