Portuguese Flannel "Wooden Journey" FW16 Collection

Shop favourite Portuguese Flannel is back for FW16 with seven different varities of the softest flannel shirts around. If you're unfamiliar, Portuguese Flannel uses high quality fabrics and traditional processing techniques to bring about a unique and comfortable touch. Their expertly woven flannel is crafted in the northern tip of Portugal, a region renowned for its textile heritage, where softness and warmth are achieved by zealous craftsmen and first class manufacturers focused on supreme product quality. We shot a little editorial with the guys from Hollow Ground Barber Shop, located a couple blocks from the store. Like most barbershops, it's full of jokes so make sure to pay the guys a visit the next time you need a cut (but go early!).

SS16 Looks - April Showers

There's a reason they say "April showers bring May flowers" (originally "Sweet April showers/Do spring May flowers"). April is a chaotic month in terms of weather. As we've witnessed here in Toronto this month, one day the weather can change from springtime sunshine to winter sleet and snow. In our first LOOKS of the Spring/Summer season, we take a look at your options to combat the rain.

Woolrich John Rich & Bros. - Teton Rudder Jacket - This technical, short hooded jacket features Woolrich's Teton technical fabric. Waterproof, breathable and durable, this outerwear piece is the perfect companion to keep you dry in and out of the city. Other details include hand-warmer welt pockets, a drawstring hood and adjustable cuffs.

Muttonhead - Waterproof 5-Panel Cap - Made from a dual layered soft-shell fleece, it's 100% waterproof and features an adjustable back leather strap that makes it easy to tighten or loosen to your desired fit. Whether it’s worn to shelter your eyes from the sun or to cover up a bad hair day on a rainy day, the Muttonhead 5-panel hat is sure to do the trick.

Outclass - Twill Pant - Olive Slevedge - These made in Toronto pants are constructed using a soft, selvedge cotton twill fabric and herringbone pocketing. They feature selvedge detailing on the double coin pockets, tonal stitching and an embossed leather patch. 

18 Waits - Neuwirth Shirt - Natural/Blue Stripe The Neuwirth shirt is a style often used as a blank canvas to craft more creative pieces such as this beauty. Everything else that we love about the Neuwirth remains such as the slim fit & hidden button down collar. However, this particular shirt features 45% Linen, providing a lighter-weight fabric for the warmer temperatures. 

FW15 Looks - Outerwear

There may not be a more timeless yet statement piece in a man's wardrobe than the camel overcoat. It can be worn in formal situations over a suit yet it looks equally as good dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt. In our latest LOOKS, we've showcased it somewhere in between formal and casual, pairing it with navy as well as some accessories.

Outclass - Camel Overcoat - This Overcoat is made with a thick melton wool body and lined with a soft, flannel fabric that features a distinctive multicolour, herringbone check pattern. Canadian-made kasha fabric lines the sleeves and allows for ease of movement of the arms, while the soft flannel underside provides added warmth. Other subtle design details include brown herringbone wool under the collar and side pocket flaps, single welt breast pocket and brown corozo nut buttons.

18 Waits - The Slims Casual Trousers - These pants, also available in Forest Green and Camel, are perfect for dressing up or dressing down. If you're feeling a littler adventurous, you can roll them up to reveal the taped seams. Other clean design details include double welt back pockets, angled front pockets and a front welt coin pocket.

18 Waits - Neuwirth Shirt - The devil is in the details with this shirt. The fit is slim and expertly tailored and the styling is clean. With hidden collar & cuff buttons this shirt always looks put together…even when you aren’t.

Anderson's Light Brown Calf's Leather BeltThis vegetable tanned light brown leather belt from Anderson's is made in Parma, Italy from premium quality calf's leather. The solid brass buckle is in a English silver finish. Each individual belt is hand finished and polished by expert craftsmen.

Woolfell - Olive Barrel Bag - This handmade in Montreal bag features 10 oz. waterproof canvas with antique brass and brown leather detailing, including the straps. It's also fully padded with foam so your belongings will be safe and sound.

Anonymous Ism Indigo Beacon Crew Socks - These cotton blend socks feature an all over woven design and are finished off with a ribbed cuff.

Liel and Lentz - Tiger's Eye x2 - This double bracelet features 6mm Tiger's Eye stone and 6mm Ebony wood, with a .925 silver accent.

FW15 Looks - Heavy-Weight Layers

It's cold. Not freezing cold, but cold enough to start thinking about thicker layers. When the temps hit the low teens, we layer up with a warm flannel shirt and flannel-lined wool-blend shirt jacket.

18 Waits - Rivington Weekender - Grey/Cream Wool Herringbone - This particular shirt-jacket from 18 Waits features side seam pockets to keep your hands warm. Shirt-jackets like this one (also available in black) can be worn as outerwear or as a layering piece that your parka goes over. It's super versatile and is wearable for Fall, Winter and Spring.

Portuguese Flannel - Vitoria - Fine metal brushes are run over the fabric to create a 'nap', which gives the material its softness. Beyond texture, the lifted material traps air and heat, making it the ideal counter to plunging temps.

Edwin - Skinny Stretch - Raw State - These jeans are made from Rainbow x Red/White Selvage Denim exclusively produced by the famous Japanese denim mill, Nihon Mempu. Selvedge denim is woven or knot so that they will not fray, ravel or curl...ie. better quality!

DW Leatherworks - Belt Loop Key Hook - Brown - The Belt Loop Key Hook is made of heavyweight bridle leather from Wickett & Craig that and can be fit onto 2" duty belts. Features a brass clip that will take any type of keys you have and a snap button for easy closure.

Anderson's - Calf Leather Belt - Brown - This vegetable tanned brown leather belt from Anderson's is made in Parma, Italy from premium quality calfs leather. Each individual belt is hand finished and polished by expert craftsmen.
