Move over Pop-up Flea. Take a seat NorthernGRADE. Keep on being in Canada Gentleman’s Reserve*. There’s a new US-made menswear pop-up in town, and it’s called Confirmed Stock. Launching at the end of this month in Baltimore, MD, Confirmed Stock promises “an expertly curated and gentlemanly selection of high quality (and mostly American-made) goods from some of the best brands around” (seriously though, the brand list actually is pretty fantastic). Figuring this would be right up the alley of most of you readers, I’ve asked the event’s co-founder, Chris Walbert, to give us the seven vendors / products he’s most excited about. Check out his picks after the jump.
We’re truly excited for all 18 brands, and the unique offerings they’ll be bringing with them to Confirmed Stock. Some of the things I’m most looking forward to are…
Corter Leather will be crafting leather belts to size on the spot. He’ll also be unveiling a number of new products at the event.
Ruell and Ray uses deadstock denim to create jeans that are “one of a kind and forever.” Proudly made in the USA, and some of the best jeans we’ve ever seen.
At Confirmed Stock, people will be able to pre-order from the 2012 Michael Bastian for Randolph Engineering collection. It’s great to see this iconic American brand creating new and innovative products with one of today’s top menswear designers.
Greenwich Vintage has one of the most amazing collections of vintage and deadstock clothing and shoes we’ve ever seen. Also, one of their founders is a master cobbler, so they’ll have some really unique customized footwear with them as well.
One of our favorite brands right now, CXXVI will be bringing a killer collection of US-made clothing, accessories and knives.
Fischer Clothing is an exciting young brand that puts a great modern twist on menswear classics.
And lastly, we’ll have representation from what we think are four of the best menswear stores the east coast has to offer – Washington D.C.’s Federal, Boston’s Ball and Buck, New York’s Two Inch Cuffs and Baltimore’s own Sixteen Tons.
Confirmed stock will be happening at the 2640 Space in Baltimore, MD on April 28th. For more info about the event, check out the Confirmed Stock website.
