Stockholm-based label Our Legacy began in 2005 as a line of t-shirts created by friends Christopher Nying and Jockum Hallin, who went on to release their first full collection in 2008. Find below a brand essentials list of the very best men’s Our Legacy clothing.
In the same year, mutual friend Richardos Klarén joined the brand, becoming a third co-owner. With a full collection came the need for a retail space of the brand’s own, and in 2008 the first Our Legacy store was opened on Krukmakargatan in Stockholm’s Södermalm district.
The first collections were characterised by pieces stripped of conspicuous detailing, with the emphasis placed instead on quality. Pieces developed within the first collections had a timeless approach and an effortless appeal. Our Legacy was originally, and in many aspects still is, more of a product-focused company than a fashion brand focusing on seasonal collections with transitory themes.
After a five-year period of building a more basic and classic line for men, the Spring/Summer 2012 collection marked the beginning of a new, more conceptual and experimental Our Legacy, as the brand began creating collections around defined themes with a more progressive approach to design. The focus on product remained however, with signature designs returning each season in new guises. The first Gothenburg store, together with a new flagship store on Jakobsbergsgatan in Stockholm, opened later the same year.
Since then Our Legacy has grown internationally, garnering a strong following outside Scandinavia. A fourth store was opened in London during 2014. Located in Soho, at 1 Silver Place, the Our Legacy London store is the first outside Sweden. With around 240 multi-brand stores stocking Our Legacy worldwide, the brand is today available to a global audience.
Drawing inspiration from a diverse set of global and vintage sources, their look is both timeless and fresh, with a conceptual approach that keeps them independent of trends. Unexpected tones and textures breathe life into casual wardrobe essentials like t-shirts and button-downs, quietly subverting their classic shapes and clean tailoring. The line’s Scandinavian roots especially shine through in coats and jackets that stand out while keeping it low-key.
Our Legacy fuses a minimalist aesthetic with an experimental spirit. A muted palette of brooding hues and understated tones, accented with print detailing, enhance confidently simple shapes. Fine natural materials are expertly crafted into loose fits to lend a nonchalant finish to the range. The result is effortlessly stylish and ideal for men who appreciate minimalist design with character.
