TSPTR takes its inspiration from American counterculture and the clothing they produce is designed to have meaning and a story. Their name is an acronym standing for Truth, Symmetry, Pleasure, Taste and Recognition, the five design principles of Louis Sullivan, American modernist architect and designer and “the father of skyscrapers”, whose viewpoint was that “form should ever follow function”. Taking cues from vintage fashion and classic workwear, they ensure that everything that TSPTR produce is on par with the vintage objects they are influenced by.
