Converse

(From the company website.)

Converse is Sneakers. And Converse is Change. We started on the court and got adopted on the street. We began as a rubber company, transitioned to sneakers and boots, and then we found basketball and reinvented the sport. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker became the court sneaker; it stood for the game. From there we moved into other sports with new sneaker silhouettes like the Pro Leather, the Star Player, and the Weapon. The Star Chevron showed up and became another Converse symbol. And just when we seemed to be destined for athletes only – something happened.

Converse sneakers showed up in rock clubs, on the streets, on rappers, on icons, on rebels and originals. It became the sneaker of choice for individuals. From All Star to Jack Purcell to CONS, Converse doesn’t confine itself to one style or definition. Be who you want to be in Converse sneakers or clothes. An artist, rebel, rapper, thinker, gamer, skater, smoke jumper, freelance dentist, whatever. If you’re wearing Converse, you know who you are.

Esemplare

From the company's website...

"In an era marked by the standardisation of production processes, “quality” is not a term to be used lightly: it has to do with values such as tradition, handcraftsmanship, respect and an eye for detail. These have become rare values today, but that is precisely why they are a vital part of what makes a garment truly “exemplary”.

With this approach to production, which focuses above all on quality, the revival of tradition goes through state-of-the-art technology and emerges all that much stronger, more up to date and better able to face changing times naturally. THAT’S WHY EVERY CREATION BEARING THE “ESEMPLARE″ LABEL BOASTS SIMPLE BUT SOPHISTICATED LINES, choice materials and exquisitely crafted finishes. Most importantly, however, it reflects the passion of the people who made it.

Esemplare was inspired by the desire to forge a new road in fashion,  devoted to those who, day after day, travel countless roads physically and mentally, but always in utter freedom.It is this sense of freedom that has inspired the collection: those who dress Esemplare do it artlessly, considering it so much a part of their identity that it almost becomes second nature. As a result, NO TWO GARMENTS ARE TRULY ALIKE, BECAUSE THEY ACQUIRE THE PERSONALITY OF THOSE WHO WEAR THEM. They become something new each time, bearing an ever-changing message."

Filson

Born in 1850, C. C. Filson inherited his father's pioneer spirit and love of the outdoors. After homesteading in Nebraska and roaming the country as a railroad conductor, he moved to the small city of Seattle, Washington in the 1890's.

Filson's timing couldn't have been better. By 1897, the Great Klondike Gold Rush was on, and thousands of fortune hunters were stampeding into Seattle, headed north. Armed with a strong work ethic, a reputation for honesty, and several years' experience operating a small loggers' outfitting store, C. C. Filson was ready to stake his claim to fame.

Filson continued to make his goods from the best materials obtainable, and guaranteed every piece of merchandise. If he didn't stock an item a customer needed, he custom-made it for him. Filson's name became synonymous with reliability, satisfaction and honest values. By the 1960s, Filson' reputation as the premier outfitter for outdoorsmen had spread around the globe. In addition to being stocked by retailers of quality outdoor wear, Filson garments were being ordered by mail from places as far away as Greenland.

"The goods we quote must not be confounded with the cheap and vastly inferior grade with which the market is over-run. Such goods are not only useless for the purpose for which they are intended, but the person wearing them would be better off without them."

-- Clinton C. Filson 1914 catalog

Herschel Supply Co.

From the company website.

"The story of Herschel begins in the early 1900’s, in Wick, Scotland. Peter Alexander Cormack, a barrel maker by trade, and his wife Annie packed the belongings of their small home in preparation for the long journey across the Atlantic to Canada. The government of the time was enticing families to immigrate through the homestead program. They gave these families land to farm, to support the growth of the country. The land that Peter and Annie were given saw them settle in the beautiful rolling hills outside of the town of Herschel, whose population today is counted at 30 residents.

Over a century after that move, Peter and Annie’s great grandchildren remain in the business of manufacturing. Instead of barrels, backpacks and bags are now created. Herschel Supply Co. was started with the goal of bringing well-designed quality built product to market. Inspiration is drawn from vintage mountaineering, American heritage, world travel and fashion. Herschel reinvents these products with modern shapes, fits and feels, with fine regard for detail.

Monitaly

Every stitch has a soul. 

Created in 1997 by Yuki Matsuda of Yuketen fame, Monitaly takes its name from three of Yuki's biggest loves: his daughter Monica, Italy and the military.  The result of this inspiration is beautifully constructed pieces that pay homage to a bygone era of craft and clothing.  Full of soul and with a distinctive heritage feel, vintage shapes are updated with modern day silhouettes and a sense of the great American outdoors that permeates Monitaly collections.

With very limited production and Monitaly signatures such as the use of vintage military buttons, Monitaly is highly revered by those who look for silent exclusivity in the clothes that they wear as well as the longevity that arises from quality and timeless design.

