Behind the Seams: Mike Ski of True Hand Society

Posted by Craig Schroeder on

Tattoos have long been a part of the DNA here at CMMP, and especially those tattoos from longtime friend of the brand, Mike Ski of True Hand Society. We've been collaborating with artists over the years to create custom linings so working with Mike was a natural collaboration for us to integrate his signature tattoo style into our garments. The new series of 6 linings feature his hand drawn icons that can be commissioned to line any suit, blazer or jacket.  CMMP: How did you get your start in tattooing? How did that passion turn your tattoo business into a full graphic...

The Kensington Car Club - New Hope Meet

Posted by Craig Schroeder on

The Kensington Car Club, created by our very own Aaron Pierce, is more than just a car club. It's not your cars & coffee type of car club, members actually take to the roads and drive their cars like they should be driven. For the first meet of the summer, members met at the Triumph Brewing Company in the town of New Hope.  In a crowd full of German cars, a Subaru WRX STI S209 was a very welcomed newcomer. This car was actually a pre-production model which meant it number 000-209, which made it even more rare. After moments of admiring all the cars, we...

Behind the Seams: Thomas Paul Raggio

Posted by Craig Schroeder on

We've always been inspired by artists who do things their own way and don't let the art world dictate their work. They are the culture shifters in the art world who create masterpieces in new mediums and techniques that we admire. Our newest lining collaboration is with contemporary artist, Thomas Raggio, who we worked on a series of colorful and geometric linings that can now be added to any CMMP suit or jacket.    Thomas on his art: I contemplate every color, mark, and placement of the line to formulate what I call rhythmic velocities: relationships of color and motion that...
