Fisher + Baker

Fisher + BakerFisher + Baker, a functional menswear brand combining timeless style and technical performance, will roll out its new spring/summer 2019 collection this month.

“Our fifth and largest collection is a good barometer of the progress our team has made as well as the incredible sell-through we’ve been seeing with our retail partners,” said Mike Arbeiter, president of Fisher + Baker. “We have believed from our onset that there is a real opportunity in making a premium product with luxurious versatility and it’s paying off.”

Launched in 2016, Fisher + Baker is the brainchild of founder Greg Horvitz, an industrial designer and craftsman by trade. Named after two of his maker passions, Fisher + Baker is currently carried by 27 better menswear and outdoor retailers across the U.S.

Fisher + Baker“The new pieces stay true to our mission of outfitting the everyday with superior textiles that speak for themselves in a retail experience,” said Horvitz. “The hand, the technical spec, the cut and the timeless color palette all combine to make Fisher + Baker an up-and-coming standard bearer of style in better functional menswear.”

Additions to the spring/summer collection include the Thompson Blazer ($448), a casual suit jacket with elevated trim for everything from a jet set jaunt to a summer wedding. Made from Ventile, a storied British waterproof cotton, the blazer breaths and feels as good as it performs in wet weather. Made from a unique Japanese twill with well-defined stretch and supple cotton/polyester blend, the new Union Shorts ($128) are suited to a hike through the woods or hanging out in the back yard. A bold front pocket design makes them stand out while a subtle horn button gives them a touch of luxe. And, with a classic nautical theme, the Harbour Sweater ($328) is a play off those first worn by the French Navy in the 1800s. Fisher + Baker will also add a new V-neck version to their popular Everyday Cashmere collection.

The new line will be on display at Project New York, July 22-24, Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 23-26, as well as Project Las Vegas, August 13-15. It is available for delivery to retailers by March 1, 2019.
