Hypebeast PROCESS with Reigning Champ
Posted by Alex Bohea on August 30, 2013
Hypebeast have taken a trip to Vancouver to explore the behind-the-scenes work of Reigning Champ, a favourite here at The Great Divide. The PROCESS series aims to discover the steps behind the finished product, from the drawing board to the factory floor, and document the incredible amount of hard work and skill involved in these products. In the first part of their document, Hypebeast view the fabric selection and tech pack development of Reigning Champ’s premium fleece products before they are sent to the factory for production.
“It wasn’t long ago that the idea of wearing sweats was inconceivable to sartorially-minded guys, but with the rise of structured, tailored versions like those made by Reigning Champ, they’ve become an accepted — and even essential — part of our everyday wardrobes. For a closer look at the ins and outs of creating an impeccably-made and incredibly comfortable pair of sweats, we headed to Vancouver, British Columbia, touring Reigning Champ’s headquarters for the latest installment of our PROCESS series. The CYC-owned label emphasizes quality, design, fit and details in its garments, and is known — along with wings+horns — for some of the best fleece currently available on the market. Seen here is a glimpse of Reigning Champ’s latest and coziest designs as they make their way from the drawing board to the factory floor.”
