John Peterman, born in 1941, founded his eponymous brand as a mail-order clothing company in 1987. The first piece of clothing he sold that year was a duster, which was a military-inspired overcoat. It sold well because of the ideas or romance it engendered. J. Peterman’s brand concept is three-fold: independent, uninhibited/relaxed and individualistic. There is always a storyline or concept in each of the brand’s product, illustrated in black and white drawing accompanied by a description in literary style in mail order catalogs. These catalogs are well-loved by the brand’s customers, and they became collector’s items among its most loyal fans.
A continuous of J.Peterman - JP: by J.Peterman providers more options for a younger age group with everyday styles while maintaining its brand philosophy. Our goal is to focus on using exceptional fabrics, precise tailoring and uncompromising craftsmanship to create high quality pieces that are seasonless and timeless which will serve you well for years to come.
Our aim is for you to become an outfit repeater. Making better choices everyday to minimize our social and environmental impact, and to do our part in building a better future by extending the life of the garments. The longer we wear what we have, the less new stuff we need. That’s why we take responsibility, beyond the point of purchase, doing our very best to keep our clothing in use and out of landfill.
We would love nothing more than creating beautiful products eith meaningful impact for people and for the planet. We collaborate with our production partners that are in compliance with several important principles based on generally accepted international workplace regulations including the spirit or language of relevant conventions of the International Labour Organization (”ILO”), the principles encompassing human resources management, health & safety, environmental practice and legal compliance including import/export and customs compliance and security standards.
