Cursive Spotlight: Made In Canada – Redwood Classics Apparel. One thing Canadians are known for is being proud of, well, being Canadian. Redwood Classics Apparel prides itself on providing its customers with the highest level of quality available in the garment industry.  The success of Redwood Classics has garnered the attention of high-end retailers across Canada, and Redwood clothing is seen across North America in department stores, retail stores, universities, resorts, and corporate identity programs.

 

What is the key to this success? Redwood Classics Apparel is made in Canada. Toronto is where the magic happens, specifically at the WS & Company factory that holds three decades of experience, dedication, and perseverance within its walls. In addition to manufacturing Redwood Classics Apparel, WS & Co. has also manufactured products for high-profile brands, such as Roots Canada, Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay Company, Gilt Groupe, J. Crew, Polo Ralph Lauren, Gap, Todd Snyder New York, Scoop NYC, Ron Herman LA, Bonobos, Billy Reid, BEAMS, and Preloved. WS & Co. has also produced the Olympic apparel for Hudson’s Bay Company and Roots Canada.

 

The organization has grown over the past three decades and is now one of the most sought-after clothing manufacturers in the country. However, WS & Co. provides tailor-made services to clothiers around the world. WS & Co. is 100 per cent Canadian owned and operated, offering everything from sewing, cutting, embroidering, and labeling to screen-printing, washing, dying, packaging, and distributing.  Because all of these services are done right here in Toronto, WS & Co. is a true rarity, as few companies in the West claim a dominion over an integrated manufacturing process like this one. After all, it always feels better to buy and wear something that comes from home.

August 12 marked the start of the first Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM*FW) at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. Following in the footsteps of fashion capitals across the globe, TOM*FW is the eighth men’s fashion week in the world after London, Paris, Florence, Milan, Singapore, Vancouver, and Los Angeles. TOM*FW is collaborating with Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) to present the Emerging Menswear Designer Award. The winning designer will receive $10,000 as well as a membership and mentorship from TFI. Among the judges this year are Susan Langdon, TFI’s Executive Director, and David Dixon, TFI’s President and Designer.

 

 

Want to grab some swag at TOM*FW? The Hector Cardigan by Redwood Classics Apparel, Canada’s leading boutique apparel manufacturing house, will be available for purchase at the Fairmont Royal York. Handmade in Toronto, the Hector Cardigan costs $75 and all proceeds go to Men’s Fashion 4 Hope in support of the Kol Hope Foundation at SickKids Hospital.

 

Redwood Classics Apparel embodies Toronto. Each and every article of clothing is handmade and crafted in the city by highly skilled textile professionals. Like TOM*FW, Redwood Classics Apparel is keeping Canada on the global fashion stage and shipping orders to the United States, Europe, and Japan. Additionally, President Kathy Cheng made WXN’s list of the Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada in 2013. This year, Apparel Magazine named Redwood’s factory Top Innovator, alongside Adidas, JCPenney, and Halston.

 

TOM*FW is making an entrance at a thriving time for the men’s fashion industry. Aside from increasing global interest, the city of Toronto is experiencing a boom in men’s fashion as well. Canadian luxury men’s retailer Harry Rosen is expanding across the country and Holt Renfrew is opening a three-floor men’s store on Bloor Street. From local boutiques like Nomad to the long-awaited arrival of luxury empires Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, men’s fashion is taking Toronto by storm for men and women alike.
