LRG Holiday 2015 – I don’t know if LRG will ever have their former glory, but for the last few seasons they’ve made some convincing points. It’s not loud hoodies and wild all-over prints for this Orange County brand any more. They employ some talented designers and the first delivery for Holiday 2015 is clean. Sharp lines and tonal colors saturate this first drop of essential T-shirts, hoodies, button-up shirts, and outerwear. Maybe LRG will never get to their former shine, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make solid clothes.
