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 product range that shows a maturity in its design restraint, but 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 a strong attention to detail in 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 furniture, 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. That will wear in rather than wear out and that leave a lasting impression of style that lacks pretense.
More than anything these are the shirts I want to wear, and I hope you will too.
