A small-town store with a big-time mission:

To scour the world in search of
threads and tools that work every bit
as well as they look.

TOM RAMY

Craftsman. Man of Intrigue.

"What draws me to the threads at Brightwater, outside of the sheer quality, is the connection to an entrepreneurial spirit who see his store as more than just selling clothes.”

WING HO

Photographer. Creative Director.

“By purchasing well-made goods, we are not just preserving craftsmanship but preserving in the never-ending fight to put quality over quantity.”

ERIK EASTMAN

Mixologist. Ice Man.

“Brightwater isn’t a faceless franchise. It’s curated by a man who is well-known and loved in his community. That’s important to me.”

NICK ANDERSON

Esquire. Cigar Aficionado.

“Each piece curated by Brightwater showcases a timeless aesthetic (which I love) and is something that I will pass on to my kids.”

PAUL BUTTENHOFF

Professor. Instagram Icon.

“The pieces that I have from Brightwater fit into my life-long, continuously growing collection of timeless gear.”

MOLLY DUKE

Mountain Skier. Dog-mom.

“Brightwater is a place for me that harkens to another era — where the clothes are a reminder of something still good and lasting in this world.”
