Nice to meet you, my name's Bob.
Product of Bob Scales has been slowly evolving over the last 20-odd years; a persistent idea that has simply refused to go away – create a menswear range that shows the design restraint of a grown man and spares no expense on textiles and build quality. The designs are inspired by the thrift store finds I trolled for as a kid, but heightened by the best, imported fabrics I can find along with made-in-the-states manufacturing.
Rooted in work wear functionality, but leveraging refined silhouettes, the line represents an aesthetic that I believe most people look for once they have graduated past the trends of youth. There is a Quiet Quality that almost always emerges from the most beautifully designed objects, automobiles, and apparel; a subtle beauty that may only surface after spending some time with an item. This is the goal, to create pieces that compliment rather than overshadow. To produce product that will wear in rather than wear out and to leave a lasting impression of style that lacks pretense.
More than anything these are the shirts I want to wear, and I know you will too.
