Hailing from San Juan Capistrano, a two and a half centuries-old mission town in southern California’s Orange County, Freenote Cloth is a modern American menswear line that embraces the rich heritage of California and America, combining classic inspiration with contemporary design.
The mission district of this historic city is the ideal home for Freenote, proving that products created with emotion and from a commitment to effort and attention to detail can endure.
Founded by Andrew and Matt Brodrick in 2013, the company honors tradition by manufacturing the entire collection in the United States. The look is classic American with no trend in mind; only timeless style. The vintage-inspired clothing is made for men who respect quality and effortless style in a casual yet refined look. Well-tailored staples like denim, jackets, and knits take the aesthetic and modernize the fit resulting in products that are true examples of quality
The Brodricks broke into apparel with Electric, a premium eyewear and snowsport lifestyle brand within the Volcom® family. For nearly a decade they learned the economics of running a successful brand, to focus on high-quality production, and the importance of sourcing the right materials.
The fabrics are sourced from hand-selected textile mills from around the world. Domestic and exotic selvedge denims, fine wovens and knits are transformed into quality clothing that is built to last. Every piece in the collection is assembled with the highest level of craftsmanship for style, durability, and maximum versatility.
For the brothers, the commitment to timeless clothing comes from a nostalgia for garments worn in a bygone era. Freenote is a label that draws inspiration from authentic American culture and our most valued style icons. Every aspect of a Freenote garment is considered and countless hours are put into every piece. They want you to be proud of the clothes you wear and at American Reserve Clothing Co., we fell the same way.
With a priority placed on the quality of their garments, part of the appeal of the brand is the fact that their employees are all equally committed to the cause. They work in safe and ethical and conditions and paid fairly for their craftsmanship.
Of course, the best way to appreciate these gritty and well-executed garments is to add a few items to your wardrobe. Shop our collection and find out for yourself.
