Londoner-turned-New Yorker, Simon Spurr, started men’s clothing brand SPURR three years ago. Spurr, former designer for Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren’s esteemed Black and Purple labels, has created a high-end brand which is a fast rising star. With timeless design, and notably durable materials, it’s no wonder SPURR can regularly be found on the pages on GQ.

Simon Spurr and SPURR alike have a strong relationship with Los Angeles. “LA is becoming a very, very important city for me and my company,” Spurr said in a recent chat with LAist. Aside from being found locally at popular retailers Barney’s, Confederacy and American Rag, SPURR’s denim is manufactured here as well. “The denim’s made in one of the better factories in LA. They do a beautiful product.”

LAist recently had a chance to chat with Simon about SPURR, LA style and what the LA guy can do to dress a little better.
