  • INTELLIGENT DESIGN

    Our lives aren’t segmented. Our wardrobes shouldn’t be either. We design every piece to flow from AM to PM with ease. The recipe? Start with a beautiful silhouette, and let the details bring it to life.

  • LONG-LASTING FABRIC

    #realtalk: it’s annoying to buy clothes and see them pill, warp, or shrink. We want you to wear our stuff over and over, so we’ve worked really hard to create custom fabrics that won’t pill, lose shape, twist, or shrink. We work with a master Canadian mill to develop our own high-quality fabrics, and test them in a lab to make sure they hold up to 100’s of washes and wears.

  • PERFECT FIT

    It’s hard to find the right fit online — we’re making that easier. Most styles offer a flexible fit or adjustability feature to accommodate varying body types and minor weight fluctuations.

TESTED FOR REAL LIFE

A handful of testers wear our designs everywhere — to meetings, on trips, chasing kids, binging Netflix. Their feedback helps us refine and perfect each design, before it ever launches. We don’t stop until we’re sure you’ll love it.

USA MANUFACTURING

USA-made matters. We work with garment factories in Denver and Los Angeles to produce 100% of our apparel. 

SMART PACKAGING

It’s all 100% recyclable. Paper mailers are manufactured in the USA, printed in Longmont, CO, and made with 100% recycled content. Our clear poly bags are also made in the USA with 100% recycled content. Hangtags are printed using soy and low VOC inks in San Francisco, CA.

 

 

 

 

OUR TWO CENTS ON SUSTAINABILITY

We believe longevity is the best metric of sustainability. Hands down. After a collective 18 years in the industry (working with a variety of sustainable fabrics from organic cotton to hemp to recycled poly) we asked — if the clothes don’t last, are they really sustainable?

After many conversations with industry experts, professors, textile manufacturers, and customers, we’ve decided to laser-focus on prolonging the lifecycle of a garment and improving its wearability — which sometimes means using synthetic fibers or fiber blends. We are deeply committed to local garment manufacturing, producing all of our pieces in Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA.

The most sustainable solution in fashion is not to buy anything new, and we encourage you to buy only what you need.
