Ruggedly Handsome

Lacoste has its alligator, Ralph Lauren a polo pony and for Rodd & Gunn, the latest menswear brand to land on Greenwich Avenue, pieces are marked with an English pointer, the label’s official mascot. (Gunner, a real life version, made an appearance at the store’s opening night party). The new location is part of a larger U.S. expansion for the New Zealand-based company, in hopes of sharing its fresh take on men’s apparel and accessories.

“We’re trying to be thoughtful about where we open in the U.S. and find communities with a strong sense of identity that we think will embrace our New Zealand sensibilities,” says Mike Beagley, CEO. “Greenwich is not just picturesque but has a sense of style and presence, and we were immediately drawn to that. We hope to appeal to Greenwich men who appreciate a smart-casual approach to style that’s relaxed but still very much put together.”

Both the store’s offerings and the thoughtfully designed space reflect the heritage brand’s dedication to quality and craftsmanship.

Look for a mix of wearable and weatherproof updates on classics, inspired by native coastlines but made for city living. Rich Italian fabrics, high-quality knits and bespoke leather luggage also mark the offerings, all in a modern lodge setting that speaks to the larger sophisticated yet rustic aesthetic.