Nanamica

House of the seven seas

This is the meaning of Nanamica -- many oceans that actually form up into one, linking the entire world together. The philosophy is about uniting interesting things, created by people from different places and cultural backgrounds, not bound to any particular nationality or belief, yet aiming at achieving something which in time will become part of our daily lives, free from the obsession for trends or the latest fads. Timeless and spaceless items which can be worn all life long; function is their only common denominator. The technical seams, the details and the sophistication of cutting-edge materials make these pieces of clothing reliable and durable, the perfect choice also for collaborations with some of the top sports brands.

Needles

Needles is the creation of Keizo Shimizu, owner and director of Japanese fashion umbrella company- Nepenthes. Initially a fashion distribution firm started in 1988, Nepenthes expanded to retail operations in Aoyama (1989) and established US offices in Boston (1989) and New York (1996). He became discontent with what was not available in the market. This vision led to the establishment of Engineered Garments (designed by Daiki Suzuki), and Keizo’s own designs in Needles, South2 West8, and Sonic Labs.

Drawing from historical magazines, past experiences and travels; Needles is Shimizu’s personal viewpoint on what garments should be, resulting in a bohemian/west-coast centric inspired direction. Built through the strong network and accumulated operations of the parent company, Needles is produced with no compromises, fully representing the aesthetics of Keizo and the creative source of Nepenthes. The Rebuild by Needles project is an extension of Shimizu’s unique aesthetic and presents an innovative interpretation of repurposed vintage. Deconstructing mostly American military garments, the collection is assembled in Japan, reworking pre-owned garments into original new pieces, transforming the deadstock into the avant-garde.

New Balance

New Balance began as a Boston-based arch support company in the early 1900's, developed into a specialized shoe manufacturer in the 1970's, and has grown to become a leading global athletic products company. Today New Balance boasts a family of other brands in its portfolio, including Dunham, PF Flyers, Aravon, Warrior and Brine. Since the days when the founder, William Riley, and his partner, Arthur Hall, began selling shoes and arch supports to police officers, waiters and other workers forced to spend great part of the day on their feet, New Balance has focused on understanding and satisfying the needs of its customers.

The philosophy "Endorsed by no one" derives precisely from this mission and it highlights that a superior quality product sells much more due to its technical qualities and characteristics rather than due to a sports celebrity who is paid to wear it. This was a choice New Balance made in the '90s and never regretted. Part of producing superior footwear and athletic apparel is manufacturing it to fit all widths and sizes, because a better fit produces better performance. To ensure the best fitting, best performing shoes and apparel, NB has always focused on improving our technology and production methods.

The brand has maintained five manufacturing facilities in the USA and the English facility Flimby (UK), which the brand opened in the '80s to combine "Research & Development" with "Production", relying on the highest production standards and testing and intervening on the products in real time. For over 100 years New Balance has continued to manufacture high quality athletic footwear, whilst remaining faithful to a core set of company values that include integrity, teamwork and total customer satisfaction.

This is New Balance; a company that does not want to become the number one sports brand in the world, but rather the best.

Parabellum

(From the company website.)

We grew up obsessing about and refurbishing antique and vintage luxury items in the basement of our father's antique shop on Western Avenue in Hollywood. We learned from our grandfather, who made custom men's suits by hand in the back of his Haberdashery on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. We have watched, with disdain, as small runs have become mass-production, as domestic artisan craftsmanship morphed into an outsourcing free-for-all, as style went from true to garish, and as quality gradually ceased to be discussed.

We remember when luxury goods grew richer and more luxurious with time and use, and when spending extra for something special meant you were buying something that would last forever. Instead of watching things go in the wrong direction, we are helping them come back to truth.

Property of...

History:

Property of... is a collection of men's bags & accessories that was launched in Autumn 2006 by cafe owners & design collaborators Peter Teo & Richard Chamberlain.

Branding:

The brand name 'Property of...' was crafted to refer to the identity of the product owner rather than to a designer. This is reinforced through our signature 'Identity Tag' labelling and further highlighted by 'Names & Faces' ID visuals.

Design Philosophy:

Whilst appreciating and being informed by the construction and function of classic men's bag and accessories, the Property of.. team endeavors to create its own design identity incorporating the best of old and new design values. Bags and small goods are formed to be practical and reliable whilst reflecting modern needs and use with pockets, details and hardware placed and sized accordingly.

Materials:

Our products are formed using traditional hard-wearing materials such as waxcloth & vegetable tanned leather which are used alongside contemporary coated tarpaulins and distressed canvas.

Team Locale:

The brand's small creative team is based from their design studio & workshop in Singapore.

Stone Island

From the company's website.

