CEO, Chris Vroman explains: “In creating this brand, we wanted to make sure we stood for something, told an authentic story and designed a piece of clothing that was special. The Exley man is a part of a new generation of consumers who care about the reason things exist, how his clothing is made and is intelligent about his purchases. We have laid a groundwork based on integrity, where our product speaks for itself.”

Exley’s clothing should be both timeless and functional. Created with precision and attention to detail all items are made out of top quality materials such as Permaloft for insulation, Staywax for weatherproofing and Riri zippers for a finishing touch.
