The label I am going to talk about today is very special. I came across Red, Wite, and Blue Co. on Instagram.
I was so intrigued by their gallery that I had to shoot them a message. Edwin Castro, who founded Red, Wite, and Blue Co. together with his brother, Mario, was extremely kind and sent me some information about their brand, which I am going to share with you.
Red, Wite and Blue Co. is a small family business, located in Los Angeles, California.
The story of how the business started is quite interesting. One day Edwin purchased a pair of selvedge jeans and confessed to his father how much he spent for them, 500 USD! Edwin’s father, an experienced tailor, was of course speechless. He, then, gave Edwin and Mario some patterns of U.S. workwear inspired clothes he made for some of his customers.
A few months later, Edwin and Mario founded Red, Wite and Blue Co.
Inspired by the 1940s and 50s American/European workwear and motorcycle racing, Edwin and Mario design and construct their clothes exclusively in-house.
They only make limited production of goods, using the finest, highest quality materials. Every product is beautifully handcrafted in Los Angeles by one person from beginning to end and it is built to last through the ages.
“Our philosophy has always been designing clothes with the highest quality and details as possible. We make clothing that my brother and I will be proud to wear…Quality over quantity – the old fashioned way. When each product is finished, we inspect each piece one at a time so we know you’re getting the best quality products”.
Edwin and Mario also do accessories, like this 1940s newsboy style cap made from a deadstock grosgrain cloth and this amazing selvedge bag (I am totally in love with it).
I highly recommend to check out the Red, Wite and Blue Co. website to explore the full range of products.
