Wordans Guide to Canadian Layering

Wordans: Layering in Canada

By: Fashionista B

 Wordans is working to put together fashion lines specifically for Canadians and Canadian weather! We Canadians, old and new, always struggle to get through the winter without looking like abominable snowpeople! Sometimes on cold days, we think the more layers the more warmth, however, there is a technique to beat Old Man Winter at his game with Canadian Layering.

I’ve been living in Canada for 30 years and after much trial and error, I have finally figured out the best technique for dressing in layers without sacrificing my comfort or style.

Layering is more difficult than it sounds. For instance, on a typical winter day you are walking through -20 weather and then jumping on the subway train that is +15. So how can you get to work without sweating like crazy but still being warm?

The most recent winter forecast from Global News suggests that a large portion of Canada is going to be covered in snow, so you are going to need clothing that keeps you warm, dry and mobile. Try Canadian Layering!

So…without further ado.. here are my 3 steps to Canadian Layering…

The First Layer

Your first layer should be a cotton or silk blend. A material that will absorb any sweat and pull it away from your bare skin. This is the most important layer to your entire outfit and finding a shirt with great material and looks good can be a challenge.

Featured here are the women’s Gildan 5400L and our men’s Gildan 5400 cotton shirts. These are both available in a variety of colours and are almost 100% cotton. Our women’s shirt has a tapered waist and double stitching on the edges to give it a relaxed look. Our men’s shirt is a pre-shrunk jersey knit, that has a wonderful texture and sits well on any body type.

The Second Layer

Your second layer should consist of warmer materials. This layer should provide excellent coverage, as well as insulation. Hoodies, zip-up sweaters, or anything with fleece works great for this layer. I am featuring here the Gildan G186FL Ladies and the Gildan 18600 Mens sweaters. They are both zip up’s which tend to minimize layering bulk. It also makes it much easier to remove layers as needed when getting onto the metro, or riding in a hot car or bus.

The Final Layer…

The final layer, your jacket. One of the benefits of layering on top of a cotton or silk layer is that by the time you put on your coat you don’t feel or look bulky. You can switch your jacket layer from a heavy to a lightweight jacket depending on the temperature. Your jacket should not only have a warm liner but also a water-resistant shell. The shell is important because when it is snowing, the snow melts and can seep through your jacket and layers. The Ash City North End men’s 3 in 1 Jacket and the Devon & Jones ladies Jacket are both warm and waterproof.

Have a great winter!! Stay Warm!

New organic t-shirts !

Wordans has a ton of new cool Anvil products for you and guess what!? Some of these products are eco-friendly … What does that mean? Does it mean you can eat your t-shirt? Well, not really (only if you have nothing else to eat). It means that the cotton used by the brand is grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural fertilizers or pesticides and they only use non-genetically modified plants.  The organic cotton from the United-States must meet the requirements enforced by the National Organic Program, in order to be considered organic.  Wordans is always looking for the best products for you and we love when they’re eco-friendly ! Get your own customized print on an eco-friendly t-shirt now and make the difference!  Order now !

Celebrate Canada Day with a t-shirt from Wordans

Canada Day is right around the corner, but you probably already know that. After all, it’s the holiday that marks the real beginning of summer in Canada

Whether you like to display your national pride at one of the many parades, concerts, fireworks shows and other events that happen across the country, or you’d prefer to just kick back with some friends and family at one of the countless backyard barbecues that happen on this day, you’re ready for Canada Day. Well, almost ready. Have you thought about what you’re going to wear?

Since it’s summer, it’s too hot for long sleeved shirts, so while it’s time to wear your pride on your chest, those long-sleeved Team Canada jerseys just won’t cut it. This is most definitely t-shirt weather and Wordans has quite a few custom-designed Canada-themed t-shirt options for you to choose from. If you want to get a bit more specific, we have tees made just for Canada Day. You could also celebrate your country with a bit of civic or provincial pride. Wordans has quite a few designs dedicated to the various cities and provinces that make up Canada.

Of course, the best way to celebrate Canada is to throw a bit of originality into the mix. Why not think up how you can best convey your pride and create your own custom-designed Canada Day tee. With Wordans, it’s quite easy to do. In fact, it only takes three steps: pick your product, upload your images and/or text and then get the best deal possible.

And speaking of savings, Wordans also has a real sweet deal on bulk printing. So if you want to give everyone at your Canada Day party a shirt that celebrates everyone being together on this day that they can keep to remember it or if you’re planning a merch table at a public Canada Day event that you’re organizing in your community, then opt for screen printing instead of digital.

This also means that you won’t have to wait that long to get your shirts. July 1st is in less than two weeks, so if you order in the next few days, you can be sure that you’ll get your Canada Day t-shirt purchases out of the way and in your hands, leaving enough time to plan the rest of your event or just kick back and relax.
