Navas Lab 2 — Bamboo Hoody

CA$ 14,497

Our products are designed to actually fit your tall, slender stature - no more too-short sleeves, ballooning bodies or unintentional flood pants.

Instead, we create t-shirts, hoodies and shorts that are as comfortable in fit as they are in material (bamboo FTW), specifically designed for tall, athletic men.

Though we're all about the fit at Navas, there are a few other considerations we take very seriously in our designs:

Bamboo, baby! This is one of the most sustainable materials on the planet because of the speed at which bamboo grows. It's also hella soft, holds is shape and quality, and feels niiiiiiice next to your skin.

No sweatshops, ever. End of story. We produce almost everything in Canada. When we do have to look elsewhere, we have annoyingly high standards for our partners.

As stated above, wherever possible, we partner with local companies and make our stuff in Vancouver. We know how hard it is to make a go of a small business in this city, and we're all about supporting our brothers-in-arms.

With the funds from this Kickstarter, we'll go into production on two new products that our tall guy converts are amped about: The Hawkins 2, and the Mac. You can read more about those below.

—and yes: we name our products after Predator characters.

The softest, most versatile hoodie you've ever worn.

Medium weigh bamboo fleece in a streamlined design. Two front pockets, phone sleeve and metal zipper. Good for bombing around the city on your bike, camping, or hitting the pub for a few pints.

 The long-sleeved tee you wear every. Single. Day. (Without complaint.)

Made from bamboo lycra, the Mac is a long-sleeved shirt that fits like a tee and feels like a million bucks. Perfect for layering, keeps its shape and colour, and looks just as good under a blazer as it does under a down vest.

**Both designs are a long, slim fit and come in the full range of sizes (small to extra-extra large & tall), including our very special "Medium Tall" for the extra slender tall man.

Our items will be ready well before the holidays, so have no fear - you've just found the perfect gift for the tall man in your life. Hawkins 2 and the Mac also make great birthday, anniversary, bar mitzvah, bachelor party and graduation gifts.

 

 

Risks and challenges

Mill & Dying Time - Our fabric is custom milled to our specification from an organic mill in Ontario. It takes weeks to mill and dye the fabric, so the sooner we hit our target, the sooner we can order fabric and get the process started.

Colour - For every $5,000 we go over our target we can add another colour or variant to the design. Until then, we'll just be offering the basics.

Product Quality - shrinks 1-2% of total size and pills minimally - much higher quality than cotton.
