Mr. McNairy has been quite busy as of late as the designer’s dished out a few collaborations and still manages to keep his own brand extremely relevant. His footwear offerings for Fall ’12 look exceptional and are offered up in a wide range of styles. We’re seeing brogue-style boots, tasseled loafers, saddle shoes and some monk straps as well. Some new textures are seen here as well including a denim shell while the uppers are complimented by crepe soles and even a few of the more vibrant variety. Look for the goods to be available through select stockists including LeftFoot. (via Streething)
Dazed Digital gives us shots from Mark McNairy’s S/S 2013 lookbook. The New Amsterdam collection for next year is looking quite promising as it blends some modern styling atop classic staples with which the New York designer’s name is synonymous. Here’s McNairy’s line of the year:
Formal tailoring has stuck around for a reason. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, but if you don’t have fun then you shouldn’t be fuckin’ doing it.
With that being said, the unconventional blend of fabrics and prints is like a breath of fresh air to a menswear spectrum that seems a bit too “by the book” at times. More imagery can be found below.
GQ has announced the creative geniuses up for this year’s Best New Designers in America Award. “In our sixth annual search for the future of menswear, as selected by editor-in-chief Jim Nelson, creative director Jim Moore, and GQ’s fashion team, we present the six designers you need to know.

Mark McNairy teams up with Atlanta-based retailer Standard for a trio of brogue boots. The first two are 7 eyelet and leather-soled. One features tan grain with red wool flannel while the other is brown grain paired with hunter green wool flannel. The third version is black grain with navy wool flannel. It also features 7 eyelets, waxed leather laces and a white Vibram Cristy sole.
All three are available in-store and online for $485.
It’s not everyday we get a behind the scenes look at one of our favorite brands. Mark McNairy’s New Amsterdam has seen a consistent growth over the past few years and is seen as one of America’s finest labels. Here we have a look at the making of the collection’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection. It showcases a wide range of shirts, jackets, footwear, and even gives us a look at the designer’s womenswear offerings. Author Hooman Majd and Daisy McNairy model the looks.
Mark McNairy presented Woolrich Woolen Mills‘ Fall/Winter 2012 collection in Milan today, pulling much inspiration frmo the designer’s southern heritage. The collection features references to the Civil War and Sergio Leone’s classic 1966 western film The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. McNairy digs deep into the Woolrich archives, reinventing a few patterns in new colorways with saturated blues and oranges or digital camos. New pieces to look for include contrast pocket cargo pants and workshirts, corduroy suiting, faux fur lined overcoats, LL Bean inspired plaid wool backpacks, and quilted nylon laptop cases. American-made to perfection, folks.
Mark McNairy does it again, this time teaming up with Canada’s HAVEN for a limited run of these Country Brogues. What’s not to like about them? They come in an extremely versatile navy suede upper that’s mated to a hand stitched Goodyear welt on a Natural crepe wedge sole. The contrasting white round laces and eyelets allow you to dress this down a bit but shouldn’t stop you from wearing them to your next semi-formal outing.
Inventory has teamed up once again with Mark McNairy, this time delivering the American designer’s plain toe derby boot in a timeless snuff suede leather finish. It’s a really versatile piece that will work all year round and features leather lining for added comfort. It’s an Inventory exclusive that utilizes the split Dainite sole with a leather insert.
We remember spotting this coat from WWM a few months back when the label’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection was unveiled. Mr. McNairy delivered an exceptional lineup and this one was definitely one of the standout pieces. It’s made in the USA and features a burgundy shell with navy stripes and toggle closure to top things off.
Mark McNairy’s New Amsterdam drops their Derby boot for F/W 2011 in a brown grain leather finish, designed by the man himself and produced in Northampton, England from high quality materials. The full leather cap toe and leather grain upper works well with the contrast woven laces, while the shoe’s full leather lining adds some much welcomed comfort.
