  1. Thom Browne’s designs are ridiculous – rather hideous. Just weird

  2. I think his designs are kind of great. It’s exciting to see a designer bring new life to the rather boring world of menswear.

Thom Browne

Thom Browne began his career designing men’s bespoke clothing and expanded his line into a ready-to-wear collection in 2004. Browne’s style, rooted in a truly American sensibility and inspired by icons of the late 1950s and early 1960s, updates classic silhouettes with unexpected proportions. He was named the 2006 Menswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America; his work was included in Cooper-Hewitt’s 2006 National Design Triennial; and, that same year, he was a finalist in this category. In fall 2007, Browne launched a men’s and women’s collection for Brooks Brothers and a collection of men’s jewelry for Harry Winston.
