Today I’m excited to share with you a few pieces from Chapter 2 of the Kith Blue Label line. Part of this shoot we did with Justin Doss, the Fashion Editor over at GQ. Justin’s been working in fashion forever and like me he came from sales where he started at Sid Mashburn in Atlanta by working with customers one on one. With his experience, he then started working at Barneys as a buyer and helped on the Private Label collection. Today, Justin has his finger on the pulse in a way that no one else has. I consider Justin one of the best-dressed guys in New York by the way he wears pieces in ways that are different from what you would imagine. That is what fashion is all about: using garments to express your own point of view. In the meantime, stay tuned for more release information for Chapter 2 coming later this week.

Justin is wearing the Bedford Oxford in Herringbone, the Mercer Pant in Navy, and RF X New Balance 1300 “Salmon Sole.”
