"My uniform: grey suit, white shirt, grey tie and tie bar, grey cardigan and black wingtips."
- Thom Browne
Thom Browne grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the middle child of seven in an Irish Catholic family. After flirting with athleticism and acting, Browne moved to New York in 1997 and took on a wholesale position at Giorgio Armani. Shortly afterwards he moved on to Club Monaco, where he designed slim trousers, cardigans and oxford shirts. He led the Club Monaco design department for several years before launching his own eponymous label in 2001.
