It’s not unusual to dream about clothing icons of the past, but it is unusual to find them sitting in front of you, exactly as you’d imagine them through rose-tinted lenses, ready to be worn and broken in for a new generation. Wythe is an individual pursuit into finding and creating this lost Americana, remaking heirlooms of the past to fit well today and last through tomorrow.
With a passion for materials and craft, designer Peter Middleton goes out of his way to put his signature taste in all of the styles, from developing an all-new exclusive ombre tweed with a family-owned mill in Donegal, Ireland to custom dying moleskin to get the perfect shades.
Even if the styles reflect the past, the production looks to the future. The authentic Shetland yarns may come from Scotland but production is taken to a female owned and operated atelier in Madagascar, and cottons are sustainably sourced and BCI certified. It’s this kind of forward-thinking that tells us this young brand is focused on the long haul.
