Stevenson Overall Co.



The Stevenson Overall Company was relaunched from the encounter of Zip Stevenson and Atsusuke Tagaya. We have been always aiming in progress by Stevenson Overall Company.

The brand originally existed in Portland, Indiana in the United States in 1920's-30's. With the brand relaunch in 2005, the collection was developed from Stevenson's and Tagaya's shared deep interest vintage denim and leather goods. They aimed to redevelop the process of creating jeans with a “flat felled seam” that are constructed with the sewing methods used before the 1920's. The reason they keep using this unconventional sewing method is that they value the original taste from the hand made goods that has been consistent from the time of the original brand establishment. The varieties in the collections are created with inspirations from vintage clothes, fabrics and art and they keep pursuing the designs and details that were lost but not forgotten at this time and reassembling as suitable clothes for this modern time which is “nostalgic but new, modern and universal”.

Zip Stevensonと多賀谷強守が運命と言える一つの出会いからはじまったスティーブンソン オーバーオールズ。1930年代にアメリカ・インディアナ州に良質なワークウェアを生産していた小さな工場がありました。世界恐慌の煽りを受け閉鎖したこの工場のモノ作りに対するこだわりと存在を知り、経営者であった親族にも偶然にも会う機会がありました。そしてこの工場の名前とジップのラストネームが同名であったことから「STEVENSON OVERALL CO.」として新たに2005年にスタート。
