GQ America, headed up by dapper and slightly boyish looking Jim Nelson, is in search of the best menswear designer in the USA and two of the finalists are fantastic LA based labels. Warriors of Radness, who are based in Los Angeles, and Riviera Club, hailing from Santa Monica, are up against not only each other but four labels from New York.
All six will be featured in March’s issue of the magazine and showcase their autumn winter 2011 collections at a New York event on February 10th. Whilst the winner will take home a $50,000 (£35,000) prize – not bad eh? I think both collections are really strong, not too serious though I hope Riviera Club takes the prize for Team LA.
