NEW YORK — On a cold Monday morning in Bushwick, Brooklyn, a handful of seamstresses bent over their machines in a small, tidy apparel factory sewing up a run of jeans. In an adjacent office, the facility’s owners, Raul Arevalo and Bradley Schmidt, ate pizza for lunch delivered from nearby Roberta’s, the local culinary gem in the fast-gentrifying neighborhood.
Arevalo and Schmidt design and operate a men’s wear label called Cadet, with three stores in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as well as in the East Village and Meatpacking District in Manhattan. Central to their business plan was opening this production facility in Brooklyn, which manufactures all of their garments while also producing for clients like Kenneth Cole, Nautica and a number of independent New York designers.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
