A product I was interested in is sold out online, is there any chance you have it in stock in the vowels showroom and library? / When will a product be restocked?

Once an item, size, or colorway shows up as “sold out” on our webstore, that’s it, but inventories may be replenished from time to time. Our inventory system tracks all products both in the vowels showroom and research library as well as our distribution center. On the product page for any sold out item, you can register for email notifications to be the first to know when the item you’re looking for is available again.

Please note, due to the nature of processing and manufacturing to our level of standards, replenishments may not be placed back in stock quickly, or at all, for some products.

What is the Vowels Research Library and how do I book access to it?

The Vowels Research Library is a curated collection of rare and archival books, magazines, and other printed ephemera from the personal collection of vowels Creative Director Yuki Yagi. Each item in the Research Library is cataloged and organized by the vowels team of designers and researchers by letters A, E, I, O, and U. A curated selection of the Research Library items that directly inspired our debut capsule collection is currently available for public viewing at our 76 Bowery location.

To learn more, or to book a reservation for library access, please visit our 76 Bowery page.
