Suggested Viewing: Being There

Posted on April 05, 2014 in Being There, Chauncey, Nathalie Bouhana, Peter Sellers

Brussels-based, knitwear-predominant brand Chauncey takes its moniker from an American comedy-drama film based on the quirky persona of an innocently oblivious middle-aged gardener, played by British actor Peter Sellers. The brand's garment labels often come adorned with quotables from the simple-witted protagonist in the film and to a degree inform the artful playfulness of the knitwear company.

It is a wonder at times what the true value of a garment label reading the words, "Made in USA" really entails. Often not many factories in today's world can say with certainty that they proudly operate with the traits of superior craftsmanship and longevity unless it has been proven over time. Cone Denim is one of the remaining few in the United States who bears that authority and it is no wonder why Patrik Ervell, a label who strives to find the right factories to keep production on home turf, has sought out the century old manufacturer.
