STRIVER’S ROW: UNITED WE BARGAIN, DIVIDED WE BEG . . . Powerful words from a brand that we at The Brooklyn Circus believe has the ability, executive experience and genuine love of culture, to last the last the test of time. In our opinion, we stand by it and say that “Striver’s Row is true lifestyle”.
Life is in the details. Style accordingly. Striver’s Row is a rare men’s lifestyle brand that breathes life into fashion by studying the past. “Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction”. Sharecropping during the 20th century repeatedly impacted fashion, utility , and the American status quo. The irreverent spirit of Striver’s Row is unfettered and continues to follow their muses- Bill Mathis and Al Murphy, these men answered to no one, yet inspired everyone. In the midst of the collapse of the global economy, Striver’s Row lifestyle brand draws inspiration from the 1920s and 1930s choosing not to listen to the conventional wisdom encouraging them to follow the pack and lower quality to reduce price points. No longer mere “designers” of men’s wear, they are now the “curators” of the best historical design.
In 2009, Striver’s Row launched their flagship boutique in Atlanta, Georgia. Like their men’s lifestyle brand, the boutique exudes timeless sophistication coupled with classic Americana refinement and cutting edge style. The location offers the complete opulent Striver’s Row experience. www.striversrowusa.com Stay tuned for the launch of Striver’s Row at The Brooklyn Circus worldwide.
