Whether you’re a man, or purchasing for the men in your life, you’ll appreciate these fashion forward labels that are ideal for work, play and exploring the city,

Onassis Clothing was created with a basic concept: construct the perfect woven shirt using the finest craftsmanship imaginable. After experimenting for more than a year, the result was an unbelievably soft and luxurious feeling shirt with quality buttons, and a tailored fit that is high-end enough to transition from day to night, and casual to formal. Each shirt collar is uniquely designed with precise curvatures at the back for a perfect neckline fit with no puckering or lift. Buttons for Onassis shirts were designed by the oldest button-maker in Japan. The same attention to detail and craftsmanship extends to the entire Onassis line, which includes denim jeans, premium tees, jackets, and sweaters, and can be perused at or in Soho at 71 Greene Street in New York City.

Lee jeans impart a casual flair and comfortable, tailored fit. Choose from an array of styles and hues at, which includes boot cut, straight leg, regular, work-wear and more. These jeans are crafted to last, incredibly comfortable, and easy on your wallet – even though they look pricey. Pair them with a blazer or polo shirt and you’re ready for action.
