About two years ago my girlfriend Marie came to me with an idea- to start a fashion brand that focuses on doing one thing really, really well- and that one thing is blazers. Most women have a few in their closet as staples- for work, with jeans on the weekend, over a dress on a date- but she and I both could not find ones that fit really well and were made of fun fabrics AND weren’t $800 or more. So for the past two years Marie and I have worked from sketches, to refining the fits many, many times( to the dismay of our amazing pattern makers), took trips to LA and NYC to source fabrics and buttons and linings and now IT’S LIVE- please meet Two Penny Blue!
All the jackets are made in the USA (New York City, to be exact) by the pattern makers that also work on labels such as Helmut Lang and Alice and Olivia. The cuts are meant to be variations on classics with attention to every little detail (from functioning sleeve buttons to flattering hemlines and vents). The fabrics consist of silks hand dyed in India and woven linen and cotton from Italy. The whole idea is to keep these cuts season after season (while adding some new ones) but switch up the fabrics and details- that way once you find a jacket you LOVE the fit of, you can get it in season appropriate fabrics! Nothing worse than when a company stops making a classic, great fitting piece, right? But each season’s fabrics are limited edition- so once they are gone, they are GONE. So hurry! :)
And it’s important to note that a wonderful component of our company is that for every blazer you buy we will donate a school uniform to a girl in Africa. It’s really important for us to give back- read more about it HERE!
We love them. And sure hope you do too. (And just wait until you see the packaging! :) )
