We started the Navas in 2015 to address a number of things we saw in the market:
1. To Serve Long Fit Athletic People.
We all know a guy who has to size up to get the sleeve length he needs. Most brands would have you think that people get incredibly wide as they get taller. In reality most people just get slimmer as they get taller. We are creating some new options.
2. Local Vancouver Manufacturing.
We want to make premium apparel in Vancouver. We don't feel the need to involve international shipping companies in our dream to make quality apparel. We like designing and sampling quickly with people we know, people we can drive across town to meet.
3. Simple Wearing.
Our products are simple and elegant, focussing on fit, style and cut. Simple apparel that has more of what you want and less of what you don't need. The clothes should speak for themselves.
