The Gap x GQ collections are a constant source for getting your favorite designers typically expensive goods on the cheap. Past collections have included designers like John Elliott + Co. and En Noir producing their luxe fair for the masses in collections that have flown off the shelves. The previews for the new collection look to be the same: offering the type of clothing we love from these brands at lower pricepoints.
The preview from Stampd shows the athletic monochromatic layered aesthetic in-line with the Los Angeles brand's full collections. The look appears to be paired with Stampd x Puma's recent sneaker collaboration. "Gap is all about that classic Americana look—and then we wanted to give it our edge." Stampd designer Chris Stamp said about the collection to GQ.
The Hill-Side's preview s a casual suited up look that mixes a flannel button-down with a speckled grey jacket. Of course, the look is styled with one of The Hill-Side's signature pocket squares. "Quality materials are our hallmark," designer Emil Corsillo tells GQ. "So it wouldn't have made sense to come out with a Gap collection that's been taken down five notches. We nitpicked to find the quality we always look for."
GQ also previews the upcoming collections from the other two Best New Menswear designers, NSF and David Hart. NSF shows paint-splattered trousers, while David Hart goes for a preppier look with a knit polo and vibrantly colored cardigan.
