Our History

Seventeen years making. A hundred years in the making.



Our brand was born in 2007, the product of an American working heritage.

Heavily influenced by the fields and farms and great lakes of Ohio and Michigan that we were fortunate enough to grow up around, we remain loyal and based here in Ohio.

One of the first garments we made was our Military Parka. Exhaustive detailing went into this piece (and every piece thereafter) to make sure every element provided a sense of heritage and purpose that was straightforward.  Our ultimate aim always being to produce function and a quality of character that will serve for years of wear.

More than anything, we care about getting it right.

And what about that bird? Our icon, the barn swallow, serves to remind us of our agrarian roots. This swift and highly adaptable bird closely cohabitates with us, nesting in man-made structures and feasting on insects detrimental to crops. Longevity of its nests are legendary, one was reported to have been occupied for forty-eight years.

All of this reinforces our mission…to create the kind of clothing that works and will remain relevant and lasting, a hundred years from now.
