Founded in 2010, DSPTCH is a San Francisco-based outfit that specializes in delivering highly calculated, built-to-last carry solutions and accessories for modern commuters, travelers, and adventurers. And after more than a decade in operation, and the same team behind DSPTCH is now using the company’s guiding principles and proven design philosophy to create a new apparel brand known as Corpsware.
Putting a contemporary spin on traditional workwear items, Corpsware’s entire catalog is aimed at craftsmen, artisans, and other customers that work with their hands, describing its clothing as “utility garments.” Combining cutting-edge construction techniques with tried and true materials, Corpsware’s clothing has been engineered to offer years if not decades of regular use — not unlike DSPTCH’s bags. Also similar to the SF brand’s bags is Corpsware’s minimalistic yet modern design language and heavy use of blacks, grays, and earth-tone colors. And, while these garments aren’t cheap, they offer pretty stellar value considering their overall quality and ability to be used season after season and year after year.
Comprised of 13 items in total, Corpsware’s inaugural drop includes a short-sleeve T and a long-sleeve T that are both made from a 250-gsm combed cotton jersey material, as well as a crewneck sweatshirt and a hoodie that are both composed of 400-gsm heavyweight cross-grain cut fleece and pieced together using flatlock seam construction. Anchoring this collection is a work vest, a shirt jacket, a pair of work pants, and a middleweight work jacket that are all cut from 12oz cotton duck canvas before being lined with 4.7oz satin nylon fabric. Rounding out the collection is a cotton and Spandex Stretch Ventile work shirt, a 10oz cotton duck canvas six-panel hat, a 12oz cotton duck canvas work apron, a hook belt, and a Cobra buckle belt — the latter two of which feature 1.5” Herringbone seatbelt webbing.
The first Corpsware Utility Garments collection is available now, with pricing starting from $29 and going up to $250.
