Thread Theory, new menswear pattern brand
Thread Theory is a new Canadian pattern house led by Morgan and Matthew Meredith from Vancouver Island. Morgan does the designing, while Matthew, the self proclaimed computer nerd,
is the photographer and ideas-man
The brands first collection, named the Parkland Collection, consists of four patterns. Three of which are in print now:
1. The Newcastle Cardigan
2. The Strathcona Henley and T-Shirt
3. The Jedediah Pants.
4. The Goldstream Peacoat (coming soon)
The Newcastle cardigan is a cosy knit-cardigan with a shawl collar and customisable shoulder and back yoke. While the Strathcona Henley and T-Shirt is a great basic pattern that can be made up with long or short sleeves and with either a crew-neck or a 1 inch henley placket (that’s the buttony bit). Alternatively, it can be made in a heavier knit as a sweater. The Jedediah Pants and Shorts are a chino style slim trouser, which can be made either in a heavy fabric such as denim or twill, or made in a light summer fabric such as linen.
Aside from these patterns being stylish and accessible to beginners, it’s also worth mentioning the packaging is very eye-catching too, and would make great presents for keen dressmakers.
