Though it takes a lot of courage and can be kinda scary, breaking out to do one's own thing can pay off huge: just ask Richard Branson, as soon as he gets back from windsurfing on Jupiter with 200 Latvian models. Breakin' out to do dope men's gear solo, B:Scott.
After working for Nice Collective and heading up B.Son, SF State alum Brandon Scott's launching his very own line, B:Scott, with a relaxed collection of duds that "fuses Japanese and German aesthetics" (think Kobayashi in a Neumann's Famous Brat eating contest). The sweater action's probably the sweetest, from the heather grey, double-breasted cardigan with gloss black buttons and heavy ribbing 'round the waist; to the button-up thermal shawl with blazer-style hip pockets; to the drapey sweater-vest with a subtly raised "X" knit into the back, pretty much making you the Hester Prynne of looking X-quisite. The clean-lined jackets're a close second, exemplified by the Light Wool Plaid Mock Zip with its accentuated high collar, and a black n' squarish denim number with fleece trim and loose-fitting arms, because Brandon has "a problem with denim jackets being really tight in the arms"...oh, to have B:Scott's problems!
Because he's such a nice guy, Brandon's also blessed Tobi.com with a handful of dope exclusives, like the trench-ish Double Snap Mock jacket in black fleece, and a U-neck tee with an intricate, worm-like design printed all over -- wearing them could pay off huge, potentially even making you not a Virgin.
