“In this collection, I continue to experiment with workwear and westernwear as the foundation. They are definitely hyper-masculinized styles. I’m not trying to change that dramatically, but just to add something new… romanticism, elegance, aesthetic pleasure, that comes from an unexpected fabrication, or color, or texture. It’s pretty much been evolving that way for a while with the brand. We also wanted to honor the fact that we have noticed a significant fan base in women, and to no longer present the expectation that only men can access Krammer & Stoudt. More than ever before, these distinctions have become very blurry. We see no reason to ignore that, and feel it’s time.” – Mike Rubin, designer.
