"The inspiration for our collection is a true modernization of classics. We reinterpreted silhouettes that have been heralded in menswear and added a youthful edge to the garments. By adding ribbing on sleeves, slanted accent elbow pads and unique fabric options we added a spin to the classics that we love. Our collection is extremely masculine. I categorize fashion into two categories, believable and playful. Although playful is the driving innovative force behind our industry and keeps things exciting, believable clothing is what sells. We make believable clothing that men can approach and visualize themselves in the product without much thought being put into it." - Jace Lipstein
