At a glance: Draught Dry Goods is primarily a collection of masculine and minimalist accessories that is beginning to expand into menswear as well.
Who’s behind the brand? Casey Oney, the designer and founder of the brand, has a background in photography, though he says that from the moment he had his first sewing machine and learned how to stitch a straight line, he knew he wanted his own company. He also established Portland-based Odd Fellow Company with Aaron Settlemier, where beginning next year they will specialize in their slim-fit varsity jacket.
What do they do? Draught Dry Goods is a men’s accessory line, though they’ve recently expanded into clothing with the addition of a great varsity jacket, and most of their goods are unisex. They are anti-branding and pro-craftsmanship, producing as much as possible in-house, and much of it is only produced once the order is actually placed, with the option for special requests and adjustments on many of their items. It’s quality over flash and quantity.
Editors’ favorites from the line? The backpacks have a great streamlined yet still totally utilitarian silhouette, and they use some pretty inventive materials in addition to your standard waxed canvas and leather, like reptile embossed cowhide, or a quilted floral.
Where are they based? Portland, Oregon
What materials do they use? Waxed canvas and leather seem to be the top two materials, though the brass findings and the wool trimming have just as much thought put into them as the main pieces.
Where can I get the goods? Draught Dry Goods has its own online shop, but the goods have caught on like wildfire, and now they’re stocked at a number of stores across the US including Steven Alan, as well as 12345. You can also find them at stockists in Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and Japan. For details and more info check out their stockist page.
