Friday Finds: What We Wore

I’m going to try to post a Friday finds, things we find on the internet that are locally made or made with a fair wage.  I know that it can be quite a task to search for stylish fun fashion fun food, home accessories and so forth.  Since I’m doing this with our family, I thought I would share some of the things we have found on the interweb.

American Apparel red hoodie and hand-me down second hand pants. I like getting their kids stuff for basics.  They do get a lot of controversy for their racy ads but I like the fact that it’s American made clothing.

ibex-1Ibex jacket.  They specialize in Merino wool wear.  This jacket uses New Zealand wool and it’s made in the USA.  I spoke to the nice shop folks at the store here in Seattle and they are aiming to have most of their clothing made in the USA by 2015. T’s new favourite jacket. Super lightweight but also very warm.  Great for this Pacific Northwest weather. This jacket is available for sale in the wintertime.  It does have a hefty price tag at $325 because it is using fine merino wool material.

1. Birks – I live in these all summer long. Made in Germany. A pair lasts at least 5 years. I still have a pair of clogs from my Toronto days which is now 13 years ago.  I love them!

2. Hudson jeans – I looked through all the labels of jeans for T at Nordstrom rack and I found these cool jeans that are made in the USA with imported European fabric. I love the name of this style which is called “Dandy Slouchy Straight”.  Great relaxed fit for men but not overly loose.  It looks awesome on my 5 ft 11 ish guy.

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend!
