Outlier’s conceptions is a testament to the uniquely serendipitous moments that life sometimes offers. Abe Burmeister and Tyler Clemens wanted to design a new breed of functional, smartly styled clothing that could stand up to exhausting bike rides as easily as a desk job or night out without the need for a shower and change in between. Neither had any design experience.

After some years in America as a buyer, Suzuki founded Engineered Garments in 1999, which has continued to produce beautiful and utterly unique collections every season since.

Since its conception in 2000, UNIS has developed into a mainstay of classic and understated design in the menswear scene. The label’s oxfords, chinos, t-shirts, and jackets – all produced and manufactured in New York and Los Angeles – have a simple yet sophisticated aesthetic. Eunice Lee, the founder, has maintained a perfect balance between a tailored, contemporary feel and subtle, timeless designs by drawing inspiration from vintage American casual wear. Her designs are modern and flattering while maintaining a utilitarian edge, which has given the label an enviable prestige among stylish men who value simplicity and quality.

After years of designing for American menswear stalwarts Ralph Lauren, Gap, and J.Crew, Todd Snyder’s breakout F/W ’11 collection somehow managed to feel both fresh and satisfyingly classic. While the elements to Snyder’s aesthetic may be familiar – and have since become pervasive, due in no small part to his efforts – the foundations of rugged, vintage-inspired work and military wear were blended effortlessly with sharp, modern tailoring. The fluid way the two disparate inspirations came together displayed all of the best elements in his previous brands with a subtle new sophistication, and this idea has matured with each new collection.

For years surfing in NYC was reserved for the die hards. Even though the Atlantic Ocean is minutes away, the urban density didn’t make transporting a surfboard an easy task. Nonetheless the interest was there, and in 2009 Saturdays Surf seized the opportunity and helped usher in the popularity of the sport by opening up their shop in Soho.
