Designer John Varvatos rock-influenced clothing

The appeal of Varvatos' rock-flavored clothing reaches across generations, from Zac Efron to Ian McKellen. Varvatos likes to play with genres, melding rock riffs with military, bohemian or Edwardian-dandy styles. He often works in wools, cottons and leathers.
