JAMES PERSE was founded over 20 years ago in Los Angeles, California by its eponymous designer. James’ signature design philosophy and aesthetic – the pairing of elegance and sophistication with simplicity and comfort – is borne from his passion for minimalist architecture and (as a Los Angeles native) his intimate familiarity with west coast indoor / outdoor living and the casual clothing inspired by it. This approach has been applied to each step in developing the JAMES PERSE brand, which has become synonymous with Southern California life and style.

At the Company’s inception, James’ mission was to bring an elevated look and feel to unique baseball caps and basic tees. Two decades later, the Company has expanded to producing full lines of its famously soft and meticulously constructed modern classics for men and women, as well as home furnishings, accessories, and limited edition goods.  Our collections are sold in over 40 JAMES PERSE boutiques, as well as in fine department and specialty stores around the world.
