Robert Stock, the Man Behind Robert Graham Designs
It was during the early 1980s that fashion designer Robert Stock realized that he had the same passion for elegant British style that his father did; and that he wanted to begin creating his own designs. Along the way he worked with some of the greatest names in luxury mens clothing to eventually create his design as we know it today.
When Stock first struck out on his own, he met famed fashion designer Ralph Lauren; and both being from New York, the two quickly struck up a friendship. That friendship soon blossomed into a natural creative partnership, and Stock was a huge part of the Chaps collection put out by Lauren. Still, feeling as though he still had so much of a personal stamp to leave, Stock soon broke away from the Ralph Lauren name and set off to create Stock created by Country Roads by Robert Stock. It was under this name that he earned two of the prestigious Cutty Sark Awards.
Stock was content with his creation, until the year 2000 when again, he felt that he needed a bigger challenge. It was presented to him when he noticed how tired American style had become, and he knew just the way to start injecting color and vibrancy back into it. It was with this vision and this passion that he created Robert Graham designs.
His collections started as the best mens sportswear you can find in the fashion industry, and has evolved to include everything from polo shirts to dress trousers, and it includes a women’s line, too.
When you need to know that you’re wearing a piece that was made from true passion, wearing a design made from Robert Stock is a great way to do it.
