Buckler by Andrew Buckler is set to open in the old Jexy location at 1312 Abbot Kinney.
Started in 2001 as a men’s jean line, Buckler is now a full men’s line with jackets, suits, shoes and accessories.
From Buckler’s website:
Buckler is a menswear line which melds the roguish American icon with a Brit edge. Designer Andrew Buckler disregards the universal monotony which plagues menswear, evading uniformity by superimposing eccentric undertones with classic silhouettes.
Launched in 2001, Buckler has stayed true to its original aesthetic conception: English Bloke meets New York. The designs are tailored, versatile, masculine and sexy, brought to life with quality textiles from the U.S. and Italy. Buckler sells throughout the US, Canada & UK. On April 12th, 2005 Andrew made New York’s Meatpacking District the subterranean home for his first flagship store. Three more locations have opened their doors since:
93 Grand St. in New York’s SoHo
35 Artillery Lane in London
700 Queen St. West in Toronto
Developing as an international name, Buckler continues to be an innovative menswear company. Andrew is very hands-on with all aspects of design…simultaneously creating unique environments to display his collection. Andrew executes his vision: a brand of blokes.
Andrew Buckler graduated from Royal College of Art and is a member of the CFDA.
