20 years ago the famed suit brand Thom Browne opened its door in New York City. The made-to-measure suit brand, named after its designer, began with five suit designs in the West Village neighborhood of the Manhattan borough.
Over the years, Thom Browne made a name for having quality craftsmanship, precise tailoring, and grey suits that acted as a disruption to the standard New York City black suit. Donning stripes for aesthetic value only, this became the calling card of a fashion brand known for its severity.
Fast forward and the illustrious brand has expanded to ready-to-wear attire, accessories, and fragrances for adults and children of all genders. Now it’s celebrating two decades of suiting up celebrities, socialites, and the ultra-wealthy.
So in celebration of two decades of suit excellence, the eponymous designers hosted exquisite dinners across the globe, from Tokyo to Milan. Fans of the brand came to support Browne’s achievement, but when it came to New York, dinner meant celebrating with some of Hollywood’s brightest.
“I feel like this is my family, that has seen me through the last 20 years,” said Browne.
And what a stylish family to be a part of. Everyone from actors Jenna Ortega, Lee Pace, Chase Sui Wonders, Real Housewives franchise member Jenna Lyons, models Sora Choi and Reign Judge, singer King Princess, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris to name a few.
This comes three weeks after the brand celebrated its 20th anniversary with a “Night at the Museum” ad with Maisie Williams, Aaron Pierre, Dan Levy, and Janet Jackson.
But why stop there? These folks came out to support the brand in an ad at The Grill in New York City wearing nothing, but head-to-toe Thom Browne to commemorate two decades of keeping people stylish.
With Ortega, Pace, Wonders, Lyons, and Harris, joining actors Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Evan Mock, and David Harbour, there’s plenty of star power on-screen. Check out the star-studded ad below.
