Grey Line Map is a lifestyle brand based in New York City offering clothing for Men and Women with a penchant for unique style and design. In cartography, a Grey Line Map positions the imaginary band that separates the light from darkness around the earth. It is here that night and day relinquish themselves to time and become a moment in between.
The concept of Grey Line Map defines the modern creative generation concerned with balancing the dualities of life, such as the blurred boundaries of male/female, day life/ nightlife, and logic/irrationality.

“This time around I’m making clothes I could see everyday when I go out to a bar, watch a band, or visit a gallery opening. I want to focus on the young creative people who keep the world fresh with ideas: the artists, the dancers, the lovers, the rebels, the night crawlers who work in the morning. I want the clothes to be financially accessible and wearable, but I want them to feel new and creative. I’m very excited about this label because it represents my friends and the lifestyle I landed in when I moved to New York.”
