Levi’s + Gentry for Spring 2012

Iconic American brand Levi’s held it’s biannual editor preview day for its new Spring 2012 collection on Stage 37 in New York.

Gentry partnered up with the 130+ year old brand as the exclusive provider of ties, to help tell their new story of the refined and tailored man, which will become a prevalent part of the 2012 Levi’s collection.

One of our favorite stylists, Jenny Ricker, was recently seen giving advice on summer wardrobe basics for men. She cordially tossed our name in the round up:

“Summer is no time to be ho-hum — bright and cheery is the way to go. A neck scarf, pocket square or tie is the perfect way to add a splash of color without looking like a character out of Rainbow Brite.

Ricker suggests pastel or bright-colored linen ties. Her favorites are from Gentry. “It is reminiscent of that preppy, East Coast vibe,” said Ricker. “All guys can wear them. And it’s a great way to add a dash of color at night to get dressed up but still keep it very summery.” Ricker says this look works best with khakis and a linen shirt.”
