In a defining tale of the American Dream, a main street shoe merchant called Charles Beckman spotted a demand for comfortable, durable work boots yet there was no supply. So in 1905, he set up Red Wing Shoe Company, taking its name and logo, by way of a commemorative gesture, from a Native American called Red Wing, the leader of the original inhabitants of the upper Mississippi River territory. The lasting success of Red Wing is largely due to never compromising their two main criteria for their products, i.e. comfort and quality. This is amply illustrated by the fact that these days, continues the tradition by using the same premium craftsmanship and attention to detail: triple-stitched seams, sturdy welt construction and rich leathers are signature elements of a Red Wing boot. For over a century, this commitment to excellence has been handed down to these generations of shoemakers, and it is all this that won the Red Wing Shoes corporation a place in our hearts.

Surprisingly, Lee didn’t begin by making clothing—or manufacturing anything at all for that matter. Established in 1889 as a wholesale mercantile of groceries & goods to the West, The H.D. Lee Mercantile Company expanded gradually, and in 1912 began to manufacture work wear. Problem-solving designs earned Lee a reputation for quality, service and integrity. The success of Lee’s workwear business eventually transformed the company into a worldwide leader in the apparel industry, known for superior comfort and stylish versatility.

Founded in 1865 of John B. Stetson. Stetson was born from the spirit of the West and grew to become an American icon. Ever since, Stetson has been a global leader in headwear, a trusted household name around the world, and has become standard equipment for rugged cowboys and western aficionados everywhere. Stetson continues to create quality products that are built to last and have deep roots in the American tradition. We have a strong appreciation for objects that are made well and products that get better with age. We still craft our hats using much of the same techniques as old John B. did over 150 years ago – with an eye towards meeting the needs of the future generations of frontiersmen, pioneers, industrialists, and enthusiasts. We strive to provide an authentic American experience and tip our hats to great legends in the making.
Pike Brothers specializes in the production of authentic outdoor and workwear of the early 20th century. Authentic to us means producing garments in exactly the same way as in the original period. Our garments are more than the sum of fabric, patterns and accessories. They have a story to tell, the story of who they are and where they come from. We believe that in regard to quality, traditional workmanship has prevailed. Only with carefully selected materials and a great deal of attention to detail are we able to produce garments that meet our very high standards as well as being unique in appearance and superior in comfort and durability.
The registered trademark S. N. S. HERNING was founded in 1931 by Søren Nielsen Skyt in Herning, Denmark. As a young man, he made a living by selling knitted garments of his own making. In the mid1920'es, he learned about a technique of knitting with "bobble" patterns that increased the insulating abilities of garments. Relying on these techniques, he began manufacturing the so-called FISHERMAN sweater. which was intended to protect its wearer from the rough weather at sea, and to be robust enough to withstand the wear and tear from the hard work. All our FISHERMAN sweaters are still being knitted at our knitting factory in Herning - after the same recipe as that of Søren Nielsen Skyt - with strict rules for the layout of the bobble pattern, the cut, the measurements, and the ﬁnishing etc. The FISHERMAN sweater remains at the core of our entire design DNA.
The Original Playboy brand dates back to 1936 when the first shoes were manufactured by English shoemaker Hutton in Northampton, England, an area renowned for the best shoemaking in the world. The design was so unique that it was quickly patented to safeguard the handmade shoes with the characteristic crepe sole construction. More than 80 years later, the shoes are still manufactured based on the old construction with well over 200 manual processes requiring high levels of classic shoemaking skills. It’s one of the most complicated shoes to manufacture, especially when it comes to attaching the characteristic piping and crepe foxing. Also the same high quality materials are used today, like the 100% natural plantation rubber for the crepe sole and only the finest hunting suede and calf leather for the upper.

Born in a small, Southern California, blue-collar beach town, graced with world class point breaks and seaside racetracks, where ghosts of a once towering oil industry still linger in the shadows. Iron & Resin is the brainchild of several friends who, after decades of collective experience building successful clothing brands, decided to turn back the clock and start anew. The result is a small, hand built collection of goods that draws heavily upon the founder’s own lifestyles and experiences. Forged in California... In a mass produced, disposable world, Iron & Resin is a product of “one-off” culture. Where men still build, by their own hands, the craft they ride, be it water or land. Our goods are carefully hand crafted and printed one at a time in California.

After all, no one does selvedge denim and era-defining workwear quite like Lee.
70's helmets come from Italy and are painstakingly painted by hand, so that some models give the impression of a one-off production. Metal flake, super flake, super flat and pastello paint finishes are available. As a retro jet helmet, the 70's "Vintage" is very close to the model from the 1970s and offers modern security with its ECE homologation.
