About Mark McNairy: Currently, Mark McNairy is the creative director over at Woolrich Woolen Mills, churning out those fantastic Americana-influenced outerwear pieces we all love. Before this gig, McNairy worked as J.Press’ creative director. He’s additionally designed for Finis, Southwick, and 68 & Brothers.

About Mark McNairy’s Collection: McNairy’s clothes (and shoes for that matter) are classic pieces men have worn for years, but that have been transformed into something modern gents want to wear. Instead of oxfords, there’s oxfords with eye-popping, yellow-colored soles. Instead of khaki shorts, there’s zebra-printed shorts. Get the picture? This is a collection any man from any generation would want to throw on.
