Oh, I do love John Varvatos. If you can believe it, I’ve actually spoiled my sons at an early age with some of his pieces. (I know. OVER-INDULGED.) However, I believe that’s how one achieves raising well-dressed MEN…and they are indeed.
Varvatos Fall 2012 Footwear Collection
We’ve discussed the fabulous Mr. Varvatos here before–a couple of times, in fact. I didn’t however, mention that his storefront in The Bowery in NYC was formerly the famously infamous and legendary club, CBGB. We were all pretty heartbroken when the club closed down several years back, but for John Varvatos to hold onto the rock ‘n roll roots and history of CBGB, it’s a perfect fit.
315 Bowery, New York, NY
The interior of the space which formerly was CBGB holds onto the framework and atmosphere of the venue with a club-ish vibe through rock ‘n roll collectibles and photographs that showcase each new Varvatos collection.
I’m really loving his new Fall 2012 Mens Footwear Collection. Just look at the photography! Also, the way his shoes look already broken in (and feel the same way, I’m sure) is phenomenal. Very John Paul White from The Civil Wars, don’t you think?

I’m a sucker for all things rock ‘n roll history related, AND all things Varvatos.
