KRAMMER & STOUDT IS AN EAST COAST LABEL WITH WEST COAST COOL. DESIGNER MICHAEL RUBIN TAKES INSPIRATION FROM HIS CALIFORNIA ROOTS AND EXECUTES THE COLLECTION WITH MADE-IN-NEW YORK PRECISION.
COMBINING INFLUENCES FROM THE SOUTHWEST TO VINTAGE SOCAL SUBCULTURES, KRAMMER & STOUDT OFFER A DISTINCT PERSPECTIVE ON MODERN CONTEMPORARY MENSWEAR.
KRAMMER & STOUDT ARE PROUD TO BE MADE AND MANUFACTURED WHOLLY IN THE UNITED STATES, UTILIZING THE FINEST IMPORTED AND DOMESTIC FABRICS.
Krammer & Stoudt started in 2012, in Los Angeles. Married couple Michael Rubin and Courtenay Nearburg decided to collaborate, bringing Mike’s fine art and Courtenay’s fashion photography experience together to create a menswear line that offers upscale casual cool with a contemporary point of view.
Mike Rubin was born and raised in Southern California, is a surfer and a skater, and dabbled in the LA/OC punk scene of the late seventies and early eighties. After beginning his creative career airbrushing surfboards in high school alongside surf industry legends Hurley and Stussy, he went on to attend San Francisco Art Institute and then California Institute of the Arts, where he practiced painting, sculpture and video under the mentorship of contemporary art legend Mike Kelley. Upon graduating Cal Arts, Mike enjoyed a long career at Disney as a scenic artist and prop maker.
It’s our goal at Krammer & Stoudt to provide a collection each season that speaks to the highest common denominator of Southern California culture with intensely well-crafted menswear made in New York, for a client who is discriminating about his wardrobe, pays attention to the details, doesn’t shy away from a good dose of attitude and style, and basically, doesn’t mind being noticed. Not to mention, has a global/local awareness of the benefits of wearing garments by an American brand that were also crafted in the USA .
With Krammer & Stoudt, Mike has created a line with a disciplined aesthetic and an appreciation of vintage silhouettes that remain timelessly appealing. The result is a relaxed but crisp collection of wearable pieces.
