My story -

Born and raised in San Francisco, I grew up surrounded by a rich and diverse environment. Over the years, I've seen a lot of what I do and don't like and have developed my personal aesthetic to what it is now.  About a year ago, I completed the Industrial Design program at California College of the Arts and am currently working in San Francisco as a junior product designer. I've been fortunate enough to pick up new skills and develop existing skills through the people I’ve met and places I’ve been. Self taught in the world of soft goods, I've adapted the technical knowledge from my background to prototype and iterate through designs and construction. This brand is a materialization of my aesthetic applied to classic, essential products. No fuss, no frills -- we're bringing clear, refined product to allow our patrons to be a better you.


Our values -

- Design for functionality, without being overtly technical
- Choose proper, quality finishes
- Promote individuality



ALLIED GOODS is an American lifestyle brand dedicated to designing and developing utilitarian goods for an enriched life. Our products draw inspiration from the understated aesthetics, technical tradecraft, and industrial quality found in military design. We focus on combining high functionality with refined aesthetics to produce the most optimized products. Our development process exposes opportunities which are then distilled into the best products for our patrons. We're on a mission to create perfomance goods that enable you to be a better you. 

Through the life of our brand, we're looking to produce essentials. Our initial collection will feature the following:

1. Duffle/Weekender
2. Backpack
3. Monochrome T-shirt
4. Hooded sweater

Over time, we'll be releasing additional pieces of the system, addressing needs in areas such as travel, daily accessories, and technical apparel.

Target - 

Our product is designed and developed for individuals looking for the best product they can buy. Our products are designed to be refined and sophisticated and, for the most past, season-agnostic. Our patrons are buying product they can use for years to come. The silhouettes and treatments we provide make a subtle statement. 


In the future... ALLIED: LABS

We encourage collaboration and welcome partnerships. We're about joining forces to create the best product. To keep to our roots of process-driven design, our LABS division is open to private labels, collaborations/partnerships, and experimentation. The results are custom, one-off or low production runs of product.
