Barneys The Window: Band of Outsiders “Dress Shirting”
Following a look at New York-based leather label En Noir, the latest installment of Barneys‘ The Window takes a look at a completely different menswear aesthetic: that of designer Scott Sternberg and Band of Outsiders. Founded a decade ago, Band of Outsiders has evolved from a casual take on the timeless button-down to a contemporary, fresh, all-encompassing approach to classic prep. Here, Sternberg details the way in which the label’s shirts have evolved over the past 10 years – now made in Italy with expert tailoring and constructed using piece-washed Italian fabrics that are ultimately sewn together and then pressed, thus lending them a lived-in feel while retaining a more refined look. Sternberg also delves further into the world of prep, reflecting on its timeless appeal and how it dominates the realm of menswear and fashion today.
