In this modern world of instant gratification, vast social connectivity, and mass produced factory fashion, the ancient ways of our ancestors can easily be overlooked and under-valued. When we now have the ability to order a product from halfway around the globe with just the click of a mouse, things like quality craftsmanship and service tend to become relics of a forgotten past. At Lapstone & Hammer, our mission is to honor the artistry and traditions of the past while fully embracing contemporary culture and fashion.
Lapstone & Hammer is a premier lifestyle brand specializing in Contemporary Menswear and Premium Sportswear with an emphasis on artistry, innovation and craftsmanship. The lifestyle we espouse includes not only the goods we sell, but a complete aesthetic that is exemplified by supporting and collaborating with creators of all kinds to translate the passion they have for their crafts to the world at large... in beautiful and unique spaces that are themselves works of art.
The lapstone & hammer are tools traditionally used by cobblers to make shoes. Our name pays homage to act of creation in all of its artistic manifestations. This concept is rooted in the love and passion an artist feels for his craft. That ethos is what we embody as a brand: taking pride in presenting an immersive experience that combines high quality products while celebrating creative artistry in a one-of-a-kind retail/gallery/performance environment.
Lapstone & Hammer will combine the spirit of those early artisans with the contemporary aesthetic of today’s top creative minds and premium brands. We have established a wholly original retail experience that is essential for the cultural connoisseur, sneaker enthusiast and well-dressed gentleman, as well as being enjoyable for the casual consumer and unknowing passer-by.
