Tita Tuesday – Dimes Brand

“Clothes & lifestyle lessons from the Pacific NorthWest”

It’s not as egocentric as it sounds…

“Clothes & lifestyle lessons from the Pacific NorthWest” 
As some of you may know, I’ve been working on a little clothing project for just over a year now…
Summer Essentials 2013
Originally a pet project, engineered to investigate the inside of the apparel industry, Dimes Brand has recently begun to take shape in a new and exciting way!
In February I travelled to Hong Kong, and China on a bit of recognizance mission for clients, and seized the opportunity to get some hands on experience of garment design, production, import.  
The result is a brand new direction for Dimes Brand, taking it from fun Summer tees, to Fall, and Winter garments, designed, and created from scratch in one of the best run factories in Asia!
Of course, it just wouldn’t have been summer without the BC special – Summer Essentials tee.  This year we updated it to reach a wider audience, and introduce our new fave colour – orange!

There is just one Small, and one Large left in the shop – If you haven’t gotten your hands on one yet, now’s your chance!

Additional items were produced for experience, and quality control, including pocket tees, and hoodies.

But as the leaves turn, and the temperature drops, it’s this Dimes Brand flannel that I’m super excited about!
Available in two colour ways, and featuring fun details like embroidery, and complimentary polka dot lining, these super soft, but structured flannels are the only thing I plan to wear from here on in…

Buttoned up, or buttoned down, it’s a versatile, wearable piece that I am incredibly proud of!

To graduate so quickly from developing screen printed t-shirts, to design of full scale original garments, is not something I could have ever imagined for myself.  This process has been incredibly educational, and enlightening on many levels.  I have a new found appreciation for not only the street wear industry, but all of the players from the start to very end of the production line.

These garments are in production now, and pre-sales begin very soon…  The response I’ve had from the parties involved, and the models who have sampled them is really positive!  I can’t wait to see the rest of my community, and friends, and followers in these clothes.  What do you think?!?  They’re definitely “A Perfect Ten” in my eyes.
