It’s Summer, and we’re celebrating by showcasing our premium Made-in-Canada men’s clothing brands. From Victoria’s Viberg handmade leather boots to Vancouver’s innovative Veilance, and Toronto’s Bather swimwear, we’ve got you covered from coast-to-coast.
What sets these guys’ clothing brands apart from the competition – outside the fact they’re made here? It’s quality. Their apparel is manufactured in Canada, giving them an edge on design and material production. They are also leagues ahead in aesthetic and refinement – let’s call them trendsetters.
Shorts, shirts, swim trunks, and fine denim – we’ve got the best in Canadian-made men’s clothing for summer 2019 and beyond.
Ready Yourself for Commutes with Veilance
Cevian Short Sleeve Shirt
The urban-focused extension of outdoor brand Arc’teryx, North Van’s Veilance is the preeminent designer of technical, high-performing men’s minimalist clothing. Through relentless attention to detail and design, Veilance utilizes innovative machinery in their Lower-Mainland home to create cutting-edge apparel and accessories for all-season use, with a focus on Vancouver’s Pacific climate.
Take the Blazer LT downtown board-meeting aesthetics but stitched for urban windy, wet commutes. A piece as seemingly simple as the Cevian T-shirt is an active merino-knit blend with articulated back and shoulder seams for maximum movement.
Toronto’s Beach-Ready Swim Trunks
Classic Swim Trunk Blue
Classic Swim Trunk Shibori Patter
Classic Swim Trunk Red
Bather has accomplished their launch mission – create a collection of fashionable, high-quality swimwear men can confidently wear to beaches, pools, and after-parties. They did this by shifting manufacturing to a Toronto neighborhood just minutes away from their downtown H.Q. The outcome – swim trunks that don’t chafe, dry fast, and looks that last for endless summers.
Summer swimsuits should start with Bather’s Classic Swim Trunk collection. The ultra-fine spandex-nylon mesh linings wear super-comfortably in the right places, and the outer shell dries in a flash. Hit the beach in shorts-like swimwear you can wear to the bar.
Step into Victoria’s Very Own Viberg Boots
Chromexcel Service Boots
Altitude Sports X Viberg Men’s Scout Boots
The boot makers of all boot makers – family-owned Viberg is the leading manufacturer of Canadian-made leather boots. The founder’s son still works their Victoria B.C.’s factory floor, with his team undertaking 200 production steps to create some of the world’s finest men’s footwear. Viberg truly sets the standards of quality, longevity, and style – these boots are worth the investment.
Items like the timeless Chromexcel Service Boots feature a 1931 design by Viberg’s founder – 2030 lasts, stitchdown construction, and immensely durable full-grain leather. Wear them with lightweight jeans and your favorite vintage tee, then hit the patio for beers and tapas. Summer – and more importantly Canada Day – never looked so good.
Reigning Champ’s of Vancouver Streetwear
Classic Crewneck – Mid Weight Terry
Raglan T-Shirt – Ringspun Jersey
New Era Cap
Another Vancouver brand we love, Reigning Champ sets a different mood with their premium men’s athletic wear. Detailed yet straightforward streetwear and everyday essentials are constructed with a line of signature fabrics built to last.
For Canada Day, grab the virgin-wool iconic New Era Cap 59FIFTY and go outdoors. The Raglan T-Shirt in ringspun jersey cotton is a wardrobe staple, helping you navigate a day of pick-up soccer in Stanley Park and a night out on Queen Street West in Toronto.
Denim Made with Love in Montreal
Weird Guy – Left Hand Twill Selvedge
Short Sleeve Easy Shirt – Double Weave Gauze
Super Guy – Kimono Print Selvedge
Naked & Famous are Montreal’s quintessential denim and the perfect ‘Jean and T-shirt’ guy’s look for Canada Day. This brand crafts some of the world’s finest men’s jeans from Japanese denim in no-nonsense style, without tacky washes or pre-distressing. The jeans are made in Canada and parody Hollywood’s celebrity-obsessed branding over quality.
With a tapered fit and substantial 13.75oz indigo rope dyed Japanese selvedge denim, the Naked & Famous Weird Guy Jeans breeze through cooler summer weather – especially with a classic white t-shirt. The left-hand twill construction provides a softer feel when worn. Over time, the denim fades vertically, giving a vintage aesthetic that looks great during mid-summer festivities.
Conclusion – Buy Canadian.
This summer, shop Made in Canada clothing on Altitude Sports and feel good about what you’re wearing. Built to last and understated styles, quiet, simple, and premium – a bit like our own country, eh?
