While it isn’t quite a product collaboration, if this lookbook from Grungy Gentleman x Cole Haan is any indication of the pair’s chemistry, they should plan on working together much more in the future. Editor-in-Chief Jace Lipstein uses the brand’s clothing to cast its shoes in a raw, washed-out light that’s a sharp deviation from the brand’s recent imagery. We like the disparity.
The styling and location of the shoot alone are both excellent. Set in downtown NYC’s rugged Trinity Boxing Club, Lipstein catalogs the premium clothing and shoes adjacent to models that look like fared poorly in many rounds with Tyler Durden. As for the actual clothes, we’ll see chinos, stonewashed joggers, and other contemporary pieces from the Riding Crop this season; a saddle shoe profile headlines the footwear offerings.
The line is set to release today, March 12th, on the brand’s webstore.
