When & Where
There are certain products that men everywhere turn to for reliability and inherent style. Military issue chino pants, Timex watches, Lacoste shirts, Levi's oxford cloth shirts--all represent the proverbial "real McCoy." Most were originally created to serve a purpose--Chinos for the military, Levis for the workman, Lacoste shirts for the sportsman. Mass marketers have taken the concept of these items and produced lesser products for the sake of fashion. Remember when the only great chino pant you could buy was made of heavy canvas and sold exlusively in Army/Navy stores? Unfortunately, few of these originals still exist.
We've always appreciated companies like J. Press, Brooks Brothers, Levi's, Barbour and even Oxford Clothing for being great companies that make useful items for men. The products these companies manufacture have style because the designs have a reason for being. With these products as inspiration, we created JACK SPADE. We want to return to this approach, once again offering mens items that represent both honest, thoughtful design and practical purpose.
