Tastemaker: Grungy Gentleman

Millennials are the most wine-obsessed generation since, well, ever. And wineries are listening—they’re ditching the stuffy labels with sketchings of Chateau Nowhere in favor of avant-garde packaging, like the fine art of Orin Swift’s bottles or the flavor palettes of Uproot Wines. The line between fine wine and trendy wine is blurred, with demands for both great taste and low price in equal measure.

Demanding the very same from couture menswear—accessibility, the avant-garde, and above all, quality—is Grungy Gentleman, the brainchild of fashion designer and CEO Jace Lipstein. He brings couture fashion sense to the sportswear and casual clothing every guy needs, pairing streetwear with unprecedented style.

Check out the full debut line right here from the first night of Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week. The line features our brand new collaboration with legendary sports brand Mitchell and Ness including a varsity jacket, baseball hat, snapback, and black graphic tee. You can get your hands on those pieces here. The collab embodies our line’s athletic approach to fine men’s tailoring.

Of course, the collection is also complete with Grungy Gentleman’s signature Cotton Citizen quilted sweats, always available in the Grungy shop to be rocked any time, day or night. Meeting with like minds—or in the case of Mitchell and Ness, a legendary brand—is what keeps our work in the industry fresh and at its peak.

When the best standards—be it great clothes or good wine—need to be elevated, it takes a tastemaker from our generation to do so.

EXPLORE: Domaine J.F. Mugnier Pinot Noir, one among the rare Burgundy wines. Its rich color matches perfectly with the burgundy across our newest line. Stellar.
