“I think once you learn how to run a straight stitch and fix your sewing machine whenever it breaks, you’re kind of in business to do whatever you want to do,” says Caesy Oney of Draught Dry Goods, who purchased his first vintage Singer at a thrift store while in art school in Oregon and got to work.

“I think once you learn how to run a straight stitch and fix your sewing machine whenever it breaks, you’re kind of in business to do whatever you want to do,” says Caesy Oney of Draught Dry Goods, who purchased his first vintage Singer at a thrift store while in art school in Oregon and got to work.
There was no aha moment. “When I was in college and learned to sew, I took off immediately and was like, ‘I want to form a company,’” he explains. “It was a one way street to Draught Dry Goods. I ran the project out of a studio in Montana for the first six months, and no one gave a shit what I was doing there. We had a local cobbler who was the one who gave me my first leather, ordered me some of my first tools.”
A few years later, Caesy settled back in Portland and launched a full line of buttery leather and waxed canvas bags, accessories, and (more recently) varsity-style jackets. The goal: to put out a collection with a simple, clean aesthetic, his mantras “permanent vacation” and “maximum pleasure” at the forefront. “I hate branding. I’m not interested in people shouting to the world that they have a Draught Dry Goods bag,” Caesy notes. “I just want it to be a beautiful bag.” —jackie varriano
