It all started in March 2004 when the tight denim with the characteristic skull logo first hit the market.
But to tell this story correctly, we have to go back to November 2000 when Örjan Andersson, Adam Friberg and two of their friends opened a small second hand store in a Stockholm suburb. The store was called Weekend and was only open during Saturdays and Sundays. Despite its remote location, and thanks to a very good selection of garments, the store went well and the decision to team up with Lasse Karlsson and open up a bigger shop in central Stockholm was made. The store was a full-time concept, open every day of the week, and therefore got the name Weekday.
From the start Weekday carried high-fashion and exclusive denim brands mixed with second hand clothing - a blend that attracted young, trendy Stockholmers.
Some of the denim sold in the shop was very expensive and Örjan felt there was a need for cheaper, but still fashionable jeans. The first Cheap Monday style ‘Tight’ was born, at this point made exclusively as an in-store brand. An unwashed, very tight fitted stretch denim jean for a shockingly good price! It was an immediate success and the first 800 pairs sold out in a couple of weeks. The skull logo was made by Örjans’ friends Björn Atldax and Karl Grandin who previously had helped out with the imagery for the two stores.
In January 2005, Cheap Monday was developed into a brand with full scale collections and the distribution was extended to selected stores in Sweden as well as abroad. From the first delivery of 800 pairs of jeans in March 2004, the production has reached a new level in terms of pieces as well as in product range.
Today Cheap Monday carry main collections for men and women as well as three in-season drops/season. The collections also include, accessories, glasses, underwear and shoes.
In 2008 the brand joined forces with H&M
Without traditional marketing but with a strong idea on how to present the brand, Cheap Monday can today be found in more than 35 countries in about 1800 stores all over the world.
Despite the fast growth our original idea still remains: to offer our customers pieces that compete with high-end brands both in attitude and fashion-level as well as in quality - always at an extremely good price.
ELKA was founded in Karup by Ejnar Lauridsen in 1958. The name comes from the founder's initials (EL) and the city name (KA). The products were primarily underwear for men and women, as well as waterproof clothing. This has slowly developed into the collection we know today.
In 1979 the name was changed into the more international name "ELKA Rainwear A/S" and we have continued to work with the challenge to protect against the extremes of nature. This know-how means that we are able to sell high-quality products with excellent functionality. We offer a global service, so our customer can rest assured that they are always first in line.
Know-how is our greatest resource, and that experience, combined with the dynamism, ensures that we remain flexible and innovative. This website will give you an idea of ELKA's extensive product range, which incudes several new launches such as Dry Zone, D-Lux, EDGE and other exciting products.

HONNS gloves combine old world craftsmanship with new world technology. Each pair is meticulously made with one goal in mind: Upending the monotony of ill-fitting, monochromatic handwear.
GLOVES SHOULDN’T JUST FIT
Like the hat on your head, the shoes on your feet, or even the wallet in your pocket or purse, they should say something about their wearer. For too long the craft of handwear has been starved for taste—monochrome designs and age-old silhouettes that seem the same from store to store and brand to brand.
THREE DECADES OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
HONNS knows the glove can be much more. The brothers behind the brand represent the second generation of an over 30-year family trade. Having worked with some of the best names in the business, they now lean on that expertise to create an original collection that reimagines the glove as an essential fashion piece, not a cheap winter throwaway. Constructed using the finest leathers and textiles, HONNS gloves are designed with both work and play in mind.

Leon-Claude Duhamel watches as people dart through the Paris streets, striving with very little success to stay dry. After observing the needs of his peers, he created a simple, unisex jacket from nylon with a pocket in front. The pocket, while convenient for keeping keys and wallets dry, also allowed the jacket to tuck into itself. Duhamel capitalized on this functionality by adding an elastic band to the pocket, allowing the packed jacket to be worn around the waist.
He called the jacket “En cas”, French for “in case”, simultaneously alluding to the perpetual chance of rain, as well as its self-stowing pocket. “En cas” soon evolved to “En-K”, a nickname which was further modified to appeal to a wider, international audience. “K-Way” sounded distinctly American -- perfect for a sporty jacket that maximized freedom and mobility. And phonetically, it was virtually universally pronounceable.
Now, over 50 years later...
K-Way, quite literally, is the modern raincoat. Born from a small, simple idea, the packable jacket didn’t just solve a problem, it opened doors. Representative of freedom and flexibility, K-Way jackets let you live your life and say “yes” to adventure, no matter the weather.

There are some people who never feel the urge to leave the house. They’re content to stay in the city they came from, the couch they sit on, and the 360 degree view around them.

Whether you call it wanderlust, a love of travel or good old curiosity – the fact remains the same: Your hunger to explore cannot be quenched, no matter how many vacations or journeys you take.

Defining American style since 1830, combining outdoor with contemporary international design.
Woolrich is the oldest outdoor clothing brand present in the United States, and is a global outerwear brand leader.
The brand’s history runs parallel with America’s own, alongside the endless train tracks that were built in Pennsylvania in the 19th Century. And it was right there in Pennsylvania, in 1830, where John Rich established his first wool factory.
“Comfort, Durability, Resistance, Warmth, Simplicity” are the key words of the Woolrich brand for the last 186 years.
The Woolrich John Rich & Bros. collection reflects the Woolrich heritage by combining the brand’s historical identity with a contemporary interpretation of iconic Americana. The sophisticated take on military, outdoor, and utilitarian style results in a collection of outerwear and sportswear that redefine American style with worldwide design influences. The Original Woolrich Arctic Parka, introduced in 1972 for the workers of the Alaskan pipelines and now considered the quintessential down parka, is the worldwide-recognized brand icon and symbol.
