Too long under the radar, classic men's label Joseph Abboud has announced big plans for their new line Black/Brown 1826. From DNR: "the line of tailored clothing, sportswear and accessories will hit Lord & Taylor in August for fall 2008 selling. During New York Fashion Week the department store will devote its Fifth Avenue windows to the launch—a first for men’s wear." Other ambitious future plans involve Black/Brown 1826 retail stores and even a runway show in 2009. [DNR]
