Battenwear – de New York a Lolos.

Battenwear is for the adventurer who needs well-made gear that can handle the demands of the great outdoors while still being fashionable for everyday city wear.

Designer Shinya Hasegawa—who previously worked on the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection—is a lifelong vintage clothing hound. His inspiration for Battenwear comes from late 1960’s through early 1980’s surf and outdoor wear, an era of clothing he sees as embodying constant change, challenge, and forward-moving energy.

Using this vintage vibeas a jumping off point, Shinya designs Battenwear for the contemporary adventurer. An avid traveler himself, Shinya gravitates toward making clothing and accessories that are versatile, multi-functional, easily packable, and as comfortable as they are stylish. These are items that are intricately constructed to meet your needs, last long, and work hard, and they get better each time they are washed and worn.

Battenwear also grows out of Shinya’s experience as a year-round East Coast surfer. Surfing and other outdoor pursuits—like hiking, climbing, and camping—breed people who are dedicated to their sport in a way that defines them in their day-to-day lives, no matter where they are or what they happen to be doing. Battenwear strives to facilitate that dedication by making great looking outdoor clothes that are, above all else, functional and comfortable.
