Top garments evolved from undergarments. The one-piece union suit underwear was cut into separate top and bottom garments. With or without buttons, they were adopted by miners but soon gained popularity in the United States when they were issued by the U.S. Navy for tropical climates.
They had numerous benefits which fueled their popularity- a good fit, easy to clean, and cheap. Top garments encompass the spirit of American style and were the first clothing option among civilians as a stylish, unique and comfortable way of dressing.
Civvies are now part of our everyday lives, they express our individuality. Civvy has a clear philosophy- we care about creating garments to suit different shapes and personalities because we believe people deserve clothes as unique as their identity. Which is why we promise to provide you with the tools to make the brand you always dreamed of.
