Ad campaigns for the brand have featured such legendary Rock icons as Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Velvet Revolver and most recently, Paul Weller & Miles Kane. The collection is currently distributed in all freestanding John Varvatos boutiques including the 315 Bowery boutique in the space that formerly housed the seminal underground music club CBGB.
