Robert Stock started his extensive career in fashion design, when he met fellow fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Together they launched Ralph Lauren’s highly successful Chaps collection. He then went out on his own and created Country Roads by Robert Stock and became an award-winning fashion designer receiving a Coty Award for “Best American Sportswear Designer” and a prestigious Cutty Sark Award for “Leading American Men’s wear Designer.”
In 2000, Stock felt bored and uninspired by the garments that made up the men’s wear industry. He noticed there was a void in the market and quickly began developing a line that spoke to a niche in luxury men’s wear that craved pops of color and interesting, conversation-provoking pieces.
In 2001, Stock launched Robert Graham — a line consisting of men’s sport shirts with a look he coined “American Eclectic.” That year, luxury specialty store Fred Segal was one of Robert Graham’s first customers. His shirts are truly fabulous!
