When designer Jade Howe debuted his eponymous label, Howe, in 2001, he was rapidly recognized in the industry for his distinctly West Coast perspective and tailored eye. The Howe brand began as a unification of European fashion trends and fabrications and the punk dandy aesthetic. Jade refers to this look as "cowboy punk meets English country gentlemen", and that description continues to serve as the inspiration for every garment designed to this day. In many ways Howe introduced and defined a new look for men that was stylish and masculine.
Today, Howe is a contemporary American lifestyle brand for a powerful new muse - the Indie Executive - a hard working, hard playing, creative, and career driven guy whose lifestyle has him on the move from the corner office to back stage in a flash.
With the Indie Executive in mind, Howe is the intersection of sleek and innovative silhouettes. The Howe menswear collection is refined each season with influences and inspiration from travel, music, design, and creative energies. Blending modern and progressive fabrications with ingenious tailoring, Howe produces an extensive collection that transcends "clothing" and has notably evolved the wardrobe of many men throughout the world.
