They debuted higher-end men's like Wallace & Barnes this year, as well as an equally solid collection at fashion week, attracting the likes of Beyoncé. In addition, they're one of Bing.com's top-searched fashion brands of the year (and the only "mall brand" on the list), and made themselves available internationally via sites like Mr. Porter.
