About Us

ASKET is an online-only menswear brand founded in 2015 in Stockholm with the mission to free wardrobe essentials - the garments we actually use and love the most - from fashion and bring them back to basics.

Essentially Different

At ASKET we challenge every design and industry rule in order to create wardrobe the world's best wardrobe essentials. Garments free of compromises, but full of love. How?

One garment at a time we're building a permanent collection of premium, better fitting, essentials that are designed to stand the test of time. 

With a limited assortment of timeless items and a direct-to-consumer approach we're able treat our garments as software: A released garment isn't necessarily a finished garment. In our strive for perfection we analyze customer data and feedback, tweak and gradually improve our pieces over time. And since all that really matters when it comes to wardrobe essentials is quality and fit, we not only work with some of the world's leading manufacturers and finest materials, but also offer our garments in an extended, revolutionary size system, designed to fit more men better.

Last but certainly not least, we're building ASKET based on True Honesty. Since we don’t have anything to hide, we’re radically honest about our manufacturing processes, working conditions and even production costs. We invite our visitors to step behind the scenes and into our factories to learn that garments are handcrafted from precious resources and should be seen as investments, not as disposables.
