"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society." - Mark Twain

The South offers a very distinct culture of music, cuisine, literature,  and easy-going people that define it's way of life. With the recent boom of incredible musicians, artists, and creative innovation emerging from The South we instinctively draw our inspiration from everyday life here in Birmingham, AL. 

Many wouldn't consider Alabama the source for emerging fashion designers and innovation in style, but we believe otherwise. Our inspiration and way of life translates beautifully into our products with subtle hints of character and personality that are truly unique to our nature. We're excited to have the opportunity to share what we believe is something absolutely amazing - A collection that could only come from the idiosyncratic minds and hard work of three 'Southern Gentlemen' and their search for artistry through fashion and design.

PS- We'd like to offer a tip of the hat' to Billy Reid for paving the way and providing true inspiration that opened our eyes to believe this was possible.

Cody, Mike, and I spent a lot of time searching for our similar yet very distinct tastes in style through different brands and clothing lines, department stores, boutiques, thrift shops, and vintage stores all over the world – and the song remains the same – We’re still constantly looking and laboring over the ideas for incredible pieces of subtle sophisticated apparel – This search eventually brought us together with the idea of designing and building our own unique collections and sharing them with the world through Finn Apparel. We came together to launch Finn Apparel and stop the search by making unique, sophisticated, and stylish apparel for men of the highest quality - starting with a flagship twist on the classic trouser.

We’re creating something totally new, Join Us!

The Finn Hem Trouser is the perfect fit, feel, and style that every fashion forward male has been looking for, but it’s even more than that. We’ve added an element of our own that makes this trouser absolutely one of a kind.

Not too skinny, Not too loose- The perfect fitting pant.
Not too skinny, Not too loose- The perfect fitting pant.

The Finn Hem trouser is a timeless piece where vintage meets modern. Built around a slim straight fit with the perfect rise; not too skinny, not too loose with an unmatched comfort in the perfect cotton twill.   

  • Sits below waist. 
  • Slim through hip and thigh, with a 15 1/2" leg opening (based off size 32/32). 
  • Cotton twill. 
  • Zip fly. 
  • Off-seam pockets, back welt pockets.

We've spared no expense in the quality, detail, and design precision that go into this trouser. It's a true portrait of excellence.

Every trouser is consistent in quality and detail. We’ve sourced some of the finest fabrics from around the world, and the blend makes for one of the most comfortable pair of pants you will ever wear.

We’ve hand selected these colors and custom fabrics for the hems, and worked on these specific pairings individually to roll out this line for fall and winter of this year when we expect to ship them out to you. The initial line of Finn Hem Trousers will consist of 4 colors;  each with a unique custom fabric hem on the inside of the pant. A simple roll of the cuff gives you the ability to transition from an everyday classic to a one of a kind contemporary trouser. Dress it up or Dress it down!

THE COCHISE HOODIE: I can't say enough about this hoodie, it's one of those pieces that will become a staple in your attire. A mid-weight fleece brushed on the inside for superior comfort, and double lined in the hood for extra warmth. The button closure adds an element of sophistication which makes this piece easy to wear dressed up or down. An absolute must have piece for fall and winter. (We could have dedicated an entire project to the details that went into this piece to make it what it is, and are offering it here at an extremely low price to our backers) - Great for guys and girls  (available in sizes Extra Small- Extra Large)

Most of us have seen or worn five panel hats, and we knew we had to make the Finn Corduroy Camper stand above the rest. The fabric selection for this piece is what makes it truly unique. The use of corduroy for this piece adds subtle sophistication and keeps the style simple while giving you an extremely durable hat with snapback closure that will last for years to come as you break it in. The Five Panel will be offered in three colors: Navy, Gray, and Brown.

The Finn Slouch Beanie was designed by our very own 'beanie aficionado' (Cody) He claims that this beanie is the most comfortable, stylish, and highest quality 'slouch' thread he's every put on his head and gives it his personal stamp of approval. (He's a beanie expert and demanded this piece be a part of this project ) The Slouch Beanie will be offered in three colors: Red, Blue, and Gray

The Finn Voyage Keychain -  Welcome to the journey!
The Finn Voyage Keychain - Welcome to the journey!

The Finn Voyage Keychain is a token of thanks for those of you who chose to support our project to bring the Finn Hem Trouser to life and join us on this journey. It's made from genuine leather that will last for years and stamped with our logo and slogan. A classic piece that represents the Finn way.

Founded by three southern gentlemen with a penchant and passion for making unique, sophisticated and stylish ready-to-wear men's fashion, Finn Apparel is an emerging clothier brand headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.  Dustin has been a friend of Cody since middle school. The duo would hook up with Mike years later after discovering they all had "similar yet very distinct [fashion] tastes." The group then set out to find a fashionable, affordable contemporary trouser. This search—which became a veritable journey through department stores, boutiques, thrift shops and vintage stores the world over—would prove to be unfruitful, ultimately providing inspiration for Finn Apparel and "the idea" for a flagship twist on the classic trouser.  

When it came to launching a brand The Guys connected with Philip Cardwell and John-Michael Scott.  Philip and John-Michael, partnering with scrappy startups like Finn, brought the marketing and launch campaign strategy skills to the team and are working hard with Dustin, Cody and Michael to share Finn Apparel with the world through their crowdfunding campaign and elsewhere!  

“The Guys at Finn” design, manufacture and plan to sell the Finn Apparel collection, which they plan to expand, direct to consumers through an online store following the Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

"Let's make a dent in the universe."
— Steve Jobs

There are many challenges that could and probably will arise with a project of this nature, but we are prepared to face these challenges head on with open and creative minds. One of the biggest challenges we will face is maintaining the highest possible level of quality in every piece that goes out the door - This could mean potential delays in production and shipment, although we are confident in our preparation and do not foresee any major risks we know that with any new endeavor obstacles are inevitable.

We will maintain a high level of transparency to our backers and those who choose to take this journey with us by providing timely and efficient updates on every step of the process. We will also make ourselves readily available to our supporters to ensure proper communication and information to all; so that the margin of error is menial at best and tracked with accuracy and honesty.
