Our new logo?

We are planning to change our original logo.

Cutting edge, sleek, bold, futuristic, hover board... these are just some things that came to mind when we designed the new logo below.

Please let us know your thoughts.


Open for Business!

We decided to open the store a few weeks early so people can order before the fall rush. Look around to see our new designs and collaborations.

Granted designs Don Cherry sweater for WORN Fashion journal

Granted was requested by WORN Fashion Journal to contribute to their Don Cherry fashion article "Cherry picking". Don Cherry is an opinionated, controversial, and best of all, sartorially splendid Canadian icon. WORN Fashion Journal invited six artists and designers from across the country to reinterpret his image, garnering results that may rival Don's wardrobe in their diversity.

Inspiration behind this sweater was the iconic chunky knit sweater of the Canadian West Coast. The dog pattern was modeled after Mr.Cherry's late dog Blue that was featured in many early "Rock em' sock em" videos. The overall colourway was taken from the days of his coaching years with the Boston Bruins. His nickname "Grapes" is placed on the back like a hockey jersey.

WORN Fashion journal discusses the cultures, subcultures, histories, and personal stories of fashion. We strive to embody a place between pop culture magazine and academic journal that opens new avenues in art and fashion theory by hovering where these two ideas intersect, connecting with fashion scholars and artists.

You can find an issue of WORN Fashion journal here or take a look at their blog .

Winner of the CBC Sweater goes to...

...DEVIN MORROW of Winnipeg! Congratulations!

Everywhere Grant Lawrence of the CBC Radio 3 went with his CBC sweater, people wanted to know where they could get one. We don't have the rights to sell one, so we decided to have a sweater contest give-away. Every week for the last seven months, people had the chance to submit their names into Grant's radio show and just last week it was announced!



Our pixelated world.....

This video really struck a cord with me.
As I watched the video it brought back memories of my child hood, playing video games like most kids do. The pixelated world depicted in this video really shows how I see the world when thinking and designing our sweaters.

I hope you enjoy this amazing video by One More Productions and Patrick Jean.

Tegan or Sara?

A friend of ours recently sent us a photo of Tegan or Sara wearing our deer love toque!

We can't see the tattoos or hairstyle in the picture so we have yet to confirm which sister it is.

For those who don't know them, Tegan and Sara are a Canadian indie band led by identical twins Tegan Rain Quin and Sara Kiersten Quin (born in Calgary, Alberta). The band has released six studio albums since 1999, most recently Sainthood in 2009. They have toured with bands such as Neil Young and the Pretenders.

We're huge fans of Tegan and Sara and often "rock out" to their songs in our office.
This is our current favorite song from Tegan and Sara.

Thank you very much Tegan or Sara!!!
