The Brooklynites behind Ovadia & Sons via GQ
Every year, GQ hands out awards for the Best New Menswear Designers in the country. This year's crop has a decidedly New York focus. Both BLK DNM and Saturdays maintain stores downtown—actually, within a few blocks of each other. The twin brothers behind Ovadia & Sons grew up in Brooklyn. And the other winners—Ian Velardi, Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, and Todd Snyder—all have local connections. Head to GQ for details on all the winners, and keep an eye out for their limited-edition collection with the Gap, coming soon.
