Here’s another “Replica”, “Authentic” Brand but with a new approach : Thoroughstitch NYC.
The idea of Thoroughstitch began forming around 2011, with the desire to create well made American clothing in America. Not just clothing, but solutions for an easier and better everyday life. They aim to create classic, simple items that fit within a modern lifestyle. All of them items are based on classic American pieces, but are made in a new way. They don’t make reproduction garments, but are trying to carry on a tradition in menswear by providing classic clothes.
When beginning to design a product they strive to understand the basic fundamentals of a product and build it from there. This entails studying antique garments, old catalogs, menswear books, vintage photographs, fabrics, trims, etc. They then source materials that have integrity, honesty and character, because these ingredients will build a product with these same qualities. They strive to create a product that is simple, has a casual elegance and will get better with time and use.
Thoroughstitch NYC goal isn’t to create the newest, latest, never before seen.
Thoroughstitch NYC commitment is to provide the best product they can and stand by it throughout it’s life.
They strive to give the best customer service they can and they fully guarantee all of them products.
Them loyalty in manufacturing remains local, not because it’s easy, but because they feel it is only natural and worthy to help support and continue to cultivate local communities and the workers, who in turn support them.
They are based in New York City and all of them products are made in NY. The particular factory they work with specializes in menswear and is one of the few places in NYC that has a double needle chainstitch machine, which is a key construction for the trousers.
The cut of the garments is on the traditional and relaxed side. They are not baggy, or sloppy, but just easy and relaxed fitting.
We especially love the Ripstop Tropical Military trouser based on a relaxed military fit.
