Rag & bone was born of the shared frustrations of friends not being able to buy the type of clothing they wanted to wear. Working with skilled craftsmen, founders Wainwright & Neville learned early on about the importance of quality workmanship and careful attention to detail. These principles, along with a desire to employ individuals who take great pride in their work, became the foundation of the rag & bone philosophy. Many of the items in the collection incorporate details or trims that go back to an earlier time when a greater appreciation was placed on fine tailoring. The same amount of emphasis is put on the inside of the garments and trims, as is taken with the outward appearance of the clothing.
