Spiewak – Autumn/Winter 2014 Preview

August 19th, 2014

The upcoming new season bares the fruits of our Buying Team’s hardwork, continuing our quest to bring you some of the most innovative and important menswear brands from around the globe.

This can be definitely applied to Spiewak, a brand with a supremely rich heritage and a range of outerwear with an undeniable quality.

A journey from Warsaw to Brooklyn, New York, shaped the destiny of Polish immigrant and entrepreneur Isaac Spiewak. In 1904, his handcrafted sheepskin vests sold to Williamsburg waterfront dockworkers became a foundation for the family business, starting with a small manufacturing space. Spiewak soon began creating the iconic U.S. military uniforms that would serve everyday heroes throughout the twentieth century and beyond.

Now something of an institution, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg declared 23rd September 2014 as the official Spiewak Day, such was the brand’s influence on the day-to-day life of the city’s workers. Indeed, Spiewak can be seen on the backs of subway workers, police officers and anyone else in need of reliable, heavy duty, extremely warm outerwear.

Spiewak’s Golden Fleece line pays homage to this lineage of influence, reviving and refining archival pieces with a real provenance, for example the Melton Deck Jacket worn by ground workers in the U.S Military.

Take a look below at our buying images from the upcoming season as well as the short video charting Spiewak’s history. For more information, please feel free to email us at info@endclothing.co.uk.
