Coming Soon

Spring – Brides-to-be add a new “must have” to their list when Black by Vera Wang debuts. The more affordable (ie $219 for a full look) line of rental tuxes will be available at Men’s Wearhouse. FYI Hawaii’s first location at Ward Centers is slated to open around the same time.
September – New York Fashion Week devotees may get the blues when Levi’s launches its first ever runway show. All the company says is that it will be “interactive”. Oh, and there’ll probably be some men in denim.
