According to Yahoo, Designer John Varvatos is tentatively opening the new store in March. He once described his line's philosophy:
Our philosophy is about reaching back to move forward. We have something different to say with a sensibility that is both old and new. There's a vintageness and a modern edge to our clothes. We feel that the uniform is dead. Men are taking a more individualistic and personal approach to dressing. They are mixing dressy with casual, resulting in an eclectic look that suits their personality.
Varvatos is not entirely a stranger to the music scene CBGB spawned however, having used people like Iggy Pop (left) in campaigns.
CBGB closed a year ago this week after numerous problems with renting arrangements.
