"The vest is the unsung hero of the modern man’s wardrobe. I was tired of the stigma associated with wearing one, so I did something about it"
Meet our fearless, vest-clad leader.
This is the (Natural) Fleece
We blended Alpaca fleece with Merino wool to give you the most comfortable vest on the market. Alpaca, an underutilized and unappreciated natural fiber, has been keeping animals warm and comfortable in the Andes for the past 6,000 years, so we figured it would be good enough for you urbanites.
This is The Rittervest™
Every aspect was designed, tested, and then refined again with your needs in mind.
This is the sweater
Designed for your evolving remote working needs. 100% Alpaca. Soft as cashmere, more durable than wool.
"I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I am enjoying your Ritter vests...yes, I bought two of them..These vests are just DA BOMB! Aside from just loving the fabric, the attention to detail on every aspect of these is just impeccable. I really can't think of a single thing I would change. Well done."
