At a young age, Bradford and Bryan Manning were both diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. This condition has inspired a special vigilance for details, a passion that carries over into the construction of their clothing line. They are both graduates of the University of Virginia and currently live in NYC.
The apparel is sophisticated, noticeable yet understated, expertly tailored, and intricately crafted: all design decisions are informed with a New York influence. The brothers are involved in every step of the creative process, from choosing fabrics to developing the design aesthetic. Their focus is on ensuring the high quality and careful craftsmanship of each article of clothing.
The production facility is in Dallas and 70% of those employed are blind or visually impaired. Despite the first-rate nature of the designs, fabrics, and assembly, the mission to cure blindnessis our first priority. All profits are donated to life-changing research to cure blindness.
