Mark McNairy started designing women’s sportswear for the label Finis in the late eighties, then moved on to create menswear for 68 & Brothers in the nineties. His preppy sensibility — a byproduct of his North Carolina upbringing — incited the interest of the traditional Ivy League brand J. Press, which named him creative director in 2005 in an attempt to attract a more youthful clientele. McNairy collaborated with Engineered Garments for spring 2009 and 2010, designing capsule collections of his signature English-made shoes. Since its launch, the New Amsterdam label has focused on footwear — including brogues, boots, loafers, and bucks — but he’s expanding into pants, shirts, and ties for spring.
