Howard Sheer & ecru

Howard shares how New York City-based Ecru works: from the company's focus and structure to its heart in the design process and the complexity of sourcing and manufacturing around the world. Anecdotes about hits and misses, including an improbable skirted legging, round out a fascinating conversation about hard-won success in the clothing business!

Meet Howard Sheer, the man behind the Ecru jeans and shirts in our closets. From an early start in buying and wholesaling, Howard developed an array of fashion industry-specific and entrepreneurial skills that led, eventually, to Ecru.
