Growing up in a private school with a dress code, Ian never had much freedom to wear what he wanted. He quickly discovered the importance of good quality and a good fit, which still play a vital role behind the brand and wear of his clothes, and is something he incorporates into merchandise at The Stockist. “I’m always trying to find stuff that’s made better,” he says. This is especially important when it comes to purchasing a pair of jeans for Ian. “I have two to three pairs of jeans in all stages of wear. They can last as long as you let them,” he says.
