Who We Are

OUR STORY

Whatever Man Lifestyle was born from an unforgettable experience on a trip to North America. More specifically, in the famous resort of Whistler, Canada. During our stay there, long-lasting friendships were formed and memories of exciting adventures were made. Snowboarding, skiing, travelling, parties and much more shaped our time there and laid the foundation for the Whatever Man - Lifestyle we want to share with you every day.

Live it. Wear it. Share it.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Nachhaltige Entwicklung

SUSTAINABILITY

Organic cotton: The materials used are produced sustainably and wherever possible, organic materials are used. Organic cotton requires no harmful chemicals in production and needs less water to grow. Small creatures have more living space, which in turn improves the quality of the soil where the cotton is grown. The materials used correspond to level 3 of the SteP certification by OEKO-Tex.

LOCAL

Developed and designed in Switzerland: Our designs are born in the heart of Switzerland - in Lucerne. Our different design ideas are put on paper and critically examined before coming to life. We make sure to carefully decide what designs fit to our lifestyle and represent our community. We cultivate the closeness to our communities, so that the Whatever Man lifestyle can be passed on to the next circle of friends, and on to the next, and the next.

Verantwortung

RESPONSIBILITY

Made in Portugal: All our clothing is made in Portugal with fair and controllable production environments. Both the materials and production methods used meet the third (and highest level) of STeP certification from OEKO-Tex. This means that the social responsibility standards as well as the health and safety measures comply with the EU - defined conventions. We are aming to also produce our accessories and headwear in Europe in the future.

What does whatever man mean to you? It's a very intense hobby! For me it Whatever Man Lifestyle means spending good times with good people and having unforgettable adventures together... And these adventures become the biggest inspirations for my work at Whatever Man.
Favourite Whatever Man Adventure? Definitely the trip through America and Canada with all my best friends where the foundation for Whatever Man Lifestyle was laid. Wild, free and thirsty for beers. It was an incredible time and maybe the best of my life so far.
You ride your: gravel bike in the summer and when it gets dirty my mountain bike. In the winter I ride my splitboard away from the overcrowded ski resorts. Yes, we earn our turn!
Favourite Tune? The choice is endless but “What It's Like” by Everlast and “Worst Comes To Worst” by Dilated Peoples have probably been my most loyal companions through the years.
Most beautiful place you’ve been? Somewhere in nature in a sleeping bag under the night sky.
One day I would like to be?
Back in New Zealand or Alaska to experience the endless wild nature.... maybe with my own family and the little ones.
Your favourite quote? “Our lives have become digital. Our friends, now virtual. And anything you could ever wanna know is just a click away. Experiencing the world through secondhand information isn't enough. If we want authenticity, we have to initiate it. We will never know our full potential unless we push ourselves to find it. It's this self-discovery that inevitably takes us to the wildest places on earth.” Thanks Travis Rice for these words.
