We’ve tried to make our online experience as thorough and painless as possible, but when it comes to buying outerwear sometimes there’s no substitute for trying it on in person. We’ve gotten a ton of request from people asking to stop by our office to see our collection, but up until now we haven’t been able to accommodate such visits.
Continuing our trend of upcycling anything we can get our hands on, we converted this unused storage room in our main office into a complete retail space. The Aether Outpost offers every item in our entire collection, including some backstocked and prototype styles.
So if you’re in the Los Angeles area and would like to stop by for a visit, shoot us an email at email@example.com and we’ll schedule a time.
6100 Melrose Avenue (Entrance on Seward)

So apparently you can’t operate an entire outdoor clothing line out of a space the size of a closet. Who would have thought! Fire inspectors may want to skip this post. These pictures were taken during the holiday crunch and show just how cramped things have gotten. Thankfully we’re almost finished building out our new offices down the street.

Things were rolling right along at the new site. We were a couple months into the project and things were falling into a nice routine. The floors had just been sealed, the windows were being installed, and the cabinetry was being built. But then, just as we were about to move on to the driveway and the overhead awning, we got a note from the friendly LA permitting office informing us that our plans, that had already approved by them once, were now not approved. With Soviet-era obtuseness they argued that the preexisting driveway was now too small for the building, even though we had done nothing to change the size of the building. After countless visits to town hall, our lead negotiator / architect David Thompson was able to barter a deal and got us back on track. We lost some time, but we’re now back to all ahead full.

After only two short years in existence, we have completely outgrown our current workspace. We’ve recently started work on our new office with architect David Thompson of Assembledge and Eric Dobkin of Dobkin Construction & Design. The original building was run-down warehouse with a beautiful wooden bow-truss roof. Throughout the renovation process we’re planning to maintain the old-school factory feel while adding elements of modern design.
