18 Waits is a quality fashion brand based in Canada, though the founder and creative director studied at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. He brought his expertise back to Canada to launch this brand, which stocks a variety of different fashion and clothing products. You’ll find printed shirts, bandanas, masks, hats, and ties, as well as fabrics, vintage products, and a line of kid’s wear based on the same principles.
This company creates vibrant pieces based on the finer, simple things in life. They use fine fabrics to create beautiful pieces that are meant to be worn over and over again, reducing the need for a ‘fast fashion’ mindset. Though they are made with quality materials, they are meant to be worn out, as timeless pieces that remain staples in your wardrobe.
