Stuart & Lau
Stuart & Lau was born of the minds of two men who, quite simply, needed a better briefcase. Unable to find a bag that could keep up with their busy lives rooted in and between Hong Kong and New York City, Matthew Stuart and Jimmy Lau knew they needed their bags to do more. Modeled on the mutually reinforcing principles of simple, enduring appeal and an ever situationally-appropriate character, Stuart & Lau’s products are meant to compliment you in your next destination, wherever that may be.
Fulton & Roark
Fulton & Roark crafts high-quality grooming products specifically built for the way men operate. They believe superior products should make a man’s process of getting ready less complicated and more enjoyable. But quality ingredients are only half the story; if it’s not enjoyable, easy-to-use, and truly beneficial Fulton & Roark don’t believe it’s worth having. Fulton & Roark’s products are designed around the details that shape the lives of men; from the dimensions of the pockets in a pair of trousers, to the requirements of a global traveler, and even to the real estate around a bathroom sink.
Born out of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Fulton & Roark began with a series of solid colognes designed to integrate seamlessly into everyday life. Since then, Fulton & Roark have made it our mission to make grooming a pleasure.
North & Mark
Outerwear that performs. Founded in 2017 by Steve Cho, North & Mark offers outerwear, knitwear, and accessories options for the urban commuter. North & Mark blends the best features of your favorite performance jackets (think water and wind resistant fabrics, chill protection, breathability, and 4-way stretch) and fuses them with timeless menswear style and tailoring.

Wolf & Shepherd
Wolf & Shepherd was founded in 2015 by Notre Dame athlete turned shoe designer, Justin Schneider, who set out to design a dress shoe that had the same performance technology and comfort as an athletic shoe.Wolf & Shepherd’s collection of wingtips, monkstraps, loafers, and chelsea boots are handcrafted in Porto, Portugal with fine Italian leathers, Parisian waxes, and completed in the US with proprietary running shoe technology developed in-house.
Time is what we make it. An Australian-born brand, The 5TH designs limited run watches and accessories, inspired and shaped by experience.

The 5TH believe that the products they offer, people they work with, places they go, things they do, all center on a common goal: inspiring people to want and get more out of life. To go after what you love. And to make the most of every moment.
Like most guys, Ricky Choi and Phil Moldavski had terrible relationships with their sock drawers — that is, until 2013 when they decided to create Nice Laundry. Since then, Nice Laundry has made it easier than ever for guys to refresh and personalize their sock and underwear drawer with a single purchase.
tokyobike is a small, independent bicycle company founded in 2002 in the quiet Tokyo suburb of Yanaka, Japan. Based on the concept of Tokyo Slow our bicycles are designed to explore the places we love and call home. With a tokyobike, it is as much about the journey as the destination.
Our bicycles are designed to fit into a thoughtful, and design conscious urban lifestyle. Designed in Tokyo, they exude their Japanese roots with clean lines, and minimalistic style.
tokyobike frames are beautifully crafted of lightweight Cr-Mo steel, and made in Taiwan. Our wheel sizes are smaller to accommodate a tight fit in small living spaces, ease of transport onto public transportation, and most importantly, they are agile and accelerate more quickly in traffic.
A tokyobike is meant to be quick, comfortable, and beautiful enough to hang in your living room.
tokyobike was first brought to the US in 2014. Initially based in New York, tokyobike Americas is now headquartered in Downtown Los Angeles, where our team is currently enjoying the sunshine and riding bicycles all year round.
