Q: What is the “California Collection?”
Sewn in our home state, the California Collection takes its name from where it’s made. Its domestic production creates jobs, keeps money in the community, reduces the environmental impact of shipping and brings us closer to the process in every way. It’s more than the tangible benefits, though, that make the difference. The “Sewn in California” tag tells a story, and it’s one we’re proud of.
Q: Is Merino Wool really a performance fabric?
Merino wool is not a new performance fabric. It’s the original performance fabric. Merino’s refined look and ability to perform at the highest levels, without compromising its aesthetic appeal or comfort, sets it apart from every synthetic fabric on the market. Merino also lends itself to a tailored approach to fit and fabrication, something that’s at the heart of the new road viewpoint.
