Today, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville's brand has become synonymous with innately wearable clothing that innovatively melds classic tailoring with an edgy yet understated New York aesthetic.
Inspired by a desire to create beautifully constructed clothes, with no formal fashion training, the founders set about learning how to make jeans. They immersed themselves in the time-honored techniques of supremely skilled, local manufacturers at some of the oldest factories in the country. The importance of quality, expert craftsmanship and attention to detail resonated deeply, informing rag & bone's core philosophy.
These principles, along with a desire to employ individuals who take great pride in their work, soon became the foundation of the rag & bone philosophy. Many of the items in the collection incorporate details or trims that go back to an earlier time when a greater appreciation was placed on fine tailoring. The same amount of emphasis is put on the inside of the garments and trims, as is taken with the outward appearance of the clothing. With a downtown sensibility, signature clean silhouettes and an inherent integrity – each piece is impeccably crafted from the finest materials available and approached from a form and function design standpoint – rag & bone continuously redefines urban style.
