Machine, a unique New York brand of men’s lifestyle apparel, has attracted a loyal group of supporters since its launch in 1999. Committed to quality clothing and apparel that pushes the limits, Machine hopes to represent the confident, passionate individual.
Machine’s designs are inspired by thrill-seekers, as Joeson displays a passion for racing and extreme sports. Thunderous exhausts, powerful speakers, and big spoilers are forms of expression for cars; Machine is an original form of expression for men.
Machine’s advertising strategies helped to put the brand on the map: a promotional campaign in 2004 attracted and held New Yorkers’ attention. The campaign, a series of eye-catching posters and billboards, was featured throughout the major fashion districts in New York City.
Machine’s popularity grew following these advertisements. Within their first year of business, Machine entered every major department store in the USA. Their line includes: denim jean, woven shirts, polos, graphic tees, sweatshirts, hoodies, shorts, blazers, and jackets. Style changed from street racing to club wear, engaging more graphic and texture.

Shopko, Belk, Buckle, Stage, Kmart, and T.J.Maxx also sell Machine clothing.
