Evolution in fashion is inevitable, and seasoned brands understand how to respond without compromising quality. Pennsylvania homegrown label Bill Khakis is no exception. The American made brand is approaching their 25th year in business and remains a leader in the marketplace for quality menswear. The company founder, Bill Thomas, took his early inspiration for the label from a vintage pair of World War II khaki’s he picked up at an Army surplus store in college. The pants were extremely comfortable with great attention paid to the construction, stitching, and quality, of which he had not found in modern brands. For more than two decades, Bills Khakis, have been designing, manufacturing, and producing, quality high-end menswear sold in retailers worldwide. At the March Press Preview in NYC, the American Menswear brand, Bills Khakis unveiled, not one, but TWO collections for Fall/ Winter 2014. The first collection showcased the brands signature seasonal collection featuring sweaters, waxed canvas coats, and best their selling pants in various materials and colors. Pictured are a few of my favorites from the collection. The second was the new Tea Label collection geared towards a younger demographic.
The collection was created to bridge the gap between classic menswear sizing and the recent demand for “slimmer cut styles” trending in menswear over the last few years. The collection was filled with slimmed down versions of the brands most trusted styles in fresh colors and over-dyed fabrics. Included in the line are equally slim style shirts, and tee’s, five pocket jeans, and shrunken blazers, ideal for any hip modern man. The brands founder Bill Thomas is not swayed easily by trends. However, he feels the collection compliments the brand philosophy and traditional roots.
Bravo to the team at Bills Khakis for TWO collections and one BIG VICTORY! xo, BDG P.S. Not ready to think about your Fall wardrobe yet? Why not head over to billskhakis.com and checkout the summer sale going on now!
