From Corridor and Knickerbocker to Norse Projects and Story Mfg., these are the stylish brands that should be on your radar
The Brooklyn-based brand created by Peter Middleton offers a fresh take on traditional western wear. It has roots steeped in traditional cowboy gear — think soft-to-the-touch flannel shirts, thick shetland sweaters, knit vests and overcoats.
Lady White’s vintage-inspired shirts and sportswear are all made in California, and because it’s such a simple garment you better believe the brand has paid attention to the fabric and construction to create something that will last.
Their latest collection turns heritage styles on their head with a barrage of patchwork pants and knit blazers more rad than trad. Just between us, we think that they make the best zip polo around.
While some brands might throw around the term sustainability, Olderbrother takes it seriously. Their buttons are made from nuts, the labels are tree bark and even the packaging is biodegradable. The clothes are gender-neutral and fresh, too.
Founded in 2012 by Nicolas Gabard, Husbands Paris is on the record as suggesting that the main function of the suit is “sex appeal,” routinely pointing to the wild west of ‘70s tailoring on the likes of Mick Jagger and Bryan Ferry as the only proper source of inspiration for bespoke suits.
Pushing the loneliest sport to the farthest reaches of fashion, Satisfy combines its french sensibilities with aggravated performance technology. Good for putting in the miles, better for looking sick while doing so.
Story mfg.’s product manifesto (yes, they have a manifesto) reads like a sustainable fashion fanatic’s north star doctrine, with phrases like “patron of the arts” and “regenerative agriculture” roping together a series of promises and creeds around their sourcing, construction and retail processes.
Corridor has a laid-back style that fully comes alive when you get a chance to check out one of their crochet cardigans or thick flannel shirts. If you want to grab a cardigan or sweater that feels unique and one-of-a-kind, you won’t be disappointed.
Knickerbocker got its start inside of an industrial manufacturing space on the border of Ridgewood, Queens and Bushwick, Brooklyn, making garments for other brands before branching out and making their own collections.
The polos are boxy, the knitwear is thick but lightweight enough to play in, and the cotton poplin shirt is thin and breezy. If you love tennis or are falling down a similar rabbit hole as Hannson, then Palmes is going to be one of your new favorite brands.
Our goal here is simple: to help you live a more adventurous, eventful and engaging life.
