Our Story

We make modern classics with character. We believe in true timelessness, the integrity of well-made clothes, and since our inception, great quality at a great price. That’s in our DNA.

But, we know it’s not only about the clothes—it’s about the feeling it gives the people who wear them, whether they’re confidently giving a presentation in a well-tailored suit; basking in long salty beach days in vibrant, colorful sun-soaked swimsuits, or joyfully re-discovering their favorite Rollneck sweater in their closet again and again, season after season.

And ultimately, it’s about helping our customers be the best, most authentic versions of themselves.

And that’s what we’re after, to inspire people’s lives and style.

Whether you’re a customer or a part of our crew, we put people first. We’re proud to have been recognized as an industry leader in:

  • America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity (Newsweek, 2023)
  • America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women (Newsweek, 2023)
  • Best Employers for Diversity (Forbes, 2022)
