Tom and Drew Boys – For Boys and Bulldogs
Introducing Tom and Drew Boys
We are very pleased to introduce a fresh new label from NYC: Tom and Drew Boys. Tom and Drew is named for, and inspired by the nephews of founder Alexia Panza. As we all know finding fashion forward style for boys that matches their personalities and needs can be something of a challenge.
Sharing our frustration, Alexia created Tom and Drew, providing a unique take on boy’s fashion that harkens to classic American style. Taking inspiration from elements such as the iconic Varsity jacket, the collection builds on wholesome looks while providing accents like bull-dog cufflinks, grandfatherly cardigans and selvedge denim.
We were able to get our hands on the lookbook for their new SS11 collection and all of the looks capture a unique identity, something distinctly American that hints at (or sometimes more than hints at) vintage style, but at the same time features a more contemporary cut and fit that makes it feel effortless and childlike in it’s nonchalance. Being a denim addict, the inclusion of high-end Japanese selvedge denim in this line is a particular source of excitement.
We are currently awaiting word on which online stockists you will be able rely on for your future Tom and Drew fix, and we will let you know just as soon as we hear. In the mean time we will leave you with their press release for SS11-
The ducklings are hatching, the bass are biting and the sharks are circling; it’s spring/summer time! Tom & Drew’s SS11 collection took inspiration from childhood memories spent on Cape Cod. You will find attire that is appropriate for every occasion; from lemonade stand sales to beach bonfires to summer camp swimming lessons to evenings spent with parents at the local Yacht Club.
For the SS11 collection, there will be three deliveries, each taking inspiration from different animals; ducks, striped bass and sharks.
Tom & Drew is excited to be one of the first children’s wear companies to introduce Japanese selvedge denim to the market. T&D’s denim is of the highest possible quality and has been imported from Osaka, Japan. The selvedge denim paired with appliqué pima cotton t-shirts, “slubby” jersey reversible hoodies and light weight “space dyed” knit sweaters make for perfect summer outfits.
Another notable category in the SS11 collection are the color changing t-shirts. The graphics of these incredibly soft shirts change color when the wearer comes in contact with UV rays.
A new term to the children’s wear market; Tom & Drew have created “suspenderalls” in denim and also Pima cotton jersey. Suspenderalls are pants that have attached suspenders, giving overalls a revamped, gentlemanly look. The denim suspenderalls have “hidden knee art” (embroidery underneath a reinforced layer of denim.) Phrases such as “play hard” will be seen when boys are on the playground and scuff up their pants.
