Hoodie season has arrived. Proper Fall gear is a must to keep you warm (even if you’ve already gotten started on cuffing season, lucky you). With that being said, repping this city was never a difficult job with all the creatives in Toronto: we carry the city on our shoulders, and dope styles on our back. Check out the brands you’ve been sleeping on this season:
Forever Umbrella (Brampton)
Brampton’s very own SwaveNation, Tory Lanez released his brand Forever Umbrella January 1st of this year. With sweats and hoodies proclaiming “The New Toronto” regime on the front of them and of course the Toronto native never fails to impress.
Started in the heart of Mississauga, 5&10 also known as Hurontario and Dundas keeps the city streets woke with their brand. Through each piece sold proceeds are given back to the city. A big focus over the years has been their dedication to the Mississauga Food bank. Also sponsoring a young athlete this past summer to attend Sauga Native Andrew Nicholson’s basketball camp 44 Hoops Camp. It’s on them to stay consistent and stay true to who they are. “As long as the city still wants us, we’ll be here helping to grow it”. -5&10Movement
Dwayne Connell Clothing (Toronto)
A Toronto hustler from Scarborough that has impacted the West Indian community in many ways with being a supporter and getting his brand out by self-promoting and of course word of mouth. With major artist like Alkaline from Jamaica and our cities own DJ Dr. Jay, showing off the self-made sweater that come in many different colours and varieties to match whatever colour scheme you chose to wear this fall.
FBD Clothing (Mississauga)
Fly By Design, a Mississauga street brand that originally started off in a Malton basement earlier this year. Known for their “Legends Never Die” & “Legend in The Making” tee’s as well as their “Ahlie Fam” dad hats, embracing themselves in a different way. They honor themselves with small pieces and digital art work designs. “”IT TOOK LONG TO GET HERE AND I’M NOT EVEN HERE YET.” –FBD.
