The North Face

Shop The North Face by Department

Rock climbers, backpackers, hikers and trail runners are all deeply familiar with the ultimate fit and function of The North Face clothing. The North Face began in 1966 as a humble little retail store in San Francisco, created by two passionate hikers who named the business after the coldest, most unforgiving side of a mountain. Soon after they opened, production began on the first line of The North Face clothing, mainly technical mountaineering apparel and equipment. While the brand continued to flourish over the years, a different kind of outdoor enthusiast took notice.

You need only head down the streets of any major city to see The North Face is the brand worn for serious “urban orienteering.” The North Face men’s jacket is a long-standing streetwear staple. A fashion editor’s winter wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without The North Face jacket for women. The North Face’s street legitimacy has helped it transcend its nature roots. Today, The North Face men’s hoodie is just as common as The North Face men’s jacket. Rappers like 50 Cent, Fabolous and Wu-Tang Clan regularly rep North Face men’s jackets. So whether you’re rock climbing or rocking out, The North Face makes gear for the adventurer in all of us.

Never stop exploring.
