Thom Browne is set to introduce a new line to his eponymous brand, which will move away from his signature silhouette in favour of more conventional tailoring. Entitled “Thom Browne New York” the line is set to be released for Fall 2014.In a few short years Browne has become an icon in menswear, particularly famous for constructing very distinct looks in his collections as well as re-inventing the classic grey suit. A move towards the introduction of a more traditional and conservative line is seen as a way of expanding the Thom Browne brand. Although Browne has generated huge acclaim for his extreme tailoring of shrunken proportions, the aesthetic is not for the mild of heart.
In his own words the designer has described “Thom Browne New York” to be for a buyer “who likes the personality of my clothing, but wants a more classic proportion and fit.” No confirmation on price or dates of availability have been released, but the starting price for suits is said to begin at $2,200 and the line will include shirts, coats and accessories.
