An avid collector of vintage shirts for over ten years, Randy experienced an epiphany when he realized that out of the hundreds of shirts hanging in his closet, he would only wear a select few. He set out on a mission to find out what traits those few shirts had in common that made them staples in his wardrobe. It quickly became apparent that fabric and tailoring reflected the cornerstone of the greatest garments. Freedman's design premise is fine tailoring, select fabrics, and unique accenting; tying together the subtleties of expression with purpose.
Randy mastered the tailoring process while crafting one of a kind, custom-made button downs for musicians and other influential people in the entertainment industry. His travels and ensuing friendships with Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Marc Ford, G Love, and Donavon Frankenreiter would make up the inner circle for the Freedman Custom Shop to spawn from. Positive feedback inspired his conscious expansion into a comprehensive men’s shirt and jacket collection, which is part and parcel to his commitment to the honest delivery of a brand with old-fashioned quality and pure feel.
Freedman’s mission resonates on this higher level, a true reflection of Americana: a renewed taste for quality construction, classic style, and pride in bringing things to life with the utmost care. Each and every shirt is handmade in the USA in limited production runs.
Today, the Freedman Brothers have teamed up with new partners to form the New Vintage Corporation. While staying true to it’s stylistic roots, the company has grown from made-to-order into a comprehensive ready-to-wear lifestyle brand. The new team is fully dedicated to preserving the very principles that made it an early success, remaining extremely proud to present each new Freedman Denim collection.
