At R&R Surplus, every stitch tells a story. Our journey began in 1988 with a simple yet revolutionary idea: to turn the sweatshirt inside out. What started as a quest for comfort and authenticity has evolved into an iconic brand known for its signature sweatshirt and innovative designs. Join us as we take you behind the seams and uncover the story of how our beloved sweatshirt came to be.

It all started with Andi and Steve Rosenstein, the visionaries behind Fitigues, which has now turned into R&R Surplus. Inspired by their love for uncomplicated luxury, they set out to create a sweatshirt like no other. By turning the sweatshirt inside out, they removed the logos and exposed the raw, reversed seams, and fabrics, giving birth to a new era of casual fashion.

But our story doesn't end there. As the years went by, we continued to push the boundaries of design and innovation. From blazers to dresses, we transformed our OG sweatshirt into a myriad of styles, always staying true to our commitment to exceptional comfort and quality.

One of the secrets behind our signature sweatshirt is our dedication to craftsmanship. Each piece is carefully crafted using the most luxurious fabrics and the highest standards of production. From the stitching to the finishing touches, every detail is meticulously executed to ensure the utmost quality and durability.

But perhaps the most important aspect of our signature sweatshirt is its versatility. Designed to be worn from day to night, from the office to the weekend, it's the ultimate wardrobe staple for the modern individual. Whether you're lounging at home or out on the town, our sweatshirt is always the perfect choice.

At R&R Surplus, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. That's why we're committed to using eco-friendly materials and ethical production practices. By taking the long way home and embracing a more sustainable approach to clothing.

So the next time you slip into our signature styles, remember that you're not just wearing a piece of clothing – you're wearing a piece of history. From Fitigues' humble beginnings to iconic status, our sweatshirt has stood the test of time and continues to be a symbol of comfort, style, and innovation.
