Another brand introducing a premium line to their oft thought of street wear label is Freshjive with their new RMK collection. Named and designed by Freshjive’s owner, Richard Mendel Klotz, the apparel focuses on traditional American styling, which to him is the original influence of street styling. This season’s collection is focused on denim, button up woven and flannel shirts, and finer weight custom made t-shirts. Most of the collection is made in Los Angeles, including Freshjive’s own in house garment manufacturing facility, which has been in family operation since the mid 1970s.

Woven shirts are made of high count cottons and wools, in traditional styling. The jeans are available in various high quality denim, also in a more traditional narrow fit. Some attention to detailing with the jean trims, including a one rivet design with RMK’s favorite rebuttal in an extremely small typeface which reads, “DON’T FUCK WITH MERMK”
