FALKE

With over a century in business, Falke has become a byword for luxury legwear. Their company mantra : “Quality for Quality’s Sake”, has informed the development of a core program that is, all things considered, perfect. The recent acquisition of a series of textile factories around Germany and Eastern Europe fuels innovation, as new minds and techniques continue to be integrated with their core business. The line is sure to keep you both stylish and comfortable where it's thought of least, but matters most.

HESTRA

We believe strongly in the idea of doing one thing, and one that thing well; this is why we stock gloves from Scandinavian glove maker Hestra. A family run business since it's founding, originally as Martin Magnusson & Co, in 1936, is run today by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons in the town of Hestra, Sweden.

IN SITU

IN SITU is GERHARD's in house label. The term "in situ" is used in art and archaeology to describe an artifact or event where it is or where it takes place, without isolating it from its original conditions. Studying an artifact “in situ” is often critical to the interpretation of the artifact and the culture which formed it. Our IN SITU program is domestically manufactured, in a small knitwear factory in Québec, using only the finest yarns available. The line is a permanent core program of high quality, well designed, fairly priced essentials.

For wholesale inquiries please contact GERHARD.
