Descendant of Thieves @ 251 Elizabeth

  • Parasol Projects @ 251 Elizabeth ST 251 Elizabeth Street New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

Descendant of Thieves is an NYC based menswear brand founded in 2009 by creative duo Matteo Maniatty and Dres Ladro. It's known for its razor-sharp slim fits, unexpected ‘quiet’ details, and small batch manufacturing. Each garment is designed from the inside out and marked with a distinctive blazing yellow label. Descendant of Thieves is for the distinct man who always looks effortlessly stylish and noticeably different than those around him.

Small Batch Manufacturing

We built a small-scale boutique factory and workshop that allows us to focus on quality as well as produce small runs of product with short lead times. This allow us to keep to our mission of offering limited edition clothing that is not mass produced. Each garment lists the number of units made per style… as well as the born date. ‘We’re unique, so you can wear unique’. 

Designed from the Inside-Out

Our design philosophy is that of reverse engineering—creating from the inside out, paying relentless attention to intricacies of the interior first. This led to our trademark ‘Quiet Details’ including blazing yellow finished interiors, concealed pockets, and hidden messaging. These unexpected elements of surprise are the reason why things are not always as they seam. 

Razor Sharp Slim Fits

It’s a bit old world mentality but we obsess over every first and last millimeter of each fit. Our garments are tailored slim.
