Jace from Grungy Gentleman is an interesting guy. We’ve emailed back and forth over the past year or so, and he’s pretty darn talented.
He just designed a line for Dickies, and it’s super prep. I’m loving it. Totally wish I had a cute guy to buy everything for. (Aka, if you have a boyfriend… here’s the perfect gift guide.)
[CP Sidenote: I asked if guys read College Prep, and got tons of emails saying yes… SO, you’ll enjoy this!]
Here’s what Jace had to say about his collection in and interview with PaperMag.com.
“While I respect playful and think it’s a key component to keeping things both innovative and creative in our industry, Dickies spring ’12 is a very believable collection. There is a great amount of heritage within ‘the Dickies’ brand name. I did not want to stray completely away from the brand, I wanted to give my take on the line, while making it believable to the consumer and the brands aesthetic.”
Take a quick peek at the line:
1) I love elbow patches
2) Seersucker ones? Even better.
Such a fun twist on a classic. Love the unexpected pop of color!
