outclass x gerhard : 5 YEARS AND COUNTING
On June 23 2018 we celebrated the 5th anniversary of our shop and our longest standing designer partnership : Outclass Attire.
To acknowledge the milestone, we prepared a retrospective exhibition featuring our favourite Outclass pieces from the last 5 years.
We also designed and produced a collaborative capsule collection with Outclass. The capsule collection is a nod to our first season with the brand, Spring / Summer 2013, which featured a 3-pack of chambray shirts in blue, black and red.
Outclass is a Toronto-based lifestyle brand committed to producing carefully crafted menswear essentials in Canada. Founder and creative director, Matteo Sgaramella, set out to design his first capsule collection while attending university. While researching factories, he uncovered a small network of talented manufacturers in Toronto. His passion for quality and attention to detail inspired the factory owners, many of whom had become used to producing utilitarian garments and uniforms. The majority of these initial relationships are still in place and those connections, have grown beyond simple business relationships.
Thank you to all of our friends, customers, and passers by for making the event such a pleasure to host.