'A culture of research, experimentation, function and use are the matrixes that have always defined Stone Island: the sportswear brand established in 1982, designed to become a symbol of extreme research on fibres and textiles, applied to an innovative design. Season after season, it is through the study of form and the “manipulation” of the matter that Stone Island has found its own language with the aim of establishing new boundaries in the world of garment making.

The study of uniforms and of work wear, its evolution according to new requirements of use, has become Stone Island’s observation post for defining a project in which the clothing item’s function is never just aesthetic. An ongoing investigation, thorough and without frontiers, on the processing and ennobling of fibres and textiles, leading to discover materials and production techniques never used before in the clothing industry.

All the accumulated knowledge and experience, an inalienable heritage, on which great part of Stone Island’s know-how is based, is kept in the historical archive that collects the trial tests, and the recipes for textile dyeing and handling that have been developed by all those people who have worked on this project with passion.'

An investigation that involves materials, techniques, treatments, dyes besides the architecture of the garments. The exaltation of garment dyeing and garment over-dyeing. Accurate recipes for matching tones or to obtain the same identical shade of colour for garments in Mix Fabric. An investigation of Camouflage, with a pattern exploding in three different sizes, used alone or in combination within one garment and over-dyed to achieve specific hues.'

Tanner Goods

Utilizing the most premium leather and canvas sourced domestically in America, Tanner Goods produces hand-crafted goods with time tested tools and heritage techniques.

Tanner Goods is comprised of a small team of craftsmen who produce every piece by hand in their Portland, OR studios. They utilize the same tools that have been put to work for decades manufacturing heritage leather goods, and in many cases have sought out antique equipment that produce the best results. All of the sewing is done by a heritage saddle maker who started as an apprentice in the industry in 1964. For the past 45+ years, he has been honing his craft and has been generous enough to pass along his knowledge and skill to the rest of the Tanner Goods team.

Every piece Tanner manufactures is constructed from premium, domestically sourced material. The leather goods are cut from vegetable tanned English Bridle American leather, renowned for its ability to age beautifully and gain character over years of use. Traditionally used in saddlery and heritage leather goods, English Bridle leather gains color and marks of distinction like no other leather.

Known as the original skate shoe, Vans was founded on March 16, 1966 in the city of Anaheim, California when Paul Van Doren along with three partners opened up their first store. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactured shoes and sold them directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchased Vans deck shoes -- now famously known as the Authentic.

The classic skate brand dynamically grew throughout the 70's and 80's and has helped push the sport of skateboarding to conquer the world. Regarded for their originality and DIY ethos, Vans has since worked with a diverse array of artists, musicians, and independent brands including Taka Hayashi, Bad Brains, Ray Barbees, Pendleton and many more.

Woolrich Woolen Mills

From the company website.

"The Woolrich Woolen Mills collection is a project that stems from the passion of the rediscovery of the American manufacturing tradition, of which Woolrich still represents an actual icon; its' uniqueness is tied to the history and values of the Woolrich "working community", a town that rises and develops around the Mill's activities…

The collection revolves around garments that in their simplicity, have the entire American outerwear history in their structural details. It is from the Woolrich Mills that this product takes form from the same looms that produce the most authentic American outerwear fabrics.

The Woolrich Woolen Mills project originates from the desire to create unique items for their simplicity and authenticity, to give way to a different dress style that interprets the need of those who don't need to be noticed and so are attracted by the "silent exclusivity" of the clothes.

The renewal of the USA manufacturing tradition is set in the concept "garment with a purpose", made in USA or otherwise created with original fabrics, that unite the best industrial "standards" with assembled and functional details..."

Yuketen

Classic made in U.S.A. footwear and luggage are exceptional as traditional artifacts of the rugged and refined American past. Since 1985, designer Yuki Matsuda has paid homage to the American crafts and traditions by treasure hunting for outstanding examples of footwear and luggage in remote locales spread out across the rolling Appalachians to the high Sierras.

During Yuki’s quests for American rarities, he befriended several footwear, luggage, leather, and blanket artisans whose personalities and skills are more beautiful and pure than their output. Yuketen exists from the lessons and heritage gleaned from these men and women, our respected predecessors. 

Each Yuketen article begins with utmost thought and research and is constructed solely by aged hands of high-skill and years of experience. We chose only the most durable and precious raw materials such as our all-vegetable tanned leather, which is exclusive to Yuketen luggage products, or our American naked leather unique for it's heavy, thick, and soft characteristics. Yuketen products' finishing touches are made by the owner's individual insignias; the outline of their footprint, crease-marks from the bend of their ankle, imprints from their hands, color shed from their skin, mementos of their lifetime. 

We are proud of Yuketen footwear and luggage. May you enjoy the fruits of our labor wherever your journey takes you.
