The North Face
Founded in San Francisco in 1968, The North Face specialises in outdoor clothing and equipment. Established by Douglas Tompkins and Kenneth ‘Hap’ Klopp, The North Face was inspired a hiking trip, taking its name from the north face of a mountain – the coldest and hardest part to climb.
Adventure is at the heart of The North Face, with its high-performing clothing being the go-to for athletes and hikers around the world. Its sleek, contemporary designs, meanwhile, make this brand as suitable for the city street as it is for the mountain top.
