—01. Colour blocking.
—02. Red and beige microstripe.

Words

While summer may be waning, the short sleeves on our latest Barbarian make-ups are still a welcome addition considering the sweltering temperatures outside. The simple colour blocks and lighter colours give a staple item a bit more of a whimsical feel. The short sleeved versions, in two light and unique micro-striped colourways, are ideal for the warm weather and the thick cotton jersey fabric will carry over well into fall.

Inventory Item 013: Barbarian Rugby Shirts

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

It's not too often that we are able to make products in Canada, but working with Barbarian is something we've been planning for awhile. The 100% heavyweight cotton shirts feature a white collar, a slimmed down fit and come in two colour options. The grey/ivory combination and the heather/navy both look great and the natural colors are perfect compliments for blues, reds and chambrays. Rugby shirts are often overdone, but we feel our version offers the authenticity and toughness of the traditional shirt while using soft tones, great fabric and a much nicer fit.

The Hideout + Norse Projects + Barbarian

—01. Red short sleeve.
—02. Navy long sleeve.

Words

Barbarian is another company that has its roots in North American history, specifically Canadian history, yet has thrived in Japan in recent years. As a tougher alternative to a Breton top, the rugby shirts offer a shirt/jacket/sweater option that can be quite diverse and look great. We haven't seen the brand reach out beyond the East, except for on rugby pitches, but Norse Projects and The Hideout have done a great job putting together a couple of spring shirts. The colours, white collars and long and short sleeve options are nicely done.
