Endurance Without Compromise

PRESIDENT’s is a contemporary Made in Italy menswear brand. We make garments that will endure for years without compromise in contemporary style.

The brand was originally founded in 1957 by 7 Bell S.p.A, a Tuscan atelier with an illustrious history, founded by the grandfather of current creative director, Guido Biondi. 7 Bell has long been known for its superior quality garments and was the very first producer of Italian denim.

From time to time, we collaborate with esteemed brands from around the world who share our passion for meticulous quality and world-class saper-fare in function, form, and materials. With every collection, PRESIDENT’s combines tradition with research to make true contemporary classics, Crafted in Tuscany.

A Modern and Basic Mix

We Norwegians is an apparel company, based in Voss, Norway. Focusing on the design, distribution, and marketing of premium wool products.

Norwegians are wrapped in soft, wool blankets as new-borns, and we continue to wear wool as we grow up – Through out the year. The idea behind We Norwegians is to take the natural benefits that wool have, and make garments that have a natural technical function as well as a contemporary design. The designs are a mix of modern basics and traditional, Norwegian knitting patterns.

Laid-Back Extravagance

"Eventide marks the transition between day and night, a time that calls for refreshment and rejuvenation. Eventide Oyster Co. offers a variety of restoratives—we welcome you to join us at any time of day for satisfying food, spirits and good cheer." 

These are the welcoming words on the Eventide website and we think it's also a perfect way to describe how we feel about great clothing and individual style.  Exceptional clothing should enable one to comfortably transition from day to night and in doing so, make one feel refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Last week we had the huge privilege of being welcomed to Eventide to photograph owner and chef, Mike Wiley wearing some of our new favorite spring pieces. Given the fact that Mike, is a 2017 James Beard Award winner and a super nice down- to- earth guy, we can't think of a better candidate for highlighting some items of "laid-back extravagance"  (Also borrowed from the crafty lingo of the Eventide website).  

If you're feeling the need for some springtime refreshment and rejuvenation come on in to shop these great laid-back extravagant duds by Gitman, Raleigh Denim, Citizens of Humanity, Mason's, and We Norwegians.
