IN THE BEGINNING

Steven in i in 2007, at  snowboard shop in Salt Lake City we both for the first time we could remember feeling bummed on the low brow style of the snowboard clothing industry, our taste level was somewhere else entirely, desires for domestic manufacturing, and having a menswear focused design sense, these are some of the values that shaped our future venture.

WYNDAM NY.

This was my first day wearing outerwear that I had designed, patterned, graded, created a marker for, managed factory production, packaged and shipped. The fabrics are from Toyota, a high-quality japanese tech fabric mill that we continue to work with today. Every year since then, we have updated, and revised our block patterns to reflect our current mood.
