OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
We are passionate about every, single step of creating a Cardinal of Canada garment. Each stage of development is carefully planned and meticulously crafted, from design that is informed by style and function to the selection of fine fabrics to precise cutting to hand sewn finishing to the final quality control inspection.
To ensure superior quality, we design at our closeknit headquarters in Montreal and craft at our very own atelier based in Ningbo, China. Many of our master tailors are second or third generation tailors, drawing upon the rich tradition of the famed Hongbang Ningbo tailors who, since 150 years ago, have been known as the "Savile Row" of Asia.
At the same time, we have pioneered the blending of state of the art technology with traditional tailoring. We combine modern techniques such as the latest CAD software and precision fabric cutting machinery with old age craftsmanship such as full basted canvas construction –so rarely seen today– hand shaped collars and lapels, hand set sleeves, and hand sewn shank buttons.
We travel the world to discover the right fabrics that will bring out the best in every garment. We work with centuries’ old Italian mills as well as international producers to carefully select fabrics that are luxurious, soft to the touch and oftentimes technically advanced to provide warmth, comfort and weatherproofing.
The result is a garment that you will cherish for many years to come–a garment that only gets better with age.
