The homie Michael from the Washington Lobbyist shot this at The Streets of Georgetown launch party. Joseph Abboud the owner of the streets was also there in full effect rocking all grey everything. When asked which one was Joseph I was told "The dude who looks like his is worth $40,000,000 " Overall I had a great time and look forward to checking in each season with their latest collection. If you are in DC and can swing by Georgetown, you should definitely hit this place up. It’s a cool experience.
'The retail space showcases HMX Group men's wear brands under one roof including; Hickey Freeman, Hart Schaffner Marx, Bobby Jones, Coppley, Reid & Taylor, and Palm Beach. The stores will allow HMX Group to highlight the seasonal collections of each brand, while also providing made-to-measure services and regionally-targeted product specific to Washington, D.C.”
This new look Joseph Abboud is interesting to say the least. I think because their value “JOE” line has been pushed so heavily over the last few years and their stuff was popping up TJ Maxx’s and Burlington Coat Factories, the bloggers of my generation (the true 80’s babies) lost out on the fact that Joseph Abboud was in the same conversation as Ralph Lauren or Hickey Freeman when guys talked about great American suiting brands. I’m withholding judgement on this collection, however, until I get some more information other than it can be copped in like Nordstrom.

AdistinctiveTaste “For me it has never been that they sold in TJ Max or Burlington. I would be very pleased when I saw them until they didn’t have my size or cut. Part of the issue is that a lot of brands hurt themselves by not evolving to today’s cut preferences, to attract new customers. This has been the case with many American Brands outside of the aforementioned. I would like to see a Renaissance of American brands actually spending more time on the quality of American made clothes, while still evolving their style’s and cuts.
