New in Stock: Reigning Champ
- October 12, 2012 |
The folks at Reigning Champ, the latest brand to arrive at EDC, have perfected the art of tried-and-true fleece. Their collection of twill terry hoodies, super-soft crewnecks, sweatpants, and alpine heather knits are pretty hard to resist, and just as at home in their hometown of Vancouver as they are here in Chicago. The secret weapon behind the brand is their collection of original fabrics, all designed for the utmost quality, strength, and the lived-in, comfortable nonchalance of your favorite sweatshirt (but twice as nice).
At first glance, a jersey parka might not seem like the most weather-resistant choice of outerwear. In fact, Reigning Champ reveals their technical chops with this garment, made from a water resistant-yet-breathable jersey. The cotton blend jersey is coated, with the added bonus of Dintex and Tricot for extra protection. Two chest pockets give you plenty of storage space, while the zipper pocket on the left sleeve gives you easy access to keys or other necessities.
One of the defining characteristics of Reigning Champ’s collection is their ability to perfect a few core pieces: their Full Zip Hoodie is one of them. Sharp details include textured ribbing along the hood and pocket entry, double layer ribbed side gussets, and contrast natural taping.
This classic, crew neck sweater by Reigning Champ is perfect evidence of what the brand does best, from their signature, mid-weight terry to the simple, well-hewn design.
The varsity jacket gets a contemporary, cold-weather revamp in this seasonal favorite from Reigning Champ. Sharp details include the baseball-style collar, contrast shoulder inserts, and two-way compartmented patch pockets.
Raglan sleeves and a crew neck make this 100% cotton shirt the epitome of classic, casual styling. Details include scalloped bottom hem with serged edge and self fabric cuffs.
Lounging has never looked (or felt) so good. The mid-weight twill terry is super-comfortable, and the shorts are styled to look sharp, even while you’re relaxing. Back left patch pocket, front pockets at side seams, contrast natural drawcord at waist and bottom hem.
