Hollywood’s Men Step Out in Designer Menswear Line Joseph Abboud
The recently revamped collection has been frequently spotted on the red carpet in recent months.
A veteran fashion label has started luring Hollywood’s stylish male actors since undergoing a revamp last year.
True Blood’s Joe Manganiello has been spotted wearing a made-to-measure Abboud suit on more than ten occasions, Brothers and Sisters’ Dave Annable donned the designer twice in one week, Twilight’s Peter Facinelli recently sported a two-piece suit (he actually walked an Abboud runway show 15 years ago), and Jerry Ferrara looked sleek in a suit-and-shirt combo at the Entourage Season 8 Premiere.
The menswear line was created in 1986 by Lebanese American Joseph Abboud—the first designer to win the CFDA Award as Best Menswear Designer two years in a row. In mid 2010 Bernardo Rojo was appointed as the new creative director and is now leading all design.
The not-so-basic-black collection (think checks, plaids, stripes, paisley, bold colors) consists of designs to suit any leading male—their name can even be inscribed on the inside pocket for a personal touch.
Rojo—who previously worked at Armani, Perry Ellis and Michael Kors—describes the new collection as "a lifestyle menswear line…timeless pieces that men can wear throughout the years adding their personal style and trend pieces each season."
