Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Over the past few months, we’ve been following a new clothing company on Instagram called ThruDark. They are currently working on a line of 12 garments, with the first three launching in late May. We thought now was a good time to introduce Louis and Staz to our readers as well as a sneak peek of one of their new designs.

ThruDark was born out of Adversity…

Louis and Staz have spent the vast majority of their military careers within UK Special Forces. During this time, they’ve endured some of the world’s most arduous environments and terrains in extremely demanding circumstances. Consummate professionals, with incredible attention to detail, yet humble in approach.

The brand was born out of their constant requirement for the best clothing and equipment to assist them in their ‘Endeavour Through Adversity’.

“As Special Forces, we were equipped with the highest specification equipment for the operation at hand. We are always critical of the way it performs and we are at the forefront of developing it to meet our demands”.
-Louis, cofounder

The brand name ‘Thru-Dark’represents the endurance through difficult situations experienced not only by ourselves and our colleagues but to all those who encounter hardships in their own lives.

It’s been over two years from the inception of the brand and it’s beginning to come?to fruition. After traveling around the world in order to find the best factory possible, the garments are now being made in Italy.

They are manufactured to the highest standards using a diverse range of fabrics that are continually tested and developed by the founders and still serving Special Forces Operators.

“We are very fortunate that we are afforded unique skill sets that allow us to continually trial and develop our equipment both personally and through our network of Special Forces contacts across the globe. We feel we have both the credibility and passion to push this to the next level.”
-Staz, cofounder

Research & Development:
We have operated and thrived in some of the world’s most inhospitable environments. Our Special Forces background gives us first hand experience in developing our products for a broad spectrum of climates from extreme cold tundra, humid jungle to searing arid desert.

We test, evaluate and develop all of our products ourselves, that’ll do will never do. It needs to look amazing and perform even better, surviving on operations without a moments hesitation.

British Design:
Our uncompromising quest for perfection means we work exclusively with one of the worlds most talented design teams ‘Jeffrey Griffin’and ‘Griffin Studio’. Incorporating a?combination of unique ideas, advanced fabrics and technical features to create superior equipment. We are constantly developing a range of products to be utilised in Air, Sea & Land environments.
