"Mixing its strong influences of history that have accented past collections with a variety of films and animated features, Triumvir has created a post-apocalyptic world where the old fuses with the new. Entitled, Blind Faith, the autumn collection references the Roman Civil Wars era of Constantine the Great, who adorned, for reasons disputed by scholars, symbols of Christ (Chi-Roh or Labarum) upon his warriors’ shields, standards, and later his own helmet. Fictional works referenced by Triumvir, including Fist of the North Star and Mad Max, are set during times of chaos and anarchy where law and order are subjective and the cruel reign over the weak. This sets ground for the winter collection, Hell is for Heroes, which also focuses on the Knights Hospitallers– a Christian military order during the time of the Crusades. Through clothes designed for the protagonist (Blind Faith) and the antagonist (Hell is For Heroes,) Triumvir tells an epic tale of two male characters, who live in an abstract world that is a blend of all these elements. With both of these new collections Triumvir moved its production of Cut & Sews back to the United States for better quality control. Triumvir T-shirts will also receive a minor adjustment, by switching over to a slimmer fitting blank."
