To live in a world that prioritizes value, endurance and respect for our community. IXV coffee is named after my grandfather, who personified an enduring and whimsical style. He had little clothing but what he had were well-made and dapper. I still wear his Nantucket red pants and his tailor made dinner jacket, items that were crafted by hand and beautiful enough to withstand time and trend. He had two duck topiaries in front of the front door to his house, whose bills met at your waist, forcing you to the side entrance with gentle humor. IXV coffee is a nod to things that get better with age and to the time we take to create them and enjoy them. It’s no waste just because we all need to get there.

If you stand in line at NY coffee shops you can’t help but wonder where all those coffee cups and plastic drinking cups go. About 10 years ago I started bringing my own reusable coffee cup and it was so easy. I worry that saying “no waste” is practically impossible in today’s world but it's an essential goal and, like my old Yoda t-shirt, I’m not him but I wish I were and every time I wear it, to be more like him I try. Bring a bag, carry a cup and be alert to unnecessary plastic wherever you go are simple ways to make a difference. Every little bit helps and there are A LOT of us that want to help!

The world has too many clothes and the garment and fashion industry is second only to the oil industry in pollution. I don’t need to add more clothing to the landfill, but nor can I stop designing. I’ve decided to rescue things from the landfill and support makers who either use recycled materials or make things ethically and with consideration for the world and the people on it. Fight fast fashion here.
