The first week of the summer sale at Mainline Menswear is nearly over and to help you find a bargain we have chosen a second brand to do a brand focus on. G-Star Raw is one of our biggest collections here at Mainline and there are over 200 of the Dutch firm’s items in the sale.
The raw denim specialists are famous for their modern techniques and urban style mixed with clear influence from vintage military uniforms. They have grown to have a presence in cities across the world from different time-zones, cultures and languages. Every one of them appreciates the originality of the G-Star Raw style and this has helped raise the popularity to the level it is at today. Despite being a lot younger than many other denim specialists such as Levi’s, Edwin, Replay and Armani Jeans to name a few, their rise to becoming one of fashion’s elite designers has seen them use dozens of celebrity ambassadors and open a number of impressive flagship stores.
The most impressive thing about G-Star raw is that they haven’t settled on their achievements with denim jeans, they have relentlessly pushed to develop more iconic designs and as a result they have an eclectic range from which consumers can choose from.
