About rag & bone

From our origins in New York in 2002, rag & bone was founded on a belief of uncompromising ideals: a commitment to doing things the right way, not the easy way. To making things that are as original as they are timeless. To being true to ourselves, even when that truth sets us apart from the mainstream.

We still believe in the same principles we started with the easy elegance of classic British tailoring, the authenticity of American workwear, and the originality of our home city, New York. As New Yorkers, community and authenticity have become synonymous with our brand. An inclusive environment at rag & bone upholds our original values by encouraging employee connection and empowering each individual to have a voice on policy, process, and collaboration for a more equitable future.

Rules we live by | Rules you live by

Be a Good Human - Be original, be authentic. Stand for diversity, equitability & inclusivity.

Have No Fear - Innovate, solve problems

Own Every Decision - Work together, get results

Quality Matters - Not only with product but we see it in our people

Make Shit Happen - Be disciplined, be competitive
