About Us


 

BRANDT-SORENSON Luxury Sport Apparel offers boutique made-to-measure technical clothing from our atelier in downtown Los Angeles, California. The focus is on quality and functionality over ease of production or cost. Our clothing is 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 eye. Our clothing is purposed to enhance the athlete's experience and performance. Our patterns and textiles are the result of years of refinement. Once you pedal in a pair of our Luxury Bib Shorts, there is no turning back. We offer made-to-measure garments to the rider's unique dimensions. Athletes can find their exact match on our chart or submit measurements. When it comes to riding enjoyment, fit is everything.

Cecilia Brandt is the co-owner of BRANDT-SORENSON Luxury Sport Apparel. She holds a Fashion Merchandising and Marketing degree from F.I.D.M (the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in Los Angeles, California and has extensive experience in the Product Development aspect of the business. She is an avid runner, dancer and fitness enthusiast. With 98% of American clothing made overseas, Cecilia is focused on hand crafting a top quality specialty product right here in the USA.  While we do ship hand crafted items to cyclists all over the globe, by designing, testing, cutting and sewing all in one location we are able to reduce shipping, lower lead time and create the highest quality cycling apparel.  To our advantage, we rapidly develop new designs and modifications. Countering off-the-rack industry, Cecilia is breaking ground with a unique apparel model which offers boutique garments made to an athlete's measurements.  Since 2007 she has actively taken on the challenge of creating high quality apparel outside the traditional structure of big bank loans, off-the-rack sizing and overseas factories.

Raised as an athlete and seamster in the rural Pacific Northwest, he was awarded a Ford Family Foundation Scholarship and earned a Bachelor of Science in Applied Art and a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree from the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon.

He is a multi-time California State Criterium Champion and was briefly ranked top 20 in the USA.
