Second Grade Garment

A second grade garment is an item that hasn't passed our rigorous quality controls, but is still fully wearable. These deviations can pertain to how a garment looks (e.g. an unintended color shade), fits (a slight deviation in fit) or behaves (shrinkage or twisting). The exact deviation is fully described on each product page.

About The Archive

With a permanent collection, we never have seasonal sales. Our garment prices are fixed to cover the costs of responsible grade A fiber production, ethical high-end manufacturing and our care, repair and revival services. The only time we can offer pre-consumer, unworn garments at lowered prices is when we have expired versions or second grade garments available.

Expired Versions: With a permanent collection we're able to constantly improve our garments, based on rigorous testing and continous feedback. These tweaks are often incremental, but from time to time, a garment is updated to the extent that it cannot be sold as the same product: The fit, design or main materials have changed significantly.

Second Grade: Garments are the product of natural fibres and delicate manual labour. A garment starts at farming, where it is subject to the influences of fluctuating environmental conditions. From there it touches countless hands from fiber to finished piece. Inevitably, sometimes things go wrong and garments don't tick all the boxes of our strict quality controls.
