We are very excited to launch the Spring ACC Collection. Once again Harald managed to find some incredibly talented artists selling on the streets of SOHO. SRC crew is based out of Brooklyn, NYC, they specialize in graffiti-style artwork. Founded in 2008 and started as a two-man team consisting of Jake “Drip” McDonough and Eric “Wics2” Cheung. Upon the passing of Drip, the team consists of Julian “Skare” Weiss and the original co- founder, Wics2. They are notorious for selling their artwork on the street and have gained recognition in graffiti and design cultures, having done work for Sid Chidiac, Liaison, Go Gangrene. Each member of the crew has their own style, and when mixed together create a plethora of visually-stunning imagery. They can always be found on Broadway and Spring St, in SoHo, NYC.” Check it all out here !

Friday, March 11, 2011 - WOW! My boy's got style!
Appaman is excited to launch our ambitious collection that has every intention of growing from season to season. It's called "Appaman Fine Tailoring" and it's stylish, dapper and just what the mothers ordered.
We figured that everybody has that special event, and shopping for suits and blazers is just no fun unless you add a lil' sumpin' sumpin'. We did, and here is the first of that result.
We have the cutest Mod Suit. It is a Euro slim cut with gorgeous lines and yummy fabric. The lining alone will make you weep - The all over monkey print with red piping just completes the look perfectly.
Tim Gunn would, without a doubt, be impressed. This must-have piece is in stores now so go on and get yourselves one for your man.
Thursday, February 24, 2011 - Lost in Translation with Appaman
Harald just returned from an incredibly successful trip to Tokyo.
We were invited to participate in the Playtime Tradeshow in Tokyo and jumped at the opportunity. Our distributor BREEZE,INC. couldn't have been more welcoming. They showed us around, fed us amazing and interesting meals, introduced us to many new accounts and educated us in the ways of the Japanese.
We are so grateful to be back in business with BREEZE and are thrilled to introduce Appaman's Fall 2011 collection to the Japanese merchants. They were enthusiastic about the collection and are excited to get it into the stores.

Friday, January 14, 2011 - Making of a Brand
This very informative interview was a nice news piece on Appaman. Something we consider news.
"Ever wonder how some brands just have it? Worn by every kid in the neighborhood not to mention every kid in Hollywood? Us, too. Which is why we sat down with the lovely Lynn Husum of Appaman and asked her a few burning questions we had about the brand she launched with her husband, 7 years ago..."

Wednesday, December 22, 2010 - Alyssa's Pay it Forward Contribution
For my part of “Pay It Forward” I wanted to choose a local charity that was making an impact on a global scale. Little did I know there is an amazing organization working to make a difference directly across the hall from us.
It is called Pencils of Promise (PoP). They work in the developing world, partnering with local communities to build schools and provide education for children who have no other opportunities. Right now more than 400 children are receiving an education through this program, and by the end of this year they will have provided 216,000 instructional hours for all those children in need.
You can find out more about all the great things Pencils of Promise is doing on their website pencilsofpromise.org. And now I will go and hand deliver our donation!
Monday, December 20, 2010 - Maryam's Pay it Forward Contribution
Its hard to choose a single charity being that we have a world in need of so many different things. I had a hard time deciding until I came across Mercy Corps.
Their goal is to provide regions stricken with crisis or poverty with the knowledge and resources to build sustainable communities. I believe that education is the strongest policy in any healthy community and Mercy Corps works directly with locals to provide long-lasting results through teaching, first and foremost.
From helping create small businesses for women, to providing farming training, as well as health and education services for children, they are helping build endurable communities all over the world.
Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - Summer's Pay it Forward Contribution
As we all know, one of the most basic human necessities is fresh water - unfortunately people in many developing countries do not have this luxury. I chose to donate to charity: water because I believe every person should have access to clean drinking water in their community. Through water projects many lives can be saved by increasing sanitation, eliminating bacterial disease and creating irrigation systems for farming. Installing a new well also makes a community stronger, as well as elevating equality, education and economy within.
I am extremely proud to say that my donation will provide fresh water to 15 individuals for at least 20 years. My donation is going to charity: water. Check out their website they have numerous ways to give and maybe one of these ways will appeal to your need to pay it forward.
