Freemans Sporting Club was borne out of a gathering of close friends playing pool, carousing, and drinking whisky above Freemans Restaurant in New York City. The regular meetings led the group to organize trips to camp, shoot, fish, and enjoy time in nature outside the concrete canyons of New York. When Taavo Somer, the defacto leader of the troupe, created his menswear line in 2004 it was only natural that the garments be named, F.S.C., after the club, ideals, and activities that inspired them.
F.S.C. suiting is handmade in Brooklyn, New York by Union craftsmen working in the field for over 80 years. The suits are constructed from deadstock wools, unused fabric stored since it was produced in the 1950-60's – the glory days of New York City's textile trade.
