About us


We believe in visual culture.
When someone makes something with quality and meaning, it inspires others to start something greater, because all amazing ideas are built from good inspiration.

We do this for the people who hold bold ideas, those who are one step ahead and understand there is no finish line. We do this for those who endure defeat to achieve a 
lasting victory.

Our message is in details, 
quality, and graphics. We use clothing as a canvas to create a wearable visual culture for those who think bold & make it heavy.

U.S.A, produced in limited quantities. B&H draws inspiration from the city, architecture, design, typography, art & photography.

raise the bar on visual inspiration for everyone.
