Freenote Cloth Descends on West 3rd Street

September 10, 2016

We’re thrilled to welcome menswear brand, Freenote Cloth, to West 3rd Street, as the apparel company takes over the Liberty Concept Space for the month of March.

Freenote is a classic menswear collection manufactured exclusively in the United States – specifically, right here in Los Angeles. Launched in 2013 by brothers Matt and Andrew Brodrick, the brand is headquartered in San Juan Capistrano, and was founded on the premise of making “the best men’s clothing in the U.S.”

Known for their range of selvedge denim, waxed canvas jackets, chinos and woven shirts, the brand is less about fitting a specific mold or trend, Andrew Brodrick says, than it is about making good quality pieces for guys to wear. iphone xs case for sale “We’re not reinventing the wheel,” Brodrick says, “nor are we obsessing over telling men how to dress. outlet iphone 8 case online Instead,” he explains, “we makes clothes that we like to wear, and clothes that we think guys will want to wear too.”

“People are so conscious about what they’re buying these days,” Brodrick says, “and we want them to get to know us and be educated about what they’re wearing, so that they can be proud of what they buy.”
