Cynthia Brothers

Craftsmanship From Ridgewood Queens, New York

Cynthia Brothers is a creative initiative by Nick Parker from Ridgewood Queens, New York. Since 2018 he’s creating one-of-a-kind pieces made with discarded and leftover materials. It’s a self-taught experimental and iterative process that results in outstanding pieces. One of them is this highlighted long patchwork jacket.

Made From Leftover Fabrics

This Cynthia Brothers jacket is assembled from the heavier-weight material scraps and off-cuts leftovers from the construction of previously made garments. All the leftover fabrics are collected and assembled in the studio over many months.

The scraps are pieced together and sewn according to their shape to minimize further waste, resulting in a random colorful pattern. The jacket is made with lining, and even the inside pocket is made with a patchwork pattern.

Details Of The Jacket

The jacket has two large front top-loading patch pockets with patchwork lining. It features a breast pocket on the wearer’s left-hand side, an inner pocket on the wearer’s right-hand side, two large lower pockets on the front, and utility snaps. There’s a handwritten Cynthia Brothers label, gusseted shoulders, bartacks, and triple-stitched seams (all single-needle construction).

Within the collection are also denim styles available, and you can even contact Nick for custom orders too.
