The second new brand is Knowledge Cotton Apparel. The story of Danish menswear brand KnowledgeCotton Apparel began in 1969, when Jørgen Mørup opened a small textile company in the city of Herning. Since the beginning, Jørgen Mørup focused on sustainable principles, and based on his early initiative, KnowledgeCotton Apparel was founded in 2008 by his son Mads Mørup and today, the company has grown into an accomplished international sustainable menswear brand.
Last but certainly not least is Velva Sheen. The historic jersey brand of choice among the US Marine Corps, the Ohio-based brand continues to produce the kind of timeless basics that no wardrobe can be without. Staying true to their American roots, each piece is manufactured within the USA to the same exacting standards that the label was founded on in 1932.
North Fall '16 is a collection of classic essentials all made in Los Angeles. The collection comprises of 4 timeless pieces:
Its a perfect broken in denim jacket based on a vintage type 3 but cleaned up and simplified. Followed by a classic CPO Shirt Jacket with an incredible dead stock fabric that once you touch it, you'll have to have it. Then we've got our chambray shirt, which we simplified so its a little less workwear and a little more versatile. You can wear it so many ways. And finally our chinos, which we worked hard on the fit of these pants. They've got a touch of a higher raise for comfort and then we really spent time on the taper of the leg and in my opinion we achieved a perfect fit for a chino. The great thing about the collection is you can literally wear all the pieces together; each compliments one another well and that was my intention.
