High Grade U.S. Standard has just dropped their debut line of originally and faithfully reproduced heritage American workwear, and while it might be the first time you’ve heard their name they are by no means the new kids on the block. Founder Andrew Phelps has been wheeling and dealing vintage clothing since 1994, and has developed a refined taste for work-, outdoor-, and athletic-wear worn from the late 1800s to 1940s, to be exact.
Though the collection is relatively small—consisting of three jackets, a henley, and a tote bag—the level of detail poured into each piece is second to none. Every bit of material used is custom made, down to the cast buttons and exclusively milled fabrics, with construction being expertly handled by Ooe Yofuketen in Japan. Accompanying this release is the complete lookbook, shot by the bandit himself, Corey Piehowicz, showcasing some highlights of each piece in action.
The collection ranges from $165-$550 and you can find it at High Grade U.S. Standard.
