The journey to crafting a perfect award jacket started many years ago for our brand.  First we had to find the right manufacturer.  We wanted the best quality wool, the best quality leather, and the craftsmanship had to be second to none.  We also wanted to make sure that our first jacket was made right here in the USA, and not anywhere else. Once we found that right factory, we had to go to work to create a timeless piece that all of us would be proud to rock as we celebrate 5 years in business.  Through many changes, we were satisfied with the quality and style of the patches and embroidery that we will use for this jacket, much like the creative process we go through to design a fitted.  So after over a year of development, we are proud to present for the first time ever, MAJOR Victory Jacket by Dehen1920, and the lookbook, shot by the incomparable @George88

We started off with the top quality black 100% melton wool outer shell, sourced from Pendleton by Dehen.  We added 100% virgin wool trim, featuring white lines on the cuffs and waist, and true black on the neck collar for better wear.  The sleeves are made of 100% genuine cowhide, and the entire jacket is lined with satin for extra warmth, and ease of wear.  The end of left sleeve features the classic Bullets style MAJOR logo in white embroidery… Which you will start seeing more of.

Perhaps the most important detail on the Victory Jacket is the Trinity Chenille patch on the left chest.  Using the old school tackle twill method, this is a triple layer chain stitched chenille block letter.  You will not find quality like this in an imported item.

But wearing is believing, and on the right sleeve, we included the MAJOR Crest patch, inspired by George Washington’s family crest.  The detail on this patch is simply unbelievable, and the way it’s sewn onto the sleeve? You will think that it’s a part of the sleeve!

Due to our temporary closure of the showroom, the jacket will not be sold at the store.  We will announce the availability and release information via twitter.

Thanks for your support of the MAJOR brand, and the store!

 

Our latest project involves something that’s deeper than design, style,
art, or commerce.  When Jeff Staple from the Staple Design approached us
about Truth1585 campaign, we were excited to be involved in such an
educational project that can actually help people.


It’s been 20 days since the building collapse next door at 1424 Wisconsin Ave. NW, and we have not had much progress in getting our building safe enough to operate with customers and employees. We definitely appreciate all the encouraging and kind e-mails, tweets, and messages from all of our customers, and we are trying to rally up everyone from the city government to local politicians to help us get to the bottom of this matter. For those that have been wondering why we had to close, or have seen the front of the store, and wondered how bad the devastation was, we are able to show you for the first time the magnitude of the collapse.

Our showroom is on the left of the collapsed building, and our storage/office was on the right of the building. So when the collapse happened, it affected our entire operation, and shut us down for an extended period of time.

With no fire escape on the store building, and half of our inventory lost in the rubble on the right, it’s been very tough 20 days for us at MAJOR.
 
We didn’t want our customers to think that we are not trying our hardest to get re-open, so we wanted everyone to understand the magnitude of the loss, and how devastating it is to know that some of the lost items include items that everyone was waiting on for our Black Friday launch and beyond.

But please believe that The Only Store That Matters will come back as soon as we are able, and we will bring the best from all over the world, right here to our home in the Nation’s Capital!

Thanks for being a part of the MAJOR family!

On Thanksgiving Day afternoon, November 24th, an explosion and building collapse happened next door at 1424 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Fortunately, no one was hurt because everyone was off on holiday, but the damage, which cannot be seen from the Wisconsin Ave. NW facade, was so extensive that DC authorities have evacuated and banned people from entering 1422, 1424, and 1426 Wisconsin Ave. NW buildings.

Therefore, we were unable to open on Black Friday for our Midnight Madness, and we are still closed throughout the weekend, as investigators and authorities work through this matter.

As soon as we find out when we can re-open, we will let you know, and we will put on the Black Friday Sale that everyone missed out on. However, we are not certain how long it will take.

We would like to thank all of our customers and employees, who have shown patience through this ordeal, and we would especially like to thank the hardworking members of the DC Fire Department, and DC Police Department.

We will be back soon!

Umbro is the original Manchester based football (soccer) brand that invented sportswear and sports tailoring. Umbro’s first major football kit was made for Manchester City in 1934, a kit they won the FA Cup in. Today, the company combines its heritage in sports tailoring with modern football culture to create groundbreaking and iconic football apparel, footwear and equipment that blend performance and style.

Now, Umbro is relaunching the brand in the States after becoming a part of the Nike family, and to celebrate this occasion, the brand teamed up with us at MAJOR to produce a limited run of collab t-shirts, based on the styling of England football fan tees.

Available in sizes Small to Extra Large in limited quantities, these tees are made of 100% cotton featuring a MAJOR Trinity hit on the sleeve.  The tee’s fit is more European than American t-shirts.  This and other fine Umbro pieces, including New York Cosmos licensed products, are now available at MAJOR Showroom in DC.

Happy New Year Everyone! We hope that all of you had a safe and great holiday season w/ family & friends! As your pockets feel lighter after the holiday season, we are putting on a special sale event this week to help everyone out!

As always, we thank you for your support!  MAJOR boys are in the building tonight!

Thanks to the support of each and everyone of our MAJOR massive, our store & the brand is celebrating our 4th Anniversary on December 17th, 2010.

As we have done in each of our anniversary dates, we are releasing a combination of New Era offerings, as well as a brand partnership/collaboration effort.

Today, we preview the New Era offerings for the 4th Anniversary, Reign of The Tec Pack.  Reign of the Tec pack is inspired by the fact that we have always been street warriors.  As street warriors, camo has been one of the constant design elements that we have incorporated into various creations that MAJOR brand had offered.  Whether it was the original digi-camo Washington Nationals New Era that we opened with in 2006, or the adidas AZX 600 MAJOR that incorporated MAJOR-DigiCamo pattern on the heel counter, we have been fond of rocking the camo on everything, and this pack really does show off our love for the camouflage pattern.

First up, the Digi-Camo Trinity Rifle Green Fitted.

This fitted is constructed of Rifle Green wool blend, mimicking the army uniform.  The Trinity embroidery features the MAJOR DigiCamo pattern, with a solid black raised outline.  The rear embroidery features 3 Stars with the same MAJOR DigiCamo treatment.

Our second offering in this pack is the MAJOR NEVER MINOR DigiCamo Skullie.

MJRCAMO_4

We took the MAJOR DigiCamo pattern, and made it into a patterned knit fabric.  The cuff is solid black with a woven patch that reads “MAJOR NEVER MINOR.”  The cuff also features an army green New Era flag logo.

Stay tuned for the previews of our 4th Anniversary brand partnership/collab effort with our homies from Black Scale.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  We are thankful for our family & friends, and our ability to continue serving the freshest people in the world!

And as we started the tradition 4 years ago, we will not let you go to sleep, because we will have the best Black Friday sale in the world, starting first, at midnight after Thanksgiving!

Not only will we have the biggest savings of the year offered at MAJOR, but we will have the most limited and sought after Jordan Bin 23 Retro 7, the return of the Jordan Retro 13 in Flint Grey/French Blue (available in crib sizes to men’s sizes), AND Nike Foamposite Air Force 1  in all black (select sizes, as we have only received a partial shipment).  If that wasn’t enough, we are officially introducing Supra Brand at MAJOR with the Black Friday Red Carpet collection of Skytop & TK Society shoes.  And with any Supra purchase, you will receive a free Supra hoody.

We will see you at MAJOR at midnight!  BE THERE!!!
