It’s hard to say exactly when you can consider yourself a New Yorker.
We’ve lived here for a decade and still smile when we walk on the High Line or see the Empire State lit up at night. Running over the Williamsburg Bridge at dusk and cycling through a quiet Central Park at 6am are magical moments to us. The only thing better than escaping the city for the great outdoors is flying back in, pressing our faces against the plane window to see the city skyline lit up at night. Shows at Bowery Ballroom. Soup dumplings in Chinatown. The list doesn’t end. We <3 NYC.
Given how much we love this city, we are especially proud that Proof garments are designed and built in New York City.
Manufacturing our garments in NYC is not cheap, nor are the fabrics we use. Far from it. However, the choice to us was always very clear. We believe in supporting our local community and businesses. It’s incredibly gratifying to be able to pop into our partner’s production floor and chat face-to-face with the skilled craftspeople that make our products. Just as important, producing in NYC lets us maintain high standards on product quality and allows us to rapidly prototype new garments during our development phase.
