About us

WEST 56 is a "clothing for the future" company and is setting new standards for athletic and leisure apparel. Chief Designer Alston Yang, a Parsons The New School for Design graduate, intends to galvanize a new movement amongst altheisure consumers where he is set to deliver modern design and function, infused with high quality, technology and performance fabrics for the future of clothing.

Here at WEST 56, we have exclusively developed our very own fabric, combining years of sourcing the highest quality fibers with Japanese technology. We are now proud to introduce you to HEATIMAPCT™ fabric. This type of fabric is soft to the touch, retains body heat as much as a wool sweater, and it wears like it was made for you. It also offers anti-bacterial, anti-odor, stretch comfort, and non-deforming fabric features.

We are pleased to debut our THERMAL collection. This collection is the signature for WEST 56's exclusive HEATIMPACT™ fabric and the jumping off point for all collections to come. The THERMAL collection from WEST 56 is designed in NYC and is a natural extension of Alston’s high standards for quality, comfort and a sport-centric lifestyle with a chic attitude.
