About Manhattan Knights
Sweats, tees, shorts, hats, beanies, hoodies, polo shirts and now masks, the Manhattan Knights ‘Cease and Desist’ Collection was launched in 2014 by designer Samuel MurkofskyMurkofsky. It is comfortably snarky with a pinch of anti-corporate dark humor and a wink to street wear. However, Murkovsky's inspiration for his designs are anything but tongue in cheek. A native New Yorker his company name was conceived in the days and weeks following 9/11, to express the love he has for his city and its ability to rise above tragedy and across divides of class, race, culture or gender. This is what he sees as the core of being a New Yorker and what he wanted his work to embody. The collections are ageless, unisex, fresh with each season, a sporty version of punk and perfect for the buy-now-wear-now marketplace.
