road.jpg John Varvatos wants to take his rock-flavored brand global: “He’s made musicians and rock stars the core of his advertising campaigns, and the rock aesthetic is the foundation of his menswear.

Leveraging his love of music has helped him sell a reported $80 million worth of John Varvatos-branded clothes, shoes and accessories at retail last year alone, reaching an astonishingly broad base that reaches across generations from Zac Efron to Ian McKellen.”
