Headed for a pool party in the Hollywood Hills? Wondering what to don that summer 10 figure with? Well, look no further than upper-bourgeoisie label Argle Grant. Combining the best in Italian fabric and made in Los Angeles, Argle Grant is set apart by its attention to detail, gorgeous hardware and stunning fit. The range (exclusive to men) includes shorts, lycra, linen shirts and tank tops, as well as the popular and versatile Beach To Brunch short – which seamlessly transitions from the pool to a short you can enjoy all day. It is the label that you wear if you’re headed for a pool party or you’re off to Palm Springs, Hawaii or somewhere fabulous for a vacation. In fact, it’s so Hollywood that’s where the name came from – Argyle Street connects Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Blvd. While, Cary Grant was a famous Hollywood actor – combined they make Argyle Grant!
Argyle Grant was founded by Ryan Morgan and has in the past year had our very own favourite Hollywood entertainment reporter Dean McCarthy join its ranks to take the brand from strength to strength. Morgan was quick to see a gap in the market for chic, sophisticated but still sexy men’s swimwear to battle those baggy board shorts or skimpy Speedos. He asked himself ‘Where was the short that could be worn from pool party to brunch?’…. Alas Argle Grant was born.
Stocked not only in reputable chains such as the W Hotels, and the Ritz Carlton Hotels but also in their Palm Springs flagship store. The store, located at The River also stocks brands that mesh hand in hand with such sophistication including Tom Ford, Ray Ban, Prada, Herschel Supply Co., Johnathan Cardillo and Jack Black.
The powerhouse brand has gained even further exposure having showcased their threads at Miami, Beijing and LA Fashion Week. LA Fashion Week really propelled the brand with their runway show exposed to over 1,000 of LA’s best. Front row celebrity spots at the Beverly Hills Hotel included Melody Thornton from the Pussycat Dolls, some of the cast of Shahs Of Sunset and even Abby Lee Miller from Dance Moms!
