7 Mesh’s New Women’s Line

Canadian apparel company 7 Mesh has slowly been expanding their lineup since launching with their jackets a year ago. While the men’s line has a solid foundation, female customers will be interested in their women’s line. This includes the WK1 short and Britannia jerseys, two items I can see doing quite well for the brand. The women’s line also includes multiple jackets and longsleeve jerseys.

All of which are in stock now at 7 Mesh.

Mission Workshop’s New and Improved Bosun Merino Jacket

The Bosun was one of Mission’s favorite jackets and so when a relaunch was in order, they took the time for a little fine-tuning the tailoring. They updated the jacket to include a removable hood with zippered front hand warmer pockets, as well as cleaning up the fit. The new and improved Bosun Merino Jacket is constructed using 380 GSM Australian Merino wool that is spun with 2% lycra to increase stretch and durability. Wear it alone or layered with a rain jacket. Made in the USA, in limited quantities and shipping mid-February. See more at Mission Workshop.

Chris King Precision Components wanted to make sweatshirts for the winter season but they didn’t just want to outsource them. So what did they do? They cut their own patches, in house and then bought machines and hired people to sew them. Pretty cool, huh?
