The Founders Of Saturdays NYC On Their Ambitious New Collection

by MR Magazine Staff

Though it all started back in 2009 as a way to express the three founders’ love of surf culture, Saturdays NYC has since moved way past its beginnings as a maker of tees and high-end boardshorts. There’s the magazine, the coffee shop (located in the West Village store), and now a spring/summer 2017 collection that fuses the laid back vibe the company is known for with a new push into men’s tailoring. “We’ve always wanted the brand to encompass our entire closet,” co-founder Morgan Collett explains. “We love the opportunity to dress up.” The first dip into the world of tailoring came last year when the brand collaborated with Mr. Porter on an 18-piece capsule collection, which, along with tees and swim trunks, included a cotton blazer with matching trousers and dress shirts. For this year’s spring/summer collection, the brand has added even more to its tailoring repertoire, with a lineup that includes a linen double-breasted blazer and matching trousers, along with a military-inspired trench coat, button-down shirts, and a nylon satin bomber jacket.
