Fabric Ethos - Navas Lab Clothing

Navas Lab has become a trusted choice for clothing tailored to tall men and made with high-quality, locally-sourced fabric. Shortcuts aren't our thing - we make sure every piece is made with environmentally-friendly fabric that feels as good as it looks.

We source the best fabrics for our community of tall guys, and we are proud to stand by our original mission and remain based in Canada even as our business grows.

Made Ethically, Sustainably, Locally and to Perform for the Everyday Tall and Slim Guy

When Navas was founded in 2014, we wanted to make clothes that fit tall men but also make fabric locally when possible.

Back then, options were limited and people even laughed, "Why don't you make it overseas? It's cheaper." But we wanted to grow alongside local businesses and support our community. So, we continue this choice and practice it whenever possible.

Now, turn the clocks to the present, and we've covered some ground. But we're always searching for new opportunities, just like the name Navas, which stands tall for navigating.

When you shop Navas Lab, you can rest assured you're getting exceptional quality, ethical fabric that you can wear for years to come. We have done our research and found the best local textile mills to give us amazing Canadian fabrics that make for smart and stylish activewear.

We love supporting our local community as we navigate the world of sustainable, ethical fashion for tall guys together.

Why Bamboo Fabric?

The majority of our fabric contains a high percentage of bamboo. Why you ask?
Firstly, bamboo is a sustainable material that grows in abundance. In fact, it's one of the fastest-growing plants reaching 80 feet in just 40 days! Even tall guys don't grow that fast.

Bamboo requires less water and pesticides compared to cotton. Moreover, it has natural wicking and antimicrobial properties, which is essential for any active tall guy. Bamboo's breathability and super softness aren't bad attributes to have as well.

We might be slightly biased, but we strongly believe our bamboo fabric is some of the best. We simply wouldn't use it if we didn't trust in the integrity of our locally sourced textiles.

The more comfortable you are in your tall guy clothing, the more confidence you can have in your daily life. Give our bamboo base tall clothing a try and you won’t want to go back to anything else!

Layering is Key

Whether you're a tall guy riding your bike, playing video games, or simply mucking about, proper layering is essential. Easily controlling your body temperature and breathability is key for the everyday.

Here is how we at Navas Lab have designed out layers for ultimate comfort:

  • Light layers are thin and extra wicking to be worn close to the body
  • Mid-layers are thicker and more insulating
  • Heavy layers like hoodies and sweaters layered over top

We tall guys know the troubles of finding clothes that fit. That’s why Navas Lab set out to fix it in the best possible way with tall guys in mind.

We prototype each layer of clothing on our 6'6" co-founder to ensure the proper fit before going to market. Our smooth, soft fabrics are perfect for layering, so you can stay comfortable no matter what the season.

Our tall guy underlayer t-shirts are made from bamboo and organic cotton blend that’s perfect for layering underneath a long-sleeve shirt or hoodie. There is no need to worry about breaking into a sweat when layering with Navas Lab clothing. The natural wicking and antimicrobial properties of our fabric are guaranteed to keep you comfortable all the time.
