These days it seems every other brand takes menswear staples like oxford shirts, jeans, and field jackets and "flips them" into something unique. As early as 2006, PegLeg was doing that. Designed by Harry McNally, Bobby Waltzer, and Nick Poe, PegLeg's collections often featured all-over print gear featuring things like roses, and colorblocked shirts and shorts that were ahead of their time. Now, that stuff pops up in just about every other line. They even got noticed by shops like Opening Ceremony, leading to an ill collaboration in 2010, and other collabos like a watch with GShock, and even a set of ties for United Arrows. We imagine if this brand got a second chance, it'd have no problem stunting on everyone else in the game. After all, they were the originator.
