Ten c is the good looking baby spawned from Allesandro Pungetti and ex Stone Island designer, Paul Harvey. It is the fruitful product of overwhelming testing and research, not just a half hearted project because the guys fancied going solo. This is more than that. This is the 'Forever' collection.
Paul Harvey is a man incredibly close to home as he spent many years working in our wonderful hometown of Middlesbrough at the infamous ICI plant. From ICI to eventually being handed Massimo Osti's torch his accomplishments as a technical designer are almost too many to list. Following this he left a gaping hole in the world of outerwear whilst he pursued other avenues before returning to the pencil and paper and getting down to business under the Ten c moniker.
Paul Harvey's storied career at Stone Island and Pungetti's time at Esemplare seems to have given them everything they need to fly their own flag and be emperors themselves. The aim of the brand is to "look beyond what you are told to see and to value what is truly there" and this is communicated strongly through the solid collection which we are presented with.
Small but perfectly formed, it is comprised of seven pieces crafted from an unusual Japanese jersey that ages uniquely over it's lifespan. Ten c liken their outerwear to raw denim in the sense that it tells the story of the wearer and becomes their second skin if you will. The idea is simple, one jacket should be enough. Although you are able to choose from colours and additional interchangeable linings you are encouraged to invest in just one jacket and make it "exclusively yours" by allowing it to naturally shape to you, the wearer.
The unique 'OJJ' fabric is made and sourced from Japan but hand finished by the Ten c brand in Italy. It is alarmingly soft to the touch but boasts waterproof qualities ensuring it is fit for everyday weather as well as everyday wear. We're one of only a small number of stockists with access to the brand so it is definitely a good idea to move fast when it comes to this one!
