Originally established in 1972 to create military-grade cotton drill pants and painter’s overalls, American label Stan Ray has been designing well-made, long-wearing garments for almost five decades. The brand, with the values of hard work, durability and quality in mind, continue to produce every single item in their family owned and run factory located in Crockett, Texas ‒ indicating how their virtues established way back then persist in shaping how they design and deliver their pieces today.
When you think of the classic workhorse aesthetic, pocket-laden utility shirts, classic t-shirts crafted from hard-wearing cotton jersey and structured twill trousers that deliver a sturdy outfit base spring to mind. Stan Ray imbue this passion for work and wear into each garment they create, offering a premium collection of anything-but-basic staples that not only adhere to the less-is-more rule of modern dressing but also remain versatile in an ever-changing menswear market. Comfortable cotton crew-neck tees and pure denim button-downs are presented alongside rigid drill pants ‒ all equipped with handy compartments and often dynamically topstitched for a stylish finish.
How do you know you’ve got a Stan Ray? You look to the logo, of course. Whether stitched at the chest, tacked onto the waist or embroidered front and centre, each garment boasts instantly-recognisable branding that gives the garment a real working class man edge.
