Cut Loose is an extensive line of casual clothing that is sewn and dyed to order in San Francisco. Known for fabrics, flattering fit, simple shapes, and colors. Starting in the late ’70s, street-vending T-shirts and drawstring pants on Fisherman’s Wharf, there were no changing rooms, so the clothes were literally cut loose – one size fits all. Today, the fit is “implied shape,” meaning the shape of the body is implied in a flattering way. When a Cut Loose garment “fits,” it simultaneously flatters the figure and allows room to really move.
Cut Loose keeps their environmental footprint as light as possible. Dyes are non-toxic, and waste water is neutralized so the salt doesn’t corrode the city’s pipes. Fabric tests are re-purposed into scarves, napkins, market bags, even scrunchies, even their labeling is minimalist.
Constructed with high-quality linen, cotton, and the occasional synthetic in an array of textures and weights. Each piece is dyed for an effect of uncommon depth and color. Modern. Timeless. Edgy. Effortless. Cynthia Ashby pieces are known for comfort, and her customers value quality and delight in making an impression without subscribing to fashion trends. Made in the U.S.A

PLEATS PLEASE by ISSEY MIYAKE
A collection of clothes that are a product in themselves, made with a unique "garment pleating" technique where the materials are developed from a single thread and pleats are added after sewing the clothes into shape. Garments are sandwiched between two layers of washi paper, then fed into a heat-press. The pleats remain permanently in the fabric’s “memory”. PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE is the perfect, elegant, yet practical solution for the needs of a modern person, translating effortlessly from work to play to suit their diverse needs.
PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE have developed their own sizing standard which does not translate to traditional sizing charts. The garments by PLEATS PLEASE follow a sizing standard within the length of the garment only and do not differ in width. The reasoning behind this standard is due to the amount of fabric which is used prior to the garment becoming pleated. Therefore only the length differs between sizes with a pitch of 2.5-3cm between each size. Made in Japan
