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.

In the 1970s & ’80s, Charles Hix provided gentlemanly style advice on the pages of GQ and in his best-selling books. Style, in his view, is as simple as “enlisting clothes to make the most of what nature has passed your way.” Because they’re timeless, we’re peppering Throwback Thursday posts with some of Hix’s greatest styling and grooming hits.

Every guy wants to be his own man–but style-wise, it’s intimidating to strike out on your own. Never fear. Seriously, never. For a guy who wrote the rule books on style, Hix seems to revel in the manly pursuit of throwing them away.
