Brand Profile: Gorumet

Gourmet is a fairly new brand from LA. I don't really know a lot about them apart from that they're Italian and all three of the guys in charge worked for street wear brands before starting gourmet. They do shoes, Tees and jewelery.

This is what they say about their brand:

"Gourmet is a brand that truly defies categorization. Above All, cornerstones influences are Italian and Italian-American culture. From old World Italy and its grand tradition of men's wear tailoring with luxe fabrics and trends that have driven the fashion market, to Italians in the metropolitan enclaves across the USA at batting cages and local giglio feasts wearing sweatpants with an undeniable swagger; Gourmet is all of the above.

For Years, refined Italian and casual all-American men's looks have been imitated, rehashed, reworked and reinterpreted season after season but never before have the collided as they do in gourmet. This is a new, revolutionary, remixed laid back luxury inspired by Italian culture, food, religion and music. Gourmet is both high and low, style forward yet familiar, chic and Gauche. Each Piece - From footwear to apparel - Possesses an understated complexity that underlies gourmet's high concept DNA."
Prices range from 70-175 but totally worth it. I might get me the green high tops in a couple of months because i have a very long list of Sneakers that i need to buy.

More Pics after the Jump.
