Reflecting on our rich American heritage and legacy of the American worker, Labor Day, a national holiday since 1882, is a celebration of the American laborer, akin to the worldwide celebration of May Day. We can’t think of a better way to pay homage to the American worker than through the release of our Standard Issue: a series of utilitarian garments with a focus in fit and fabrication made in the USA. All garments are inspired from heritage essentials that have historically been the foundation of the American wardrobe.
Our introductory Standard Issue release is our Utility Chino. This chino is crafted 3 colors of an 8.5oz brushed cotton - creating a soft finish and impeccable durability to reassure a level of quality that will be passed down from generation to generation.
This weekend, we celebrated Labor Day amongst friends and family. The weekend was full of excitement with our youngest brother, Stenn, proposal to his long time girlfriend. We kept up with the Labor Day spirit with barbeques and surfing, but were forced back into our wetsuits, as the weather (and the water temperature) are signaling the end of the summer.
