Jordan in our Raglan Overcoat in Gunclub Check. Stay tuned for our Clear Out Sale starting this Friday!
Having just been in America showing the Checks collection to buyers, it reminded us about the origin of the name Checks. Being that this month also marks our two year anniversary, it was fun to look back on our beginnings. Checks was chosen as it had multiple meanings as a word, it was snappy and didn’t sound like any one thing, that gave us the freedom for Checks to be this sort of mix of our interests and background.
The all black version of our Tactical Vest is available online and in-store.
Releasing soon 👀
Sean in the Pigment Dyed Classic Hoodie.
Jordan is in New York showing the Checks SS20 collection to buyers and media, here is a glimpse at the showroom.
When starting Checks we felt it was important to develop something to go on every garment to clearly mark that each one is made in New Zealand. The made in USA labels with the little flag always carried a lot of weight to us and we wanted to instil that same pride in our garments. If you’ve just started following us or want to scratch a little deeper, we make all of our cut and sew garments domestically in New Zealand in places like Auckland, Christchurch, Morrinsville. Look for these little labels inside the garment in the side seam.

Checks Hoop Stripe rugby jerseys, made in Canada from 12oz heavyweight cotton with engineered stripes. _ Available in store and online tomorrow Thursday 30 May 10am NZST
We spent a long time figuring out how to make a Checks rugby jersey and what it should look like. _ It seemed crazy to us that a good rugby jersey couldn’t be made in New Zealand, each part was a challenge – the fabric, the trims, the manufacturer. Despite our history and passion for the sport. _ So in the end we worked with a factory in Canada that had been making tough, built-to-last rugby jerseys the same way for decades. If we couldn’t make it here it had to be the same standard we expected or better. The result will be available on Thursday.
