Parker Dusseau (dew-so).
Functional Menswear Essentials for the Always Ready lifestyle.
Modern life mandates travel: crosstown, cross-country and across the globe. Whether by bike, train, plane, skateboard, motorcycle or foot, we designed our clothing to keep you in motion and looking sharp with fabrics that stretch and resist moisture, stains and odors.
The modern workday also affords us opportunities for play. A two hour gap warrants a city hike, a city bike, fetch with the dog or a quick surf.
This is what it means to be Always Ready.
Parker Dusseau was started in the Fall of 2012 with a mission to create apparel for men who wanted the functionality of outdoor garments in a modern, urban aesthetic.
For inspiration, Founder Vaughn Brown drew on his Idaho and Utah roots plus time spent in dense cities around the globe. Early 80's images of his uncle (the brand's namesake) focused him on a clean aesthetic and timeless menswear staples of the day: well constructed tees, chinos, collared shirts, blazers and suits.
He arrived at Functional Menswear Essentials - proper fitting menswear staples that provided mobility and versatility for the constant motion of everyday life.
Tailored Fits, Designed for Mobility.
Fitted shirts are restricting. Finding a shirt that fits your body and your arm length is next to impossible. And if you do find the combination, you can forget about any freedom of movement.
We use a combination of feature and fabric to provide a solution. Most of our woven shirts feature our Powermesh Action Back (seen above), a discreet, stretch mesh lined shoulder gusset providing room across the yoke of the shirt. Some styles also feature a small amount of stretch (3-5%) woven into the fabric for even more flexibility.
Natural Performance Fabrics.
Plain and simple: most performance fabrics stink. Most synthetics become petri dishes for bacteria causing odors that can't be laundered out. Nature long provided us with the base ingredients for functional performance fabrics which have a superior next-to-skin feel and a subtle yet structured aesthetic.
We're committed to using natural fibers like merino wool, linen, tencel and organic cottons which offer exceptional levels of wicking, breathability, weather protection and durability.
