#1 Who is C.P. Company?
C.P. Company was founded by Bologna born Massimo Osti. The Italian brand, originally known as Chester Perry from 1971, had a name change in 1978 to C.P. Company to convey a more mature feel for the brand. Well established as Chester Perry for specialising in screen printed t-shirts, C.P. made a reputable name for itself as the first brand to use garment dyeing techniques in the mid 70’s. The dying technique saw uncoloured technical fabrics dyed as the last stage of the production process creating unique depth to the design instead of using pre dyed materials. The brand evolved with it’s name change to become instantly recognisable for it’s modern take on vintage military ready-to-wear designs and continues to stick to its roots, using quality Italian fabrics in every design. Not only known for their goggle jackets, C.P. Company offers a selection of menswear including C.P. Company shorts, hoodies, t-shirts and more.
