first_img A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America For most active people, finding comfortable, tailored clothing capable of withstanding a diverse array of elements has always been a pipe dream. Either you sacrifice comfort for function, or sacrifice performance for style; no matter how you slice it, it rarely works. Enter San Francisco-based company Parker Dusseau, a brand driven by owner Vaughn Brown’s passion for designing elegant and diverse clothing that’s as ready for adventure as it is for a boardroom. An active man himself, Brown crafts each product with the simple goal of giving people the flexibility to fulfill their own passion for an active lifestyle, while remaining sophisticated and stylish.Related: Keeping dry and looking fly with Mizzen+MainBrown, a native of Brooklyn lured away by the active lifestyle befit of the West Coast, attributes much of the company’s inspirations and groundwork — along with its namesake — to his uncle, Parker Dusseau. When he describes his uncle, words like adventurer, gregarious, traveler, and active come up often, and it’s wholly evident these traits drive the brand’s style. Every item on their site encapsulates Dusseau and Brown’s penchant for freedom, style, function, and practicality. Achieving this, in Brown’s own words, is absolutely paramount to the success of the company and the credo by which the brand operates.It’s a clothing line that makes people stop you on the street — or on your bike commute to work — and ask what it is you’re wearing; it commands attention. What Brown’s done with Parker Dusseau is provide handsome, timeless clothing for the urban outdoorsman in everyone. To get a better look at the man behind the brand, and the company itself, we caught up with Vaughn Brown to chat San Francisco, why he doesn’t consider himself ‘outdoorsy,’ and of course, his uncle.When did you launch Parker Dusseau and what’s your day to day role like? I started the company in late 2012. My day to day role is really everything — design, development, managing our direct business and working with new retail partners.Talk about the process of launching Parker Dusseau.I started doing my research in late 2012 and then launched the brand about a year later. There are a number of reasons I started the company – the primary reason was that as an active guy who has an affinity for an urban aesthetic, I wanted to create a line of product that held fashion and performance on equal planes. The clothes I wear out on the street should perform at the same level as the clothes I wear to work out in. As a busy guy, I also want to be able to have clothes that I can wear day in and day out without having to constantly run things through the laundry.Aside from solving a functional issue, my main reason for starting the brand was to share with the world the amazing man that was my uncle, the namesake of the brand. He was an active, gregarious, funny, and spirited guy who was spontaneous and adventurous. He came from one of what I feel is the last generations of gentleman in this country — kind, gracious, giving, altruistic, and passionate. He chased his passions with fervor and drank with an unquenchable thirst from the fountain of life. He was also dressed well, always.It’s clear San Francisco is a giant part of what the brand is, how has the city shaped the direction of the company?I moved here 10 years ago and knew it was a place I wasn’t going to leave for a long long time. I had been living in Brooklyn and developed a deep love for dense urban environments but I also had this longing to get back West (I grew up in Idaho) so I could pursue my athletic passions — snowboarding, cycling, surfing, and exploring high peaks. This was also where my uncle lived and so the city holds a ton of physical inspiration for us.What are the company’s biggest influences when designing new products?Really the quest is about offering customers a line of performance clothing that doesn’t look performance or ‘outdoorsy’ in any way. I’ve never identified with the ‘outdoorsy’ look but by all means, most people would consider me ‘outdoorsy’. So, the challenge is to find that place where we’re making product which outperforms entrenched outdoor brands, but offers it in a form that looks as good in Paris as it does in the Sierra.What’s the future for Parker Dusseau look like? I have huge dreams for the brand but for now, I’m trying to take it a day at a time!— To get a look at the entire Parker Dusseau collection, head on over to the brand’s website.  7 Best Gym Bags to Haul All Your Workout Gear West Skincare Is the Best New Grooming Product Line for Active Guys Zach Klein Is the Reason We’re All Obsessed with Cabin Porn All the New Whiskies You Need to Drink This Fall Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more


“And although around 75% of the global population of Manx shearwaters breed on UK islands there were only 297 pairs on Lundy in 2001, way short of its potential considering its size and available habitat.” The UK is home to an estimated eight million breeding seabirds, with up to half of the EU populations of seabirds breeding here. View latest offers from National Trust Helen Booker, senior conservation officer for RSPB in South West of England, said: “This study clearly shows how quickly and positively seabirds respond to the removal of non-native predators.”Of course, we had anticipated major population increases when the project was launched, but the scale of this recovery has far exceeded our expectations.”Lundy warden Dean Jones added: “It is exciting to see this level of recovery in Manx shearwaters, one of our most important seabirds.”In spring the island comes alive at night with the sound of these amazing birds. The increases in puffins, guillemots and razorbills is also very encouraging for the future of seabirds on Lundy and we are maintaining our vigilance to ensure rats cannot return to the island.”This initiative was part of the Biosecurity for LIFE project, which aims to raise awareness of the risk to seabirds such as puffins, Manx shearwater and European storm-petrel from predators such as rats, stoats and mink.Measures include encouraging boat owners to check their boats, cargo and baggage, and for day trippers to check their bags and keep any foodstuffs in animal proof containers. Guillemots on the water off Lundy island in the Bristol Channel Seabirds are thriving on an island in the Bristol Channel because of a 15-year project which eradicated rats from the island.Puffins, Manx shearwater and guillemots are all seeing their populations dramatically increase because of the project by the RSPB, Natural England and the National Trust.The RSPB said the population of seabirds on Lundy has tripled to 21,000 birds, with the Manx shearwater population growing from 297 pairs to 5,504 and puffins increasing from just 13 birds to 375.The project, which was launched in 2002 by Natural England, the Landmark Trust, the National Trust and RSPB, aimed to eradicate the rats because they posed the biggest threat to the survival of the birds.After four years, Lundy was declared rat free and the seabird populations have since been steadily rising.Rodents are not native to the island; they were accidentally brought over on boats. The RSPB has said this is a problem they have to tackle on many of the islands they oversee.Rats predate the eggs and young of seabirds, especially ground-nesting animals like puffins, as their nests are easy to plunder.Rosie Hails, director of science and nature at the National Trust, said: “We were really concerned as previous records showed that puffin numbers on Lundy had plummeted from over 3,500 pairs in 1939 to fewer than 10 pairs in 2000.
