A Brief History of Penfield
Penfield was established in Hudson, Massachusetts in 1975, by Harvey Gross. A pioneering figure in the American outerwear industry since the early 1960s. Gross recognized and championed the strength of down insulated outerwear for its unique and unrivalled ability to provide strong, durable warmth and protection.
Requiring a special manufacturing process and with only a few factories in the world expert at producing down insulated apparel, Gross decided to acquire a small manufacturing plant within an old textile mill in Hudson to produce Penfield’s high quality down filled garments.
It was this stylish New England aesthetic, that helped to introduce the American outerwear look to an international market and Penfield began exporting to Japan in 1979. Since then, high-profile collaborations, innovative fabric developments together with an unfaltering commitment to quality, function and style have all caught the attention of top global retailers including Barney’s, Nordstrom, J.Crew, Ron Herman, Liberty, Harrods and key independents from Present, London to Edifice, Tokyo. The brand has steadily become recognized worldwide for its high quality, stylish apparel.
Today, Penfield is available in 30 countries worldwide and always designed For Life in the Open.
