NEED begins with the desire to create clothes for our friends, the people who motivate us to do what we do. As designers, photographers, authors, and creators, they inspire us with their passion and work. We designed NEED to fit into their lives by creating garments that are refined, hard-working and stylish.
A slim silhouette and mock neck add interest to the essential white tee.
Collection 01 was designed and crafted in Los Angeles, California. The City of Angels is the hub of the American garment industry, and NEED reaps the benefits of the culture of expertise and craft that the city has to offer.
Inspired by flat cut uniforms, these cropped poplin tops combine functional detail and clean lines.
Long before our two Need Supply Co. locations opened there, we had a deep connection to the culture and people of Japan. As a manifestation of this relationship and respect for Japan, Collection 01 garments are constructed of mainly Japanese cottons, twills, and jerseys.
