Stòffa’s co-founders on consumer culture | #018

This week, Aleks sits down with Agyesh Madan and Nicholas Ragosta, the co-founders of New York based brand, Stòffa.

Stòffa is known for creating refined made-to-measure outerwear, knitwear and trousers, offering clients the backbone of their casual wardrobe with superior attention to quality and fit. Moreover, Stoffa is a brand with a conscience, Madan and Ragosta have worked smart for the past nine years to develop a brand that produces its clothes ethically, sustainably, and to put what they call the ‘thoughtfulness’ back into menswear retail.

This episode goes deep: we discuss the problems and pitfalls of consumer culture, explore why our society needs to challenge the idea that convenience is a luxury, and we unpick why Stòffa tries so hard to go against the grain.


HandCut Radio is produced in collaboration with Birch, a London and New York based creative agency. Our theme music is by Joe Boyd.
