It seems that each season, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen keep expanding their fashion empire, leaving Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham et al to play a game of constant catch-up. Elizabeth and James has denim, perfect peacoats and casual button-downs, eyewear, shoes, and jewelry, while the twin's higher-priced line, The Row offers up leather, fur, and a covetable collection of RTW and sunnies. Well now the pint-sized juggernauts are adding another feather to their cap with the continued growth of their menswear line— The Row menswear for spring '11 is now available on TheRow.com for the first time. The pieces take a cue from their women's counterparts, with a dark color palette and simple, minimalist silhouettes and fabrications. The t-shirts are reminiscent of Phillip Lim's guys tees that make up many a men's fashion editor's closet, though the leather pocket gives it an added punch, while the jackets channel Alex Wang and Rag & Bone. And that's obviously a good thing.
