The story of First Article all started with a cast of friends with a common passion for quality goods. A small team of like-minded individuals bonded over developing what was deemed as 'Transitional Americana' in 2014. We founded the company to solve the lack of locally manufactured quality goods. The vision was to assemble a line of perennial favorites from outerwear to accessories that are accessibly-priced. Each garment in the collection reflects a necessity we all had in our lives, may it be a minimal and lightweight duck canvas jacket that works with denim, or a moisture wicking melton wool cap for casual Sundays. Our garments were proudly manufactured in San Francisco and produced in limited quantities in efforts to focus on the quality.
