20oz - Elephant 11 Grandrelle - Weird Guy
Naked & Famous - 20oz Elephant 11 Grandrelle - Weird Guy
It's that time of year again! Can you believe it? The Elephant is back. If we had to pick just one thing to carry from the seasonal made-in-Canada line, it would be the Elephant. This series truly stands alone in terms of sheer weight-to-price ratio. But leaving it at that is selling it short. Each year, we're guaranteed a new creative, innovative heavyweight denim. The development alone is noteworthy. To get to the nitty-gritty, we're looking at a gorgeous new 20oz denim that has plenty of texture in the warp alone, but the weft is where the real character lies. The Grandrelle part of the denim in the warp is created by twisting white and black yarns together to create this marble-like texture. We've been trying to wrap our heads around just how this texture will look at the denim fades. We can only imagine some parts of the denim will be super shadowy and others with look more like regular fades. That "staticky TV" look will most likely transfer to the top as it fades. We simply cannot wait to see how they turn out. These crunchy boys are limited, seasonal production. The Elephant is always the quickest run to go, so grab them now or forever hold your denim peace.

Fit Notes: Andy is wearing a size 30 in the Weird Guy Fit. That is his classic size. These have plenty or room in the waist and rise to accommodate the heavier weight. He had no trouble slipping them on even though they were heavier. The buttons take a while to work in, but you can loosen them with a wooden dowel. Shop Owner Tommy would also wear a size 30 in these. He is our standard fit reference and is 5'10", 165lbs with a 32-33" waist.
*The Weird Guy is a standard tapered fit with a medium rise, a comfortable top block, and a taper from knee to hem.*
This Crosscut has all that heavy texture goodness for which the shirt is known. It's a chunky twill with the enamel-coated buttons you all know and love. And, it's a gorgeous Rust color that shoots a bit of saturation into an otherwise desaturated lineup for FW23. Still though, this shirt has a softness from the brushing process that we've come to appreciate. The day of the stiff, crunchy flannel has come to an end, at least for now. Cozy is in, but without losing the hardiness this thing cut its teeth on.
The Easy Pant is a roomy, comfy fitting pant with a cut nice enough to make you want to wear it out and about, but just as easily to lounge on the couch. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, these pants will pair perfectly with them. We really appreciate that they used their newly acquired fabric wizardry to do the talking. Since pairing with their factory in India, the level of textile uniqueness is through the roof. This Jacquard has a topographical hand feel that you can see in the pictures but only truly experience in person. It's very, very hard to shock us after 10 years of seeing and touching fabrics on a daily basis - but this Dry Garden Jacquard has opened our eyes to what technical weaving can be.
The Shop Jacket is a new silhouette for FW23 that is designed with a nod toward classic European chore coats. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, this jacket will layer over the top of them so nicely.

We figured it was due time to bring in some tees from our fan-favorite brand. Our thinking was that if they make pants and shirts and sweats so well, the tee shirts must be impeccable. Well, they are. We love the loose, boxy fit of this tee more than we expected. And the little embroidery of the islands of Japan at the yoke is fantastic. The jersey fabric is heavy without being a "heavyweight" tee. It's a jersey with just enough weight that you can feel it but not so much that it feels like a task to put it on. This and the roomier cut give it nice breathability. If you're an orSlow stan like we are at the shop, you're gonna need one of these puppies.
If you asked the question "What would it be like if you put pockets on the Fatigue Pants?" - this might just be your answer. Of course, it has different pockets and a slightly different cut, but a similar look overall. We've received more questions about this pant over the past 6 months than we know what to do. Sometimes, we like to snag something, if we can, to test fit and glean public opinion. This one was a "yes" from the general pop, and from us at the shop, so it had to be brought in. The major difference between this and most fatigues is that ripstop fabric. It's the grid pattern you see on a macro level in the pants that is built to be more resistant to ripping and tearing. It was one of the military's first tech fabrics, without using any actual synthetic tech. Where they lack the texture of the reverse sateen, they gain a ton with the ripstop. These are a little smoother overall and we're over the moon for this roomier fit. They take on a whole new wardrobe inspiration with this loose, comfy feel. The side tab adjusters make it quite utilitarian as the piece is as a whole in general. These babies have everyone swooning.
