Sustainability

Who made your clothes and where did they come from? BRANDT-SORENSON Luxury Sport Apparel is proud to offer world-class sustainability for athletes. Every garment is made-to-measure in our Los Angeles atelier and shipped directly to the athlete. Our apparel model eliminates excessive sizing production and global shipping steps between supply chains.

-----------------------------------------------

We verify that absolutely zero forced labor, human trafficking or indentured servitude occurs in the construction of our clothing. Zero. Globally, it's estimated that 95% of apparel workers live in poverty and the industry is the second largest polluter. Forced labor, human trafficking and indentured servitude is a reality in most global supply chains.

-----------------------------------------------

BRANDT-SORENSON is a tiny boutique sport brand, and we believe that our made-to-measure model is the future for a global sustainable apparel industry. Standardized sizing is a myth of industrial manufacturing. It seeks to average fit to the lowest common denominator into five sizing blocks wearable by the most amount of people, yet fitting no one person. Look around, do you see only five shapes of people? Poor fit is the backbone of the throwaway fast fashion culture, made acceptable by low costs, perpetual clearance sales from fake retail pricing, and endless shipping exchanges. BRANDT-SORENSON Luxury Sport Apparel is leading a new path forward.

-----------------------------------------------

We use the following types of fabrics: milled in the USA, recycled remnants and mill seconds, recycled polyester fibers, natural fibers such as viscose, rayon of bamboo, wool, and organic cotton. We purchase locally whenever possible.

-----------------------------------------------

Fit, quality and durability are the key components of a sustainable garment. A single, well made piece can take the place of a dozen fast fashion garments, which often are discarded prematurely into landfills. The greatest social and environmental impact BRANDT-SORENSON can make is through quality. There are no magic sewing robots, and clothing is labor intensive. Americans on average discard approximately 80 lbs. of clothing into landfills prematurely each year due to poor fit, quality or changing trends.
