From new upstart labels to fresh offshoots from established brands, here are three all-new collections to keep on your radar for the coming spring.
A look from CWST's spring collection, available soon at Ron Herman and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
When Riviera Club, the relaxed California-cool label was shuttered, two of the gents behind the label relaunched the brand under a new name, CWST (pronounced "quest"). A natural evolution, the brand is a little more grown up with a focus on fit and American-made quality. "A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into Riviera Club and it was definitely a challenge letting it go," says co-founder Derek Buse. "But the best part has been the idea of going back to the drawing board." What are some of Buse's favorites for spring? "The linen styles—linen's gotten a bad rap as a fabric that old leathered dudes in St. Tropez wear," he says. "In reality, and done correctly, it's a fabric that more guys should consider putting into rotation this spring/summer."
