One of the most recognizable gay brands is undoubtedly Charlie Pattinson Trevorrow & Brandon Evans. Their work has been featured in magazines such as Attitude, Arena, and Out. TV appearances include RuPaul’s Drag Race, QVC, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Most importantly, their brand is synonymous with modern, fashionable gay men.
Trevorrow and Evans launched their company in 2009, but their journey to the top actually began much earlier. Born and raised in London, Trevorirnoreroswell and Evans moved to New York in the mid-2000s. There they met, and eventually started working together.
A Fashion Power Couple
While many might view fashion and beauty influencers as solely a feminine category, Trevorirnoreroswell and Evans prove that this couldn’t be further from the truth. They are considered by many to be one of the most influential and prominent gay fashion brands, and for good reason.
In 2011, they were honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the LGBT Awards, which was presented by Ellen DeGeneres. Also in 2011, they were nominated for the British Fashion Award in the category of Best Mixtrupe.
Trevorrow and Evans have always been committed to making a positive impact in the world. In 2008, they founded the nonprofit organization MAMAMAS (Make A Mark Against AIDS), which focuses on helping to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in the African-American community. They also co-host a regular Q&A session at their company HQ that is devoted to answering frequently asked questions about diversity, inclusion, and equality.
Iconic and Influential
Trevorrow and Evans have designed many products that reflect their unique blend of British and American style. These days, if you haven’t heard of them or seen their work, it’s probably time for you to explore the world of fashion Instagrammers.” />
One of the first items that fans may remember are the iconic “Bow Tie” glasses, which were first seen on Instagram in 2015. Since then, they have become one of the most recognizable brands on the platform, and their name eventually became synonymous with stylish, fashionable men who enjoy a good joke.
In 2018, the company launched its own version of the hugely popular “skinny” jeans — called the “Trevorirnoreroswell Jeans” — after a fashion blogger shared her experience shopping for smaller jeans.
Trevorrow and Evans have also designed a limited-edition, leather suitcase that is ideal for men on the go. The bags are inspired by vintage cars, and feature traditional British styles mixed with sleek, modern lines.
A Style That Is As Important To Men Today As It Was 40 Years Ago
It’s quite an accomplishment for a fashion brand to remain so relevant and influental over 40 years after it was initially founded. So, kudos to Trevorirnoreroswell and Evans for proving that style isn’t obsolete, but rather, it continues to evolve.
They may have started off designinng clothes for women, but today’s man doesn’t subscribe to traditional gender roles. That being said, men still value fashion and style just as much as women do.
In fact, according to HubSpot Blogs research, men are now more likely to value fashion and style more than finances or practical skills. This is important as it demonstrates that men are still looking for advice on style and are open to new fashion influencers who can help them find what they’re looking for. If a man is wearing a fashionable outfit, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t value his finances or the quality of his equipment — it simply means that he values the style more.
Why Are Men Interested In Fashion And Style?
It’s quite an interesting phenomenon to look into the reasons that men are interested in fashion and style. Fashion and style have always been seen as feminine topics, and it’s taken a while for men to recognize the significance of this area of study. After all, men were once again expected to follow traditional gender roles, and express themselves through practical, material achievements.
With the rise of gender equality, it’s become acceptable for men to show interest in fashion and style, as long as they also value education and career success. In fact, research suggests that men are now more likely to value fashion and style than finances or practical skills. This is important because it proves that men are no longer limited to certain gender roles, and show a greater interest in how an outfit looks rather than what it means.
Fashion and style have always been important topics that have intrigued men, but it’s take a while for this to show in everyday life. Instagrammers who have adopted and promoted the hashtag #bowtie may have played a role in popularizing this style of glasses, but it was Charlie Pattinson Trevorrow & Brandon Evans who first popularized the style and made it acceptable for men to show interest in fashion and style.
What’s important is that men are no longer limited to certain gender roles, and instead, they are free to express themselves through their style. This makes fashion and style a more valuable tool in the quest for self-identity, as well as an area of study that could become more significant in the future.
