Thom Browne, who opened his business as a custom suit maker in 2001, has been one of the most influential designers in American menswear. Mr. Browne was named CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year in March 2006 and named the GQ Designer of the Year in November 2008. A Thom Browne suit is distinctive in structure and fit. The suits are composed of flat front pants with exposed ankles and a jacket that concludes mid-wrist and doesn’t cover the backside. They have two buttons, narrow lapels, side vents, and trouser without belt loops. Since its debut in 2001, the Thom Browne collection has extended into a more complete menswear line with dress shirts, sweaters, ties, underwear, and accessories.
