Many people confuse apes with monkeys. Though ape and monkey are often used interchangeably, they are not the same from a scientific point of view.

Apes and monkeys are primates that have evolved different physical and mental characteristics throughout time to respond to different needs and environments. For example, most monkeys have an easily visible tail, but no apes do, and while monkeys are physically built for a life in the trees, apes tend to be built for a life lived in the trees and on the ground.


Made for people with a modernist sensibility, ST. APE presents the ultimate standard in contemporary ready-to-wear. What makes us different from the rest is our belief that the process of achieving that ultimate garment is just as important as the end result. Through perseverance and commitment to this core belief, we have been able to find excellent artisan business to be our partners for manufacturing. We only select the best fabrics available and collaborate closely with all of our suppliers. The result is that only very limited runs of each collection are created, ensuring that quality standards remain high across each garment.

This mindset extends to the obsessive attention we have given to all our parts & trimmings. Every zip and button is custom made and handcrafted with ST. APE’s logo with the finest suppliers.

Apes are generally considered to be intelligent

but only a few are genius
