Being based out of Montreal, we at Crew and Unsplash know a thing or two about how to handle the colder months.
So when it came time to add a new item to the Crew Store, we unanimously decided on something that would keep us cozy throughout the seasons.
Today we’re excited to announce the latest limited piece in our collection: The Unsplash Sweatshirt.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. But this isn’t your dad’s old college sweatshirt.
We’re talking a 100% all-Canadian designed and made product. We worked from the ground up creating the best-fitting, softest, most comfortable crew neck sweatshirt possible.
Every single detail from the stitching to the sizing to the subtle Unsplash logo was agonized over. We wanted to make something that would stand the test of time in our wardrobes—and (without bragging too much) we’re happy to say that this labor of love has paid off.
This sweatshirt isn’t fast-fashion. It’s no slap-our-logo-on-a-stock-sweater. This is something you’ll cherish and own for a lifetime.
Think we’re exaggerating? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at what went into making this piece and why we think you’ll love it.
When it comes to something like a sweatshirt, the garment lives and dies by its fit.
Too tight and you can’t layer up underneath. Too loose and you’re getting into marshmallow man/woman territory.
We went straight to the source and tried on some of the best crewnecks on the market—marking down what we liked and didn’t like about each one. In the end, we always found something that wasn’t quite right with each, and so the only option was to make our own size and fit.
Everything we do at Crew is built to last, and our clothing is no different.
We worked with a local manufacturer to get the highest quality fabrics and we’re proud to say that the Unsplash Sweatshirt is made of 100% French terry cotton at 400gsm. In other words, our sweatshirt will keep it’s structure and softness wash after wash.
Once we were happy with the fit, materials, and stitching, we moved on to the fine details like the embroidered and hand-pressed custom Unsplash patches, hem and neck labels, and our signature numbered letterpress tags.
We can’t wait for you to try these on and see how brilliant they make you look and feel.
Currently, the Unsplash sweatshirt is a limited offering, and is available exclusively through our Unsplash Book Kickstarter campaign.
