One day, designer Mark Lane got jealous.

There seemed to be so many different types of patterns that appear to be feminine, but Mark had a difficult time finding patterns that appealed directly to men.

So Mark got to work.

The result was MANpatterns.

As Mark began to develop more patterns, he brought in some designer friends (and one marketing friend). This website — and the forthcoming MANpatterns products — are a collaboration from that group.
