First-of-Its-Kind Collaboration Pairs Top Men’s Magazine With Innovative Men’s Styling Service to Provide Essential Fall Fashion Style Pieces
Esquire, the original men’s magazine and the premier authority on men’s style for 80 years, in partnership with the men’s styling service Trunk Club, today launched The Esquire Collection, a limited-edition trunk featuring the seven essential clothing items for fall and beyond.
Carefully curated by Esquire’s editors in tandem with the Trunk Club team, the sartorial selection includes exclusive pieces from designers such as AG Jeans, Billy Reid, Bespoken, Barbour, Gant Rugger, L.B.M. 1911, and Vince. Guys signing up for The Esquire Collection at the Trunk Club website can build their own individual trunks, choosing from a selection of items including a dress shirt, casual shirt, vest, sweater, blazer, overcoat, and pair of pants. Designed to be worn together or separately, The Esquire Collection pieces “fit, feel, and flatter, just as a man’s clothes should.”
“We worked hand-in-hand with the team at Trunk Club to select the quintessential pieces for fall and beyond,” said Nick Sullivan, the magazine’s fashion director. “At Esquire, we are always seeking ways to help our readers live better, more informed and stylish lives. With The Esquire Collection, we’re taking the guesswork out of shopping and making sure they are, as Trunk Club says, the ‘best-dressed guy in the room’ this season.”
“Trunk Club and Esquire are perfectly matched when it comes to philosophy, aesthetic and sensibility,” said Brian Spaly, CEO of Trunk Club. “We’re thrilled to have them as our first magazine collaborator and know that our clients as well as their readers will love what we’ve hand-picked for inclusion in The Esquire Collection trunk.”
The Esquire Collection launched via the Trunk Club website on August 10, 2013. For more details on this offer please visit: www.trunkclub.com/esquire
