The Watch List - Outclass

Have you heard of Outclass? No? Well, really you should have. The brand was bought to our attention when they followed us on Tumblr. As always my natural inquisitiveness drew me to check out my latest follower. To my surprise it was Canadian menswear label, Outclass. 

Founded in 2009, they take cues from the past as a means of building their vision for what men should dress like. Their roots are firmly in sophisticated execution using the best fabrics and details to ensure that their fits are contemporary and timeless. At the moment Outclass are looking to keep their quantities limited in order to maintain the high level of quality the brand wishes to maintain. 

If you were to visit their website now you'd find a small yet well rounded collection of items ranging from shirting to leather goods. One of my personal favourites from the label's SS12 collection is the Wax Cotton/Leather Carryall. Made using a wax cotton outer and leather base it boasts a high quality look and feel, to add to this it is limited in numbers and made-to-order.

100% wool exterior and Italian wool houndstooth lining

An example of the thoughtful detailing Outclass employs to set their products apart, here they've lined their raw grey  denim with a 100% striped oxford cotton

I hope this year sees the brand grow and go from strength to strength because I think they're onto something great.
