Grayman & Company – First Of Its Kind Tactical Tailoring House 

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

Earlier this week, Greyman & Company formally launched. Although, this small, ‘boutique’ tailoring house has already been creating high-end, bespoke suits for close protection officers, police detectives, and civilians who conceal carry for the past year.

In movies like ‘Kingsmen’ or ‘John Wick’ there’s a handy tailor standing buy to create a custom suit for the hero. Daniel Craig destroyed 40 bespoke Tom Ford suits shooting Quantum of Solace, but real life James Bonds have no such options. That was the motivation, with a goal to address a complete market absence of a high-end tailored suit that is optimized for tactical requirements; elegance and function.

This suit is a purpose-made solution for those who have spent months experimenting with ad-hoc alterations with their neighborhood seamstress, and resigned themselves to purchasing only cheap disposable suits, which can be discarded when damaged.

Instead, these are the real deal. Grayman & Company suits are all made-to-measure by traditional methods, with a very small staff of experienced tailors in Shanghai’s French Concession. These are not mass-manufactured fast-fashion suits and the process is extensive, including a fitting with a mailed trial garment, Naturally, they are available with a number of options for mobility and protection, such as an ‘action back’ shoulder gusset, cut-resistant sleeves, and covert pockets.

Their publicly available fabric is by the Italian mill Loro Piana, part of the Louis Vuitton-Moet-Hennessy group, which produces fabrics long regarded as the most luxurious on earth. For vetted military, LEO, gov, and private security professionals, their industry program called ‘SFPROG’ allows a lower-priced Italian alternative, which also incorporates ripstop Cordura.

According to Greyman & Company, the base price for their Premium suit, made with the Loro Piana cloth is $1,300 USD. Customers who register with SFPROG will get a tiered discount on the premium and access to the lower priced fabric. From June 13th, the first 100 orders include a complementary gift set provided by industry partners.

Outdoor Research Adds Colors Options For Ferrosi Jacket

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

I am a big fan of Outdoor Research’s Ferrosi Hooded Jacket. It’s a great Spring & Fall soft shell, shedding wind and light rain.

While there are some great “tactical” color options, the Ferrosi is great for every day wear and the new colors offer low viz options for those who want performance as well as the ability to blend in with the crowd. On the other hand, they’ve got two Red options for times when you need high visibility like service as a Range Cadre or SAR.

The Ferrosi features a Hood, Zipperrd handwarmer pockets, Zippered chest pocket, and Thumb loops.

The Fabric is a 90D 86% nylon/14% spandex stretch woven ripstop body and hood combined with a 120D Cordura blend 91% nylon/9% spandex stretch woven shoulders and lower sleeves.

Introducing Atlas Standard

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Nestled just down the row from Crye Precision at this year’s SHOT Show is a booth with no windows and a plain, single door. Few are even allowed entry. When I stepped through the door, a scene out of the hit spy movie “Kingsman” played out before my eyes.

It was as if I had entered the Accessory Room, where new agents are outfitted. Every wall showcased weapons, clothing, and equipment.

What made this unlike the movie, is that it was real. I was the first person at SHOT Show to preview Atlas Standard.

53A5F3CA-CFE6-49E1-9CFA-7F346A20BE58

Atlas Standard is the brainchild of Crye Precision founders Caleb Crye and Greg Thompson who have worked for the past couple of years to create a travel clothing line that rivals the combat gear they had developed for CP.

Atlas Standard is a full range which includes trousers, shirts, and jackets, with each component designed to move with the wearer and work in concert with the other pieces.

Atlas Standard doesn’t just look great, it also has some special features. Caleb opened a field jacket and showed me a panel which accepts items you don’t want others to see. That could be quite a few different things. It’s travel clothing after all. What you do in it while traveling, is entirely up to you.

He went on to tell me that the line takes design cues from European clothing to help Americans keep a low profile during international journeys.

In addition to a pouch suite which interfaces with the clothing, there are several belt options. I was told, you’ll be able to get the entire “John Wick” kit.

They don’t even have a website yet, so this is just a sneak peek of what is yet to come. Look for the Atlas Standard line, in Spring 2018.

Readyman – EDC Belt Sleeve

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Readyman’s EDC Sleeve is one of things you see and say, “why didn’t I think of that?”.

img_2932.jpg

Not everyone runs around with a fully kitted plate carrier or warbelt on. Instead, we deal with day-to-day issues with whatever we have on hand. For many, this means their Every Day Carry includes more items than the average person, often in specialized gear. On the othr hand, the EDC Belt Sleeve allows you to add commonly needed gear to your trouser belt with ease. Additionally, the items sit close and parallel to the belt, resulting in a low profile. Finally, it’s stretchy, so it will hold most items secure, despite not having a flap.
