OUR BEGINNING

esby apparel was founded in 2014 by designer, Stephanie Beard, and features quality clothing for women & men with menswear mentality - and by menswear mentality, we mean we like to buy well-made clothes and wear them often. esby apparel is proudly made here in the USA of high quality fabrics sourced world-wide. our clothing is fit to flatter with an emphasis on comfort and wearability.




ABOUT OUR PROCESS

esby is designed in Austin and produced in los angeles and dallas. each piece has been meticulously thought out and well-planned through our design process. we start each season about 12 months before release. we sketch out and review each detail, pick the perfect fabric, and begin developing the pattern. our patterns and samples are tweaked after multiple fit sessions until the ideal fit is reached.

meanwhile, we research and develop the perfect wash for each fabric so our clothes fit the same each time you put them on. once we've reached our desired fit and feel, we begin the production cycle. our fabrics are shipped to the factory and cutting and sewing begins. shortly after, we examine our pre-washed goods for quality and then send to wash. after wash, the clothing is re-examined and ready for wear. you can find our clothing in our online shop, our Austin Flagship, or at one of our stockists nation-wide.
