PARAJUMPERS

Parajumpers is a project deriving from the cooperation between Ape and designer Massimo Rossetti, who has many years of experience as a designer of outerwear, and also as an importer of American brands for the Italian market. A meeting with a serving member of the 210th Rescue Squadron in an ill-famed bar in Anchorage, Alaska provided inspiration for  Massimo Rossetti’s latest creation. The result is an extremely innovative outerwear collection with highly technological components, designed above all else to be functional.

The men of the 210th Rescue Squadron, based in Anchorage, Alaska, are highly trained for extreme rescues and recoveries in the wildest, most remote and hostile corners of the Globe. Whether it be ships adrift at sea, rock-climbers stuck atop a 4,000-meter peak, or submariners sunk at unimaginable depths, these men are called to intervene.

They are the PJs - short for PARAJUMPERS. Tough and courageous, they are better trained than any other military corps, but most important, they use their skills and techniques to save lives

RED WING SHOES

Excellence is a standard which transcends the test of time. For over a century Red Wing purpose-built footwear has been at the spearhead of innovation in the standard of excellence for work boots.

At the turn of the 20th century a shoe merchant named Charles Beckman in Red Wing, Minnesota saw a local necessity for shoes specifically designed for the demanding work of industries such as mining, logging and farming. The rigors of these jobs required footwear which was tough enough to outlast harsh working conditions, but Beckman envisioned a shoe that was also comfortable enough for the hardworking people who wore them. Beckman set out to develop work boots to fill this need and in 1905 he opened a company that would change the market. Beckman named his company Red Wing Shoes, and a new standard for excellence was born.

Over 110 years has passed since our founding and our commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear remains as unwavering as Beckman's vision. Our products consistently perform in environments spanning from the Mideast oil fields to the Midwest corn fields. Still headquartered in Red Wing, Minnesota, Red Wing boots protect workers in more than one hundred countries across the world, an accomplishment built by years of hard work, endurance, and the promise to never compromise on our quality.

BARBOUR

The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family owned business remains in the North East, with Barbour's headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields. Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jackets are still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside and each year over 100,000 jackets are processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations.

Nevertheless, in whichever area the company now operates, it remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British Countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.

STUTTERHEIM

Swedish melancholy at it’s driest. Stutterheim creates beautiful yet functional rainwear in the highest quality. All coats are handmade using the finest craftsmanship and are characterized by simplicity, functionality and timeless design.

Feeling blue inspires creativity. What if August Strindberg, Ingmar Bergman, Karin Boye and hundreds of other famous Swedish artists had felt happy all the time? Would they have produced their fantastic work? No. Being melancholic is an essential part of being a human being. If we try too hard to get rid of melancholy it’s almost like we’re settling for a half-life. To embrace melancholy is ultimately to embrace joy.

Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status quo, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content. Through our melancholy we come up with new ways of seeing the world and new ways of being in the world. Melancholy and creativity go together like ebony and ivory on a piano. 

Let’s embrace Swedish melancholy. 
Embracing rain is a good start.

Pulling vintage details from the wardrobes of icons like Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn, Loup combines a love of 1960’s Paris with a touch of modern ease.

Loup is available worldwide and is made in New York City.

From start to finish, we know every person involved in making our clothing in New York City, and we find peace in being small and transparent.

Try them and hopefully you’ll love them too!

BILLY REID

My story begins in Amite, Louisiana, a town whose names means friendship. There, my mother ran a ladies’ clothing store, located in my grandmother’s old farm house from the 1920s, with a huge front porch and a big bay window. It was a place where these women would come gossip and hang out and buy a bunch of really cool clothes. When you walked in there, it felt like home.

I design things I want to wear, and that fit into my life. I like the outdoors and getting my hands dirty. I like old-fashioned techniques and have a love of antiques. I am a Southerner and that certainly influences my life and work. I love the cornbread I grew up eating (and am happy to share my favorite recipe). You can often find me listening to the great songs recorded by Aretha Franklin, the Black Keys and more, Just down the road at FAME studios in Muscle Shoals.

I am traditionalist at heart. I start with classic American clothing, and take it in a modern direction… that still stays true to the traditional. I think through every button, every thread, every stitch. Some people on our team call it considered clothing for the modern soul. I just call it good clothing, made with integrity so you can look and feel your best, no matter when and where you wear it. My name is on everything we make, and I take pride in that. I hope you will, too.
