One of the latest lines out of New York, is Brooklyn Bandit Company. They’ve created a sophisticated, yet urban Spring 2010 Collection for men. The focus is combining street style and art in a jean, stemming from the brand’s New York roots. Fabrics were imported from around the world and months were spent to perfect every last detail, from fit to distressing.
The original idea for Brooklyn Bandit came from designer, Niket Pandya, who started purchasing apparel from the underground fashion movement in New York, then selling them to suburban dwellers in New York, New Jersey and the surrounding areas. After bringing awareness to the underground movement, Pandya decided to establish his own brand, which was released in April 2008.
The winter collection was released in November and can be purchased at Karmaloop.com. You can view the collection in the gallery below.
