Canada Goose X Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony and Canada Goose got together to create a collection using paisley. Canada Goose was founded out of the passion for exploration, their products are designed to withstand the coldest elements. Opening Ceremony has been a staple expression of individualism and personal style in New York City since their doors opened. So the two worked together to merge both of their attributes. Both parties worked on the Langford parka and Chilliwack bomber, using paisley prints on either the outer shell or inner lining. The Chilliwack comes in black, purple chestnut and dark sage color-ways, while the Langford options are anchor blue, dark sage and black.

Penfield Apex Parka

Penfield’s Apex Parka easily transitions from Fall through Winter into Spring. The down filled military style parka has a simple construction and  clean finish, making it versatile for any style aesthetic or cooler season. It is made from Enfield’s signature shell fabric, a tightly woven mix of cotton and polyester, that works with the down insulation to do its thing. The raglan sleeves allows for an ease of movement through the arms and shoulders, which makes the Apex parka ideal for camping and outdoor activities. The down insulated hood keeps the head warm and dry from rain. And the internal down collar adds extra warmth and comfort, as well as loads of easily accessible pockets for storage, making it perfect for a morning subway commute.

Rime’s Got You Covered For Winter.

It took a while for the weather to really start getting cold in NYC, and now that it’s finally here Rime has a selection of coats ready to brave the cold weather. One of the lines currently at our shops is Pajar, a Canadian brand which uses the Canadian pride, the cold, to offer comfortable and appealing outerwear. They’re constantly reinventing outerwear in innovative ways, to produce high quality products. One of the standout pieces we’re currently carrying is the Nikolai coat, a luxe parka with an unlikely button closure instead of a zipper, and a coyote fur lining the front and hood, with duck down filling—that provides exceptional warmth. The Nylon butter shell is also water resistant. This is an essential coat for those really cold days to come. So stop by Rime and see what else we’ve got to offer.

Canada Goose: Sweat the details

The history to how the company came to be Canada Goose, Inc is a fascinating one. In the early 50′s the company was Metro Sports Ltd, later to be named Snow Goose, and ultimately Canada Goose. The Arctic Disk was created in the 90′s, but has since experienced changes and natural variations over the years of growth.

Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada over fifty years ago, Canada Goose was poised to be recognized internationally as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear. Dani Reiss, third generation owner and CEO, risked everything by re-branding his family’s OEM product making business into Canada Goose, and it paid off. Today, the company is an industry leader and strong example for the “made in Canada” movement — one that consumers continue to embrace on a global scale. Rime is honored to be carry some of the brands finest examples from C.G. this autumn and when the temperature drops you can count on seeing me in one. As they say birds of a feather flock together so if your interested in joining this elite club then stick close to this blog for further updates as to when product will be hitting the shop floor.

Protect-Ya-Neck: Part Two

The secret of Moncler’s magic formula is Duvet, aka down, which means “feather” in French and comes primarily from aquatic birds raised in the South of Brittany and in Perigord. Here the climate and land, with it’s wealth of rivers and lakes, stimulates the production of the feathers by the animal allowing producers to certify the origin of the birds and follow the proper techniques for removing the down. Moncler uses about 220 grams for a man’s down jacket and and 160 grams for a woman’s down jacket. Down thus becomes one of the main components of the garment, and it’s quality determines the quality of the brand. Down is comprised of two elements. The first includes tufts and barbules: parts of the plumage taken from the stomach and below the wings of the birds. The second is plumules, similar to feathers but much smaller and softer. Moncler uses duvet neuf, down with four tufts, which the Ministry of Heath declares is the best quality on the market. In fact, the composition percentage determines its puffiness and thermal insulation, which accounts for 85 percent of the garment’s insulating power and unique lightness. Over fifty years of experience in handling down has allowed Moncler to establish specific coefficients for garments with a mathematically precise ratio between the square centimeters of surface area of the garment and the down contained in it. Basically what all of this boils down to is if you find yourself lost in the harsh arctic landscape of the planet Holth and there is a storm a brewing, this jacket will spare you from having to cut open your Tonton and climb inside it in order to save your hide!

 

Over the years Moncler began shifting from a well-respected French outerwear company into an international fashion powerhouse, a transformation that began in the 1980 with a collaboration with designer Chantel Thomas that lasted up until 1989. Continuing the transformation, in 1999 the first spring/summer collection was presented, and in 2002, for the brands fiftieth anniversary, a couture collection was presented. Then in 2003, a love of challenges prompted Como-based entrepreneur Remo Ruffini to take over the Moncler brand, of which he is now the creative director. His main strategy was to launch a global quilted jacket for all occasions, retracing the brand’s history and returning to the roots of the Grenoble-born quilted jacket whilst giving it a new fit. The dream for the future proved to be the perfect equation: Moncler equals quilted jackets, and quilted jackets equal Moncler.

Protect-Ya-Neck: Part One

Folks, let’s talk protection…from the elements that is. Moncler is a famous name that should be familiar to anyone who loves the outdoors or is simply in need of the best protection from Mother Nature, but few know that the name is an abbreviation of Monestier de Clermont, a place near Gernoble, where in 1952 René Ramillon and André Vincent founded what would become one of the most famous companies in the Outdoor industry. Ramillon was the best known manufacturer of mountain equipment in the city, who’s innovative talents were demonstrated by the dozens of patents he acquired. Over the years, the much loved professional quality of Moncler’s products had been perfected with the help of mountain climbers, the French Army and alpine skiers such as Lionel Terray.

 

The first time down was utilized in jacket form was in 1952 for factory workers in France who wore them over their overalls inside the plant during the coldest months of the year. They probably looked more like blue boxes than clothes in those days, but not to Lionel Terray. He had just returned from an expedition in Canada, and the goose down-filled jackets must have seemed like the ideal solution to someone who had been driven to the frigid limit in the pursuit of extreme conquests.

 

Moncler and Terray’s experiments were continually tested and perfected in the field. In 1954 the brand’s down-jackets were were chosen to equip the Italian Karakorum expedition, which culminated with the conquest of the second highest peak on Earth. They became the official supplier of the French national alpine skiing team, who participated in the 1968 Winter Olympics. Moncler even changed their logo for this special occasion to the little rooster they are recognized for today. Further developments occurred in 1972 when the French team asked for a decisive change from the double-down jackets to a single garment that would be easier to wear but still suitable for the harsh temperatures of the high mountains. This lighter, more manageable garment helped warm the muscles before races and, in essence, became the current Moncler down jacket.

Chill Out

We know times are hard, summer has faded away, and the future is uncertain. So if you are in need of a solid winter jacket that will keep the chill off your back and insulate your wallet from the economy, we have you covered. Penfield, the Massachusetts outerwear company that has built a reputation for making the highest-quality down-filled jackets, fleece and outerwear, has just dropped the first pieces of their fall collection at Rime, but they are going fast. The Rockwool model above features a Teflon coated 60/40 cotton nylon shell that cannot be beaten for near weightless comfort and easy care. Plus at this price you might just have enough leftover to cover your rent for the month.

 

Penfield garments are designed to stand up to the demands of a NY climate, yet are equally at home sheltering you from a storm anywhere the wind blows. The Kasson (above), is a staff favorite here at Rime because of it’s naturally breathable Teflon coating, which is tremendously strong and sheds water easily. It has a snap-over storm flap with inside zipper, velcro adjustable cuffs, and plaid lining. But you don’t need to take my word for it–more styles are on the way so you should have no problem finding that perfect jacket for your needs.
