Dusk Launches High-Performance Activewear Line for the Minimalist

Everywhere you look in fashion today, there are new activewear labels popping up on every street corner – way too many if you ask Dusk founder Jordan Schiff.

It’s a genre of clothing that has become increasingly crowded and ultimately has strayed away from what activewear is supposed to be–simple–and do–perform.

Schiff wanted to create an activewear line that stayed true to the concept of simplicity without sacrificing quality. Schiff has been involved in the industry for several years and has served as an adviser to brands such as Saturday’s Surf NYC, The Elder Statesman, and Band of Outsiders. He was also a merchandising director for Vince and prior to that, Jordan was the General Merchandise Manager of American Apparel and worked as a merchant at Urban Outfitters. He decided to branch off and launch Dusk because he saw an opportunity in a market that has been overly saturated with cheap, tricked-out athletic gear that fails to get the job done.

Dusk activewear is suitable for an everyday jog around the block or a grueling marathon that tests your limits. It was designed for rigorous use without looking overly flashy and exotic because activewear isn’t supposed to be “cool.” It’s made for the purpose of performance for active people like ourselves. The brand differentiated itself from the competition by finding the perfect balance between simple, minimal, and quality basics that look good and perform wherever our active lives take us.

All of Dusk’s products are made with high-quality materials sourced directly from Italy, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States, while everything is manufactured in both the United States and Portugal. Each item is carefully designed with a minimalist touch and outfitted for performance, function, and everyday wear. For Schiff, “Dusk is a brand for people who are fanatic about running or whatever makes them sweat, and equally specific about what they buy. It’s about having the right things – not a lot of things.”

Steven Kurutz and American Giant endeavor to create a flannel 100% American made
Follow American Giant to bring flannel back to the USA

What makes the flannel shirt something that stays with us here in America? Is it the quintessential garment of the American worker? Does it make us feel as though we are driving horses across the plains in the old American West? How about working the day away, clearing logs from the Pacific Northwest to supply the entire country with the lumber needed to build houses, decks, and shop fronts? Or maybe we don't have to reach back as far to imagine the flannel renaissance of the 1990s bringing us the nostalgia of our childhood imitating Kurt Cobain on stage. Either way, the flannel is a staple of Americana, and American fashion brand American Giant has spent years attempting to bring that garment back home.

What started out as an article in the New York Times blossomed into a half-decade journey for author Steven Kurutz to chronicle AG's desire to bring flannel-making back to the shores of the United States and to save factory jobs in his new book, American Flannel. As a native of a small town in Pennsylvania, Kurutz has watched his town wither away as factory jobs were shipped overseas. For him, the book was more than a story of American determination; it was a personal connection to a quest to save his own hometown and others like it.
