Lacoste has its alligator, Ralph Lauren a polo pony and for Rodd & Gunn, the latest menswear brand to land on Greenwich Avenue, pieces are marked with an English pointer, the label’s official mascot. (Gunner, a real life version, made an appearance at the store’s opening night party). The new location is part of a larger U.S. expansion for the New Zealand-based company, in hopes of sharing its fresh take on men’s apparel and accessories.
“We’re trying to be thoughtful about where we open in the U.S. and find communities with a strong sense of identity that we think will embrace our New Zealand sensibilities,” says Mike Beagley, CEO. “Greenwich is not just picturesque but has a sense of style and presence, and we were immediately drawn to that. We hope to appeal to Greenwich men who appreciate a smart-casual approach to style that’s relaxed but still very much put together.”
Look for a mix of wearable and weatherproof updates on classics, inspired by native coastlines but made for city living. Rich Italian fabrics, high-quality knits and bespoke leather luggage also mark the offerings, all in a modern lodge setting that speaks to the larger sophisticated yet rustic aesthetic.
