While serving as creative director of J. Press in 2008, Mark McNairy launched his own label, New Amsterdam, with a collection of handmade shoes. In 2010, he introduced a line of apparel and was acclaimed for his unique interpretation of men's wear classics. Be warned: step into McNairy's closet and you might step out covered in polka dots, smiley faces, or better yet, yellow rubber duckies. In any case, you'll step out with serious swagger.
"Most people in this business take themselves too seriously. I'm just having fun doing what I like to do. My clothes are fun but not funny."
