Our Philosophy

Real women, just like you, are our inspiration. Since 1985, we’ve crafted easy-care knits and signature wovens of exceptional quality — with an eye on comfort, versatility, and impeccable style.

Our founder, Misook Doolittle, began designing clothing with a penchant for timeless silhouettes, sophisticated color palettes, and elegant details — a concept that rapidly garnered a following from women worldwide. Today, these fashion principles continue to define our brand, with knitwear and coordinating separates that fit your lifestyle and flatter your figure.

The Misook Difference

All Misook knit garments are machine washable, fade resistant, and wrinkle-free.
Our breathable no-cling knits are figure flattering on all body types, and are available in sizes XS-3X.
All pieces are designed to be mixed, matched, and layered season after season.
Misook’s classic pieces won’t stretch or fade over time and machine washing reduces dry cleaning bills.
Misook clothing is comfortable, easy to pack, and won’t wrinkle.
Thoughtful Craftsmanship

From start to finish, the making of a MISOOK garment is simply superior — resulting in beautiful investment pieces that stand the test of time in your wardrobe.

Design. It begins with our designers, who envision styles that will look as good on you as they do in the sketchbook. Our clothing is carefully engineered to flatter the figures of real women, gracing your body in the all the right places.

Materials. The secret behind our beloved knits? MISOOK proprietary yarns lend unmatched silkiness, machine washability, and fade and wrinkle resistance. This attention to outstanding components extends to MISOOK Collection, with its fine woven fabrics and luxurious materials — and all MISOOK garments incorporate only the highest caliber zippers, buttons, and trims.

Production. When it comes to manufacturing, our factories serve MISOOK exclusively, using the finest equipment available. Each knitwear piece is crafted individually using the full fashion technique, a top-tier production method generally reserved for couture lines. This eliminates stretching and warping over time, and also allows for precise pattern placement on every garment. Our woven styles are similarly produced using only best practices — a hallmark that distinguishes our quality.

Delivery. Our quality control process is unsurpassed in the industry. Every finished garment is carefully hand inspected, pressed, and hung before it makes its way to our loyal customers. We firmly believe that the benefits of our meticulous methods outweigh the costs, resulting in premium clothing that’s perfectly suited to the way you live
