Introducing Cardinal of Canada’s New 2016/17 Fall & Winter Collection

This year’s Cardinal of Canada Fall/Winter collection holds true to our founder, Sam Ray’s commitment to designing the finest coats possible for the demands of winter, while hitting the mark on what classic style in a city should look like. 

Now in the hands of the 3rd generation, Sam’s grandsons have introduced these coats into leading retailers like Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, but for the first time ever, we’re excited to bring them directly to you.

This year’s lineup retains the same quality of tailoring that has become synonymous with Cardinal and each coat has been meticulously designed for both function and style – from travel by day, to evening affairs. This year’s coat details are unmatched to anything we’ve released in previous collections, as we’ve endeavoured to infuse even more comfort and optionality into each well-rounded jacket. With doubled layering, detailed closures, and our cleanest lines yet; the Cardinal design team feels confident in saying that Sam would be proud.

For ease of experience, we’ve individually introduced each coat below –right down to the threads– to help you distinguish and get to know each one.

Bastien

The Bastien is a sophisticated and serene take on the modern double-breasted coat. Made entirely from Italian wool, the herringbone-pattern is what sets this coat apart from any other in our lineup. The detailed threading adds texture and depth to this coat,  unmatched to any other Cardinal option, and is a tailored fit for a clean-lined silhouette. The side pockets are angled for a touch of contemporary, but still grounded in appeal as an understated option to a classic double-breasted topcoat.

  • Materials: 100% Italian Wool  
  • Inside Features: Full lining

 Mont-Royal

The Mont-Royal is a classic car coat silhouette made from fine wool and perfect for both dressed-up or dressed-down occasions. What really differentiates this coat is it’s double layered approach for extra warmth, with a zipper and layered button closure. The doubled layering runs from the very top of the coat with a stand-up collar and concealed knit rib, down the entire length and complete with a diamond quilted warmer on the inside. This coat was specifically built to withstand colder winter weather without losing any of the detailed trims you’d expect from a classic topcoat.

The Saint-Pierre is our luxury classic fit topcoat carefully crafted from the finest cashmere to bring together class and refinement in a powerful combination. It features a 3-button closure with polished finishes, buttoned cuffs and a notched lapel to add richness and depth. This coat was built with quality materials to handle colder weather while at the same time holding court; whether in the boardroom or a black tie affair.

Leclaire


The Leclaire is the perfect mix of luxury, warmth and style and doubles up in many regards where details are concerned. Our favourite feature on this coat is its double horizontal right side pocket to give it a contemporary look. Each additional pocket is completely functional, with the top flap pockets featuring side entry welts for style and easy access. The inside of the coat has our signature Cardinal chest pocket detailing for convenience style, then for added warmth you can find a removable inner bib zipper enclosure and knit bib collar wrapping up to the neck for full winter protection. We weren’t exaggerating when we said this coat is doubled up. The tailoring on this twill coat was finely built for style and made from a luxury wool and cashmere blend so you can be promised for winter warmth, while wrapped in urban style.

Saint-Paul

The Saint-Paul is a sharp slim fit single-breasted coat, woven with a blend of wool and cashmere. To ensure a refined and fitted silhouette, attention has been paid to the detailing and the coat’s profile to emanate exceptionally clean lines. The details are in its 3-button closure, buttoned cuffs, signature Cardinal chest inside pockets and slashed entry outter pockets. The Saint-Paul is a great alternative to our Saint-Pierre, if you’re looking for a slimmer fit with the same luxury and appeal.
