Big City Fashion – Men’s Division Trip to NYC – By Nicole O’Dell

The Glik Men’s Division traveled to New York this past June 2011 to finish up Holiday and preview Spring 2012.

We started our trip at the Levi showroom on Broadway.

Here khaki is important as well as denim.









Here is a sneak peak at some of our new Levi washes for Spring 12.










The Hand Me Down showroom offered an array of brands.

Here Jim Glik is ordering some super cool graphic tees.  Novelty tees are happening again!










Bench is a new brand coming this fall to Glik’s. It evolved in the Canadian Market and has now expanded to the United States.  We are buying some excellent fleece and jackets.










At the Affliction showroom we checked out the new Holiday styles.

Their American Customs line has great new bright bold motorcycle inspired styles.










What is trending in the Men’s Market?  Khaki Safari and Heritage Americana.

We have it all at Gliks!
