Tommy Hilfiger and GQ Honor the Men of New York at the Tommy Hilfiger Fifth Avenue Flagship

NEW YORK--()--GQ and Tommy Hilfiger honored Aziz Ansari, Todd English, Peter Facinelli and Carl Hagelin at the Men of New York event at the Tommy Hilfiger Fifth Avenue Flagship on Thursday, November 29.

The event celebrates the contributions of some of the city’s most gifted artists, musicians, athletes, actors and entrepreneurs, and this year will raise money for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

New York is the iconic home of the Tommy Hilfiger brand, and the city where Tommy first started the company over 26 years ago. Tommy Hilfiger has always supported the inspiring talent and unique spirit of New York City through programs and partnerships with some of the city’s top businesses and non-profit organizations. The Men of New York event reflects the brand’s heritage of highlighting the achievements of influential people who make significant contributions to their communities.

With the impact of Hurricane Sandy being felt recently by so many New Yorkers, GQ and Tommy Hilfiger dedicated this year’s funds to the Mayor’s Fund. Tommy Hilfiger U.S.A., Inc. will donate 20% of sales from the evening to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City for Hurricane Relief.
