And after reading yesterday’s trend piece/preemptive eulogy, we couldn’t help but think about how the good name of normal, hardworking Normans everywhere was being dragged through the mud all over again. So we’d like to take a moment to salute the most #normcore of them all:
Menswear can seem like an old boys’ club, between all the Ralphs, the Thoms, the Billys, the Hirokis and the like...
But that’s not always the case—in fact, there are a handful of menswear-savvy women at the helm of some of our favorite labels. And we think they deserve their due. So today we’re highlighting the women behind the menswear.
Every month, we thoroughly examine the contents of GQ, Details and Esquire, so you don’t have to. This month’s breakdown—starring Bryan Cranston, Porsche 911s, Aubrey Plaza, fathers-in-law, biceps, porn star names, overcoats, Jon Voight, holograms, absinthe summer cocktails and words of wisdom from Richard Simmons—is after the jump.
