Technical jackets for the everyday user. Made with components from the leading producers in its field, and of course handmade by skilled craftsmen to get a genuinely well made garment. Our philosophy is to create garments that are both contemporary and timeless, with updated iconic designs, modern tweaks and top-of-the-line materials. The garments are technical, fashionable and functional for an everyday life in the city and its surroundings.

History

The Wiggy’s project started back in 1995 duringa visit in New York City. The idea started at a local pub in a chat with a former combat pilot of the U.S .Air Force, who had been rescued in a bailout mission in the Rocky Mountains. The pilot was rescued from a river during a blizzard and according to him the Lamilite® insulated sleeping bag that was included in the survival kit saved his life. The story about the sleeping bag that saved his life made a great impression on me and gave birth to the idea of making warm jackets based on the very same Lamilite ® insulation.

Our philosophy is to create garments that are both contemporary and timeless, with updated iconic designs with modern tweaks and top-of-the-line materials. The garments are technical, fashion- able, and functional for an everyday life in the city and its surroundings. All of our materials are carefully selected to ensure a top-of-the-line quality in all of our products.

We use technical materials; every component is from the leading producers in its field and of course handmade by skilled craftsmen in Europe nto get a genuinely well-made garment. For example, we have developed a collaboration with Ventile® who originally produced a technical and functional fabric that was used during WWII, which we now use in selected jackets.

The inspiration is drawn from the world where the Lamilite® insulation has been used before; the U.S. Military and as work wear in the cold temperatures on the North American continent. Our goal is to make jackets for the everyday user, but still with a function that sets them apart from the rest of the competition. Together with the leading producers and skilled craftsmen we found a way to make it happen, and here is the result – Enjoy!
