Klaxon Howl has been a staple of the Toronto clothing scene since 2005, and now we are looking to expand into New York with either a permanent brick and mortar store, or at least a 2-3 month pop-up shop.
Designer Matt Robinson's inspirations come from the spirit and icons of the past. Men who toiled and the clothes that protected them. Frontiersmen and Prospectors, Soldiers and Sailors, Aviators and Highwaymen, American Indians and Cattlemen and the film idols that portrayed them. He studies and references his ever growing archive of vintage garments, books and films for details, fit, fabrics and finishes. Constructed using methods barely in use in contemporary garment manufacturing - such as triple chainstiching, bar tacking, flat felled seams, etc. - and all made in Canada using North American and Japanese fabrics.
Manufacturing in Toronto
Klaxon Howl prides itself on using the best manufacturing available in Canada.
Klaxon Howl Toronto Store
The Klaxon Howl store has been open since 2005, designed and built by Matt Robinson.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Klaxon Howl produces all clothing locally and has over 10 years of production experience in Toronto, so we will encounter no problems with producing the items made available for the Rewards.
Finding a space in New York for a permanent, or Pop-up, space is time consuming and expensive, and will be the biggest challenge but with a network of contact it's something we look forward to as part of the growth of the brand.
You can actually just pledge the two amounts together, so if you got the Brushed Chambray and the shorts it would be $85 + $98. If you are outside the USA then add shipping. Then when the event is over, we sort out sizes and what not.

ABOUT : "Robert Capa's masterful photographs of The Spanish Civil War portrayed the brutality of battle while exposing a poignant yearning for civilian normalcy among its idealistic combatants. Frontlines, inspired by Capa's indelible scenes from the first 'media war', reminds us that the camaraderie of men drawn by a sense of duty to an imperfect moral calling can reveal fleeting moments of disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy.Estimated delivery:Add $5 USD to ship outside the US
