We had the good fortune of connecting with Cadogan Price and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cadogan, what do you attribute your success to?
Our people! I have been incredibly fortunate to surround myself with amazing people that love what we are building together just as much as I do. Our team’s passion for our brand resonates throughout all touchpoints of our work and as a result, this effort is creating memorable experiences for our customers. Running a business is not an easy feat and unfortunately, issues arise. The ownership taken by my colleagues and partners has helped us to continue to grow at an exciting rate while identifying and deploying solutions that resolve growing pains. As a team, we are cementing the future of the business together. 

What should our readers know about your business?
I am the most proud to be working with people that share the same passion and are just as addicted to progress. CADOGAN was built on a concept called AMPLIFY CERTAINTY. To accomplish this feeling of boldness, confidence, and composure, there is both a willingness to take risks and an appetite to be constantly overly prepared. This sense of pride and preparation in our work resonates throughout the DNA of our brand. We built CADOGAN to redefine basic menswear staples and give them an edge, a design with one twist. We accomplish this by being both creative and intentional. Our prized product is our leather jackets. Each leather jacket is designed to bring together multiple textures to create one unique piece with subtle details. We source fabrics and leathers from all over the world; we intentionally use very sharp contrasting satin, and we always hand-finish our garments with custom metal trims. When a man puts on a CADOGAN Jacket he becomes a CADOGAN Man, a man that Amplifies Certainty.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I have been living in Los Angeles for less than two years but enjoying the endless opportunities for places to visit. My friend introduced me to this awesome alcove along the Malibu Coast. I would share the name, but we don’t want a million people to be there haha. It is not a private beach, but due to the entrance, it looks private which keeps most people away. I would definitely recommend grabbing some paddle boards and heading out into the water for a few hours. If that is not your speed grab, rent some jet skis in Marina Del Rey. Other notable places to check out include Manhattan Beach or a great hike like Los Liones. For food, the options are endless. Some of my favorite places are Yamashiro and Ysabel for the views and ambiance.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
When CADOGAN was founded, I was a young bloke fresh off a career in IT Sales. I buried myself in retail and fashion education (books, webinars, meetings), but in the end, having that real-world experience is absolutely crucial. In early 2020, I met Jesse Garcia. Jesse has a rich pedigree of management with global brands and a comprehensive understanding of merchandising. Working closely with Jesse over the last 10 months has been transformative for CADOGAN. Jesse has helped us identify the wins, build on these successes, and reduce our risk in decision making. It has been instrumental in my personal growth as well as incredible for the business and our team to have somebody of this caliber help us stay true to our north star.
