Sir New York is an independent New York based fashion label.
Our Concept: The concept behind Sir New York is athleticism with a hint of provocation. Using mesh in unique ways to create texture, optical illusions and shading, we aim to reinterpret sportswear. We are a clothing line in the tradition of menswear, for all genders. This relatable, sleek, modern menswear line is for everyone, and our line is sized slightly smaller to include smaller guys and women.
Our Inspiration: As a partnership between a gay and trans man, Sir has a unique perspective and relationship to clothing. We take our inspiration from a wide variety of athletics by juxtaposing macho references with the graceful, refined, elegant sportsman. For example for Fall/Winter 2011 we invoke both auto racing and archery as we add our own take on masculinity.
Our Passion: We are struggling artists because we have decided to follow our own vision rather than take corporate design jobs. We do everything from concept, design, pattern making, fabric sourcing, fitting and production, to web design, branding, photoshoots, model casting, look books and fashion shows and much more all on our own, while working full-time and freelance jobs to fund the line.
Our Mission: We buy from distributors locally and everything is made here in New York with the exception of our alpaca sweaters knit in Peru. We support Save the Garment Center and practice social and economic sustainability, and want to include diverse voices in the fashion industry.
Your Contribution: We are making clothes that we really want people to wear and feel good about. We believe we are doing something different and important! Help us produce the line and get it into stores. Your contributions will pay for fabric, trims, graders, cutters, sewers, hang tags, and all other production costs.
We honestly could not produce this line without your support, the continued success of Sir New York depends on you, together we can make this happen.
