For almost thirty years now, Union has come to be known as a considered and well curated menswear boutique that offers a sophisticated and diverse swath of men’s fashion. We have always spanned the globe (both high and low) for fashion that is a slightly off the beaten path.Today Union is the archetype for the modern menswear boutique; mixing high end and low end fashion.
About a year ago we pinpointed a void in the marketplace; not high or low, but in the middle. Not being able to fill this void using our usual methods of finding it. We decided to start a new chapter, one of making our own.
With this collection, we didn’t want to reinvent the wheel, but rather just fine tune it. We have learned over the course of some 20 years of buying and selling clothing is that the devil is often in the details. We wanted this first collection to be about silhouettes, fits and fabrics. Our favorite fabrics have always seemed to come from Japan so we decided to source all of our fabrics in Japan.
We wanted to create a new take on the pullover hoody. It’s our favorite item at the store but they all inevitably look similar. We added a single zip down one side to give it a little fashion flair and we removed the front pocket to make the hoody a bit cleaner. The fit, much like the jacket is boxy and oversized, I guess that is the Union style.
In my humble opinion I find that Japan offers the best fleece in the world and especially their reverse weave “loop wheeled” fleece. So to make our hoody we found a beautiful reverse weave fabric. The main goal was to find a really tight and uniform reverse weave to help establish a luxurious feel.
Fits true to size.
