The John Varvatos brand is one that is built on the philosophy of reaching back to look forward and this combination of the classic and the contemporary is what has defined its aesthetic. The clothing, accessories and footwear lines all have a very distinctively high quality feel, incorporating traditional tailoring and emphasising the use of fine fabrics but using modern lines and infusing everything with a great big dose of rock and roll edge. Shirts from the brand represent the breadth of tailoring skill, from traditional designs through to a contemporary take on the grandad collar. Bold checks, bright blues, sleek blacks and chambray all feature in the fabric choices available, as well as cotton and silk blends. The shirts come in regular and slim-fit with unique features, such as adjustable sleeves.
