The Hundreds | Jeff Johnson of The Arrivals Talks Disrupting The Outerwear Industry


When you live in the city,  your outerwear is probably one of your most important investments. Camel topcoats, sleek bombers, weather-ready trenches, and detailed leather jackets are pretty much on steady rotation around these parts, and rightfully so; when you’re commuting so much, it’s likely the most lasting impression you’ll leave. So when Jeff Johnson of The Arrivals elbowed his way into the space with smart designs and manageable price points, the attention that he got was warranted. High quality materials and urbane influences sold on a straight-to-consumer model – which means just like with Greats, there’s a cut in prices – have quickly landed the brand on our shortlist of names to watch.
We sat with Johnson and talked about his transition from being an architect to designer, the notion of designing pieces for the long-haul, and why having a brick and mortar isn’t a priority for The Arrivals.
