BRANDT-SORENSON made-to-measure offers boutique technical clothing from our atelier in downtown Los Angeles, California. The focus is on quality and functionality over ease of production or cost. Our garments are about precision ergonomic fit. The contrast block designs are created for visibility. Our color palette communicates the class and prestige of the modern athlete. Most athletic gear is brightly printed for visibility yet muddles into disruptive camouflage to the motorist’s and pedestrian’s eyes. Our clothing is purposed to enhance the athlete's experience and performance. Our patterns and textiles are the results of years of refinement. Once you pedal in a pair of our Bib Shorts, there is no turning back. Our Run Shorts have a smooth liner, perfectly balanced pockets and a style unmatched by bulk production. We offer made-to-measure garments to the athlete’s unique dimensions. Athletes can also find their exact match on our chart or submit measurements. During endurance activities, the fit is everything.
