Elvstrøm SailWear is inspired by the sailors who wear it. SailWear is for everyone - from the cruising sailor, dreaming of sailing the oceans - to the local club racer who believes every race is a Championship.
The Elvstrøm Crown is dedicated to sailors who share a passion for boats and sailing pleasure - those who know how every moment counts.
The Crew Collection is inspired by the life onboard, with a twist of the Paul Elvstrøm legacy integrated in every style.
When you are wearing a style by Elvstrøm SailWear, you are also wearing a piece of history and the winning spirit that founded the world of Elvstrøm.
From one sewing machine to a global sailmaker
In 1954 Paul Elvstrøm started his own sail loft, Elvström Dinghy Sails with only one sewing machine in the basement of his childhood home in Northern Copenhagen.
Today Elvstrøm Sails is a global sailmaker producing more than 400.000 square metres of sail every year.
With the launch of SailWear, each clothing style in our collection is a tribute to the history of Paul Elvstrøm and his legacy as a sporting legend - and to the evolution of sailing, which Paul Elvstrøm contributed to under his Elvstrøm Sails name.
Every style in the SailWear Collection is named to commemorate one of Paul Elvstrøm's great results.
For almost three quarters of a century, Elvstrøm Sails has specialized in designing and manufacturing sails for a diverse range of sailboats. Sails tailored for individuals who all embrace sailing with passion. With the introduction of Elvstrøm SailWear it is now possible to share this passion and spirit even further.
