Dismantled Circular Vest
An individually upcycled ultralight wind vest made from your unused printed vest, dismantled and re-built with an advanced ultralight fabric and a Polartec Alpha insulated chest panel. Purge your closet and send in that ill-fitting or out of style cycling vest to be upcycled into a classic made-to-measure garment by BRANDT-SORENSON.
The apparel industry is the second largest polluter globally, with a massive carbon footprint due to global supply chain and distribution shipping steps. Polyester cycling kits are a type of plastic that takes 20-200 years to degrade. Americans are discarding 80 lbs. of clothing yearly into landfills due to poor fit and changing trends. 95% of apparel imported into the USA is tainted by modern day slavery. Fast fashion is creating not only an environmental crisis but a moral and aesthetic crisis.
Join us for a revolutionary new approach to technical sportswear. Ride in sartorial style with your own Dismantled Circular Vest, made-to-measure by BRANDT-SORENSON in our downtown Los Angeles workshop.
