We didn’t ask the Owner why he have call his Brand ” Maison Cornichon” (and we are sure there’s a good reason) but what a strange name for a Clothing Company “Maison Cornichon” !

On the other hand, what a Nice Concept !

Just take a simple idea, a simple piece of the wardrobe (the tee) and create something Great out of it. That’s what the Guys at Maison Cornichon have done, they decided to produce regular tees but Made in France on old 50′ machines with French fabrics made on old shuttle loom machines !!!!

The result is has we could expect it, nice fits (Classic & Heritage) made from top quality fabrics (one by one rib, natural cotton, extra heavy jersey).

The name of the Brand don’t take itself too seriously but the Products are SERIOUSLY of HIGH QUALITY !

 

Soon in store & online…..

 

 


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.


What a Nice Brand and Concept !

We are a little “tired” of all those denim Brands that pop out from nowhere and claim to be authentic, original and others….

So when we found out about Livid Jeans, we were very pleased to see that it’s still possible today to create a Brand with a strong Concept, a Nice DNA, great cut and products and above all, Quality !

Livid Jeans it’s before all a Human story, a story of Guys coming from different horizons who decided to take the same road, it’s the story of Guys who had the same approach to Nature, to Life and to Quality.

Since seven years (when Livid Jeans started), they have made some mistakes, they have learned from those mistakes and they got stronger.

Livid Jeans is the union of Japanese quality and details mixed with Scandinavian minimalist approach and look.

Most of Livid Jeans pieces are Made in Europe (Portugal) and they also produce locally in Norway while most of them fabrics are Made in Japan.

The cuts, the qualities, the design……., we which we could see more often Brands like Livid Jeans !
