Facebook group for Robert Graham Clothing Collectors celebrates RG’s extraordinarily precise workmanship and spectacular designs
FORT WORTH, TX, July 10, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Not everyone knows the name “Robert Graham,” but for aficionados of the company’s unique fashion offerings, Robert Graham Clothing Collectors Facebook Group, the mere mention of the name evokes images of bold splashes of color carefully coordinated with vivid, eye-catching patterns.
Readily recognizable by collectors, the popular designer line of attire features meticulously matched prints, including flamboyant florals, picturesque paisleys, and gorgeous geometric shapes and lines.
Combining prints is not for the faint of heart, and not everyone gets it right. Fear not; Robert Graham has mastered it, unquestioningly. One of the hallmarks of the clothing line is its impressive punctiliousness, both obvious and hidden. In fact, the brand’s one-of-a-kind, miniscule attributes have become as identifiable as the overt outward patterns. For shirts, this includes embroidered yokes, sparkling Swarovski crystal or hand-painted shell buttons, along with embellished yokes, specialized embroidery on the inside of cuffs, under collars and along the placket. Every garment contains either a printed or embroidered version of the company motto, “Knowledge, Wisdom, Truth.”
At its inception in 2001, the Robert Graham line focused solely on men’s shirts, and now offers men’s sport shirts and coats, denim, outerwear, loungewear, footwear, accessories and leather items. Today, Robert Graham designs aren’t just for men. In 2005, the designer expanded its line to feature women’s garments, including silk shirts and scarves, dresses, pants and jackets. Robert Graham offers a fine selection of women’s attire that includes dresses, blouses, jackets and bottoms. The Gracie Halter Dress, a v-neck, halter-style frock of viscose and silk with a brightly colored, whimsical paisley print, is sure to be the hit of any summer gathering.
When you visit a Robert Graham store, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Photographs can suffice in a pinch, but they simply can’t capture the incredible attention to detail in every garment. For example, the intricate embroidery takes your breath away. It’s rare to find such a high level of meticulous precision in embroidery, and you’ll spot it in nearly every article of Robert Graham clothing. The designer devotes a remarkable amount of time to hand embroidery, with as many as 2500 stitches decorating the front of an embroidered sport shirt.
The designer creates a “small and finite number” of limited edition pieces, and each one is unique to Robert Graham. They’re all numbered, just like artwork, which is why Robert Graham is famous for what it calls “wearable art.” The manufacturer’s announcement of a new line is pure manna for the fashion-following connoisseurs of Robert Graham collectable clothing. One of the newest Robert Graham offerings for men is the Limited Edition “The Iris Short-Sleeve Button-Down Shirt.” Crafted of 100-percent, top-quality cotton, the shirt features a full-button front, point collar, detailed embroidery and paisley/floral overprint.
As noted, the Robert Graham line is renowned for its remarkable attention to detail. It’s easy to hop online and visit the Robert Graham website to ogle the offerings, but to truly understand the fanatical fascination with the fashion line, you truly must experience it in person. Check out the store locator to find a Robert Graham retailer near you, and you’ll see why members of the Robert Graham Clothing Collectors Facebook Group are not just fans; they’re dyed-in-the-wool devotees.
