|Battenwear is for the adventurer who needs well made clothing that can handle the demands of the great outdoors while still being fashionable for everyday city wear.
Designer Shinya Hasegawa—who previously worked and trained under Daiki Suzuki for the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection—is a lifelong vintage clothing hound. His inspiration for Battenwear comes from late 1960s through early 1980s surf and outdoor wear, an era of clothing that represented the constant change, challenge, and energy of the times. Using this vintage vibe as a jumping off point, Shinya designs Battenwear for the contemporary adventurer. An avid traveler himself, Shinya gravitates toward making clothing and accesories that are versatile, multi-functional, easily packable, and as comfortable as they are stylish.
|Shinya is also motivated by his experiences a year-round East Coast surfer. He knows that surfing and other outdoor pursuits—like hiking, climbing, and camping—breed people who are dedicated to their sport in a way that defines them in their day-to-day life, no matter where they are or what they happen to be doing. Battenwear strives to facilitate that dedication.
All Battenwear items are crafted with pride in the U.S.A.
