SeaVees pioneered the transformation of the sneaker from gym shoe to casual shoe. For any social affair, one could show up in SeaVees; a comfortable sneaker with the sophistication of a dressier shoe.

Jaclyn Fu


We believe every woman is a real woman, regardless of the size, shape, or color of her breasts. We think it's unacceptable that body standards have made small-chested women feel inadequate and belittled. We are passionate about lifting our #smallsquad community up, and starting a movement to redefine body image.

Paul Cunningham


At Notch we make the world's greatest and most innovative hats and we set out to make one of the most worn pieces of headwear on the planet, the baseball cap, even better than it already was. Paul Cunningham, a veteran of the US Marines, had always been frustrated with wearing hats with sunglasses the way he wanted. Notch was born out of his search for an answer to this problem.
