Coast-Wide

Coast-Wide is a trademark that has been synonymous with quality
American-made chambray for almost 80 years. The name was derived from the
most significant waterfront strike in American history, closing ports up
and down the west coast for 83 days in 1934, as America’s coast-wide
longshoremen demanded higher wages and a shorter workday.

For Autumn 2013, Coast-Wide is re-imagined as a collection of the highest
quality chambray shirts and pants for men and women. Each style will be
produced in very limited runs and built in Los Angeles. It is constructed
with the utmost attention to detail, the finest Japanese cloth, and
adorned with hand-crafted embroideries by our community of local artists
and friends. Recognized by the indelible outline of America on every
label, Coast-Wide is our canvas for cosmic collaboration and craft.

M.Nii

M.Nii is a men’s collection designed, developed and artistically directed through our POP Studio division.  The authentic story dates back to the 1950’s at a mom-and-pop tailor shop called M.Nii near Makaha, where some of the earliest surf-specific trunks took flight.  Their nickname: the “Makaha Drowner.” They were not just a pair of surf trunks, they were a memento, a badge of honor.  The tradition and story live on today as we launch the brand this summer at tastemaker retailers across the US and in Japan.  Say ‘Aloha’ to the newest member of our brand portfolio.
