2011 American Eclectic Style

by Sofroina Timmons

First, you need attitude. Second, you need attitude and an image to go with it. Third...Robert Graham. Robert Graham is one of the leading men's lines created by Robert Stock. If you think adjectives describing fabrics and design like elegant, sophistication, decadent are descriptions for women, think again. Men can expect refined suits with subtle touches of fabric trim on sport coats and jackets; tailored three-piece suits combined with contemporary casual styles. I can go on and on...and I will!

Robert Graham is an American-based company that is inspired by Saville Row fashion for the refined man (please stand up!). This line has luxury stamped all over it, using an array of elements in time and place; cleverly and intricately mixing fabrics, trims and embroidery creating vintage motifs with historical cultural statements an awe-inspiring landmarks.

For all of the men who embrace attention when looking fabulous, you can look forward to fall 2011 collection: Freshly Laundered by Robert Graham.
