BLACKMERLE [blăk-mûrl] noun. – A black coated dog with irregular streaks and speckles of black.

BLACKMERLE is a young, tough, yet sophisticated brand that is centered on the core philosophy of “know thyself”. As conveyed in its logo, the symbolism of reflection carries the meaning of self-awareness and truly knowing one’s aspiration and vision. The brand draws its name from a black merle, a rebellious stray dog unsure of its place yet confident about its purpose. Like the merle, Terry Shin, the designer behind BLACKMERLE, has experienced life’s uncertainties and challenges to realize his true passion. The image of a black merle and the central meaning of the brand inspired him to create his debut collection. Looking forward, BLACKMERLE aims to continue innovating while reflecting its true vision of military grunge. BLACKMERLE offers contemporary handcrafted apparel with its signature grunge look. All garments are cut and sewn from scratch with the highest craftsmanship in limited quantities and are made with only the best fabric and thread. Each piece is sampled and altered multiple times to achieve the best fit and the perfect harmony with other pieces of the collection.
