About Sea Culture Brand Clothing Store Skaneateles

Welcome to the world of 



We are a lifestyle fashion brand based out of Upstate New York with an attention to detail and craftsmanship. We think about every button, stitch, and style we design because, at the end of the day, we are making clothes that are for us. When it comes to the production of our garments, we source from all over the world to find the most responsible and ethically made fabrics.

"My deep appreciation for craftsmanship and attention to detail stems from my obsession with quality. When I set out to start this company, I wanted to do things the right way.  I care deeply about the impact we have on the environment so we try to source the most sustainable fabrics we can find and work with organizations to fulfill their goals for a greener earth."


"I am so grateful that you allow me to live my dream every day. Thank you for coming along for the ride. "

Dan Tagliamonte Founder | Designer

"I started working retail jobs at the age of 18 and fell in love with the clothing industry. For me, making connections with people was the driving force to start my own thing. Working for those bigger retail companies had killed my creativity and I was searching for something more. The things that we are doing, and the environment we've created has brought purpose and inspiration back into my life.

"We aren't just your average clothing retailer. We are a brand dedicated to the detail and craft."

Maria Sakran Co-Owner | Partner in Crime



With quality comes craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on working with factories that hold themselves accountable for the way they do business. Craftsmanship, to us, means things are made the right way. That means our products are not made in sweatshops. We know our factories, most of them are family-run facilities.
