The Man Bringing Textile Manufacturing Back to the US: Jacob Long of American Woolen

Posted by Craig Schroeder on

So often when talking about menswear you associate quality men's products with the term "Made in Italy" because you know Italy has a high quality of craftsmanship and production.

Behind the Seams: XO Finn

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 that's how we came across San Francisco based artist, XO Finn. Her work is unlike any we've seen before, it is a beautiful combination of mediums into unique masterpieces. We commissioned her to create some unique works that we now use in the linings that can be added to any commissioned CMMP Suit or Jacket.    We sat down with XO Finn to...
