CEO & FOUNDER

My name is Wilson Quezada, when I was only 7 years old, I took fabric scraps from the trash bins of my uncle’s factory in Ecuador to make my jeans. This set me on a path toward my future, which involved a perilous 6-month trek across war-torn areas of South and Central America to arrive, finally, in New York at 19. I got a job grading, marking and cutting by hand in midtown, and parlayed this into my operation after only 2 years.

I gradually expanded, acquiring equipment and employees as I grew. After 25 years, losing my lease on the factory in the city forced me to move. After Brooklyn and Queens proved too expensive, I settled on my current location (which is near where I live) in New Jersey. Now operating with 15 employees, I've been successful enough to acquire a range of high-tech equipment that allows me to fully construct an entire piece of technical outerwear, from cutting and sewing to trims. I can even provide the laser cutting necessary for the reflective sleeve logo.

Perhaps most importantly, my team and I have the expertise to live up to the standards of quality we’ve come to expect from manufacturing in countries like Italy, Canada, Japan, and Portugal.
