Craft history is the essence of Teddy Glickman and his main inspiration.
Teddy Glickman is a luxury menswear brand that pays respect to old world folk traditions by exploring techniques like quilting, appliqué and embroidery to create strongly personal narratives on ready-to-wear garments.
Teddy Glickman established his brand in 2017 after arriving in Berlin, with the intent to create interesting, craft-based, and narrative menswear. After living in Los Angeles and then moving to Berlin, his design approach reflects comfortable, Southern California ease combined with understated, European refinement. Although TEDDY is rooted in the aesthetic tradition of menswear, it is intended for people of all genders to enjoy.
Teddy Glickman gets inspiration from his great-grandfather who in 1943 founded Joan-Dell, a dress company in New York City. With an emphasis on quality fabrics and finishings, Joan-Dell thrived for many decades, and TEDDY continues this legacy. Fabrics are sourced with quality and ecological sustainability in mind, and each item is inspected thoroughly. All items are handmade in Berlin, Germany.
