Frankly, there are some articles that we carry that no matter how many high-quality images are used and finely crafted words are professed, the portrayal does not effectively translate to an online environment. Ten C is considered by us, our clients, and industry veterans to be one of those productions that, unless experienced firsthand, might seem interesting, unique, and cool, but the degree of significance inherent in those adjectives is insufficient until one sees, feels, and wears one of their pieces. While we’ll attempt to capture the essence and tell you about how exceptional these garments are and the brand development is, beware that surely such descriptions will fall short of the reality.
The brainchild of Paul Harvey and Alessandro Pungetti, who are both responsible for the ascent of Stone Island into the luxury technical streetwear scene and the driver of the apocalyptic inspired C.P. Company, which many graduated heritage collectors would be familiar with, Ten C is their personal tour de force. From the development of the proprietary Original Japanese Jersey into perfectly adapted military inspirations of modern interchangeable masterpieces, the Ten C arsenal of styles is deftly designed with simplicity with the goal of establishing lifetime new-classic garments. The nucleus of the brand is the technical waterproof OJJ fabric that has the evolution characteristics of traditional and natural heritage materials like selvedge denim, worsted knitwear, or full-grain leather in that it molds to the body through prolonged and heavy wear. Uniquely, this synthetic fabric will develop a patina that catalogs its journey from an exclusive dying method that yields saturated, pantone-perfect colors that will further the garment's evolution by fading, creasing, and becoming crazy cool.
From the fabric's precision knitting process, highly specialized garment dying at extreme temperatures, and handcrafted tailoring with workwear construction, to military grade hardware, there are a host of elements and production packed into each individual piece. However, the pure fact is that until you have one, none of that elaboration really matters. Hopefully by now you know we are extremely exacting in our selections, presentation, and position. We value your trust and are doubling down on this one: There is nothing like it, it's worth every penny, and if you take the risk it will yield rewards. You will be remarkably impressed from the first time you touch, wear, and style any one of these pieces. And, we attest that with each expedition you'll be overcome with the sentiment that your Ten C is simply special.
