Rag & Bone

How to layer for winter? Good question, because more clothes = more decisions. For inspiration and guidance, we asked Senior Stylist Jodi Taylor to dress model musician Ryan Neighbors and give us a note on her thought process. This is outfit three of four.


Date night:

“Lots of guys look the same. It helps to look a little different. No hate to sport coats, which can definitely set a cool tone. But if you’re feeling spicy, for your next night out remix your outfit. Replace your sport coat with a bomber jacket and layer over a button-up.”

Occupying a supremely trustable space in the designer category, rag & bone makes clothes you don’t have to think hard about. They look and feel great, every time.

Recently, rag & bone honchos Marcus Wainwright and David Neville launched Standard Issue, a line they hope you’ll consider even less carefully.

It’s not that they don’t want to engage intellectually. It’s that they want to provide an automatic option for men who seek an unflashy wardrobe foundation–and who appreciate the kind of perfection that comes from British tailoring, where the label and logo aren’t important, but a certain cleanness radiates when you’re wearing the garments.

In our view: mission accomplished.

Read on for Wainwright and Neville’s explanation of Standard Issue–they’re inspired by Japan and the military–and to see images of their office spaces.

This way for the Q&A

Our Men’s Fashion Office is all up in the mix at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, and the most photographed member of the team by far is Danny Mankin, Men’s Styling Manager. Which does not surprise us. Everyone’s looking good here, but that excellent fit you see above is pretty much a regular Tuesday for Danny.

Being bombarded with style is exciting but can overwhelm, so to get our minds right, we’ve been enjoying post-show breakdowns with our Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls.

Here’s Jorge on the difference between runway shows and designer presentations (#NYFWM has both) and the events & spring/summer 2016 collections by Suit Supply, rag + bone, Todd Snyder and Michael Bastian.



We asked Jorge Valls, our Men’s Fashion Director, to hand-select his favorite pieces from the upcoming Anniversary Sale.


rag & bone Maddox shirt jacket

“This military overshirt is tough, masculine and stylish.”


Wallin & Bros. Jackson french terry striped crew neck

“I love stripes and this sweatshirt hints at its nautical origins, but the dark background keeps it modern.”


Nike Free Trainer 5.0 V6 Trainer

“It’s all about white sneakers! This pair is incredibly versatile and you can wear them with just about anything.”


The 2015 Anniversary Sale doesn’t start until July 17, but Nordstrom Rewards members get early access starting today (July 9). Get all the details here.


What to wear for spring? How to rock spring shoes? In this series we’ll look at five spring shoes and show you two ways to wear each, with guidance from our Men’s Styling Manager Danny Mankin. Because life is better with options.

“With a clean white sneaker like this, you can verge into formal territory by dressing down a navy suit with a t-shirt. In this situation the t-shirt and the shoes are coordinating with each other, giving a casual balance to the dressy suit. White sneakers are also like a blank canvas you can go wild with, so busy patterns and high-contrast work perfectly; you don’t have to worry about being ‘too cray.’”

Our guest editor Thig Nat (right)—a polished professional by day, hip-hop musician and talented photographer by night—possesses an innate sense of style that shines through on the microphone as much as it does in his personal appearance.

Fall Accessory: The Umbrella

Five guys who look great with an umbrella: George Clooney (as in The Good German above), Gene Kelly, David Beckham, Barack Obama, Justin Timberlake.

For some of us the umbrella is a necessary evil—one left all too often, unfortunately, in cabs, restaurants and cocktail bars. But in the right hands, an umbrella is also a thing of refinement.

Keep reading for our guide to pairing the foul-weather essential with jackets and accessories that’ll help you dial in a smart, practical look that’s right for you.

These visually striking and subliminally comedic portraits (seriously, when’s the last time you saw Jerry Seinfeld mug this meanly?), commissioned by New York brand rag & bone, came across our desk a few weeks ago. But today—with the launch of our latest limited-time, Olivia Kim-curated shop, Pop-In@Nordstrom x rag & bone—seemed like an ideal time to call them to your attention.

Keep reading to see more of this series by talented English photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath (a former avid skateboarder and punk band bass player who has since shot for high-profile publications like Vogue, Wired and Rolling Stone). The impressive body of work includes GQ’s deftly sardonic “Style Guy” Glenn O’Brien, NBA badass Carmelo Anthony, and many more men and women of all ages—a testament to the universal appeal of rag & bone’s modern-meets-heritage menswear.

You met him (mostly from the knee-down) in our Sneakers in Seattle video and corresponding Q&A. You might have caught his hip-hop group, The Physics, performing live on globally streaming public radio station KEXP. Your fiancée has probably even heard one of his tracks 1,000 times while analyzing the latest slo-mo wedding video craze.

His name is Thig Nat, and the “Nat” part of his name is short for “Natural”—a reference that applies to his abilities on a microphone as well as his innate knack for wearing classic, versatile clothes that look good without trying too hard.

Keep reading to see how Thig put a modern spin on three menswear staples that he selected from our store: a henley, a trench coat, and slip-on sneakers.
