My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. With today’s fashion story, we say goodbye to January and holiday euphoria with the hope that the new year 2023 will bring us some new interesting challenges.
Today we are meeting again with an interesting Canadian brand HiSO. A walk by the river can be stylish as you see in a more elegant version with classic trousers. HiSO, formally known as Hide Society, is a brand that is Canadian to the core. With sustainability and fashion development in mind, they have been successfully making luxury jackets and coats from alpaca, wool and shearling for decades. Every step in the creation of clothing, the HiSO brand takes an environmentally conscious approach when creating its products. Originally founded in the fashion district of Toronto, the brand has grown from a small family boutique to an internationally recognized brand.
HiSO is one of the most famous Canadian brands for making winter jackets and coats. Due to extremely harsh climatic conditions, the expert team of this brand is here to overcome all weather conditions and to design and adapt winter clothing pieces that you will love. What is the secret of this brand’s success?
All processes starting from procurement and design to final production, HiSO controls every step of the creative and production process, which makes this brand special. HiSO was formerly known as the Hide Society, which has become synonymous with the art and luxury of jackets and coats since 1975, nearly half a century of tradition. Impressive, isn’t it?
The family company, which is currently successfully managed by the second generation, was founded in Canada. The HiSO company provides superior quality and design in each of its garments, which is woven with 45 years of experience that can be felt in every detail. Headquartered in Toronto, with special offices in Berlin and a production facility in Poland, HiSO quickly became the world’s leading manufacturer of leather and shearling outerwear.
A little more than 20 years ago, inspired by their hard work and building a family business from an early age, twin brothers Karl and Mark took over the leadership of the company with a new mission – to reposition and raise the brand to the world level, thus introducing the new name HiSO (short for Hide Society).
Their goal was to revive the classic vision of coats and jackets where they would combine fashion with the functionality of everyday life. Their vision brought completely new innovative designs while still retaining the luxurious materials leather, fur and fabrics of exceptional quality that this brand is known for.
With the great desire to expand the range of products, the rebranding also led to the expansion into the world of precious fabrics (cashmere, wool and alpacas). HiSO purchased a factory in Toronto where all precious fiber clothing is now produced. Shearling and leather jackets are still produced at HiSO’s European facility in Poland.
Soon after the brand transformation, HiSO became a favorite global name known for its Black Label division targeting new markets. In the fall of 2020, a new inspiration appeared.
Based on the results achieved and built on the success of the HiSO Black Line, the White Label was born! Following the modern market of luxury and prestige, the White Label collection “dazzles” all fashion lovers with its creations who cannot satisfy their appetite for new fashion trends.
HiSO is one of the few brands that actively engages in an ecological approach to sustainable fashion through every step of creating its garments. Whether it’s alpaca, cashmere, wool or leather montons, HiSO works exclusively with environmentally conscious companies, ensuring the best methods and materials used to protect the environment.
HiSO leather and fur are of ethical origin, as they are a by-product of the food industry. Using this product basically returns all those materials that would otherwise be disposed of and thus waste would be created. Shearling leather and fur are natural materials obtained from tanneries that support sustainability according to international standards that regulate animal by-products from their origin to the moment they are produced for final use.
Respecting and maintaining the vision of shared values is maintained by HiSO through cooperation with suppliers who have like-minded views on the importance of sustainability. The benefits of this cooperation include: respect for the right to clean water, energy, energy management and reduced emissions and recycling.
The Tennant shearling coat that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of the highest quality shearling and fur with the addition of silver fox fur on the collar. When you buy your HiSO garment, you can always contact their team who will be at your disposal to help you choose the ideal piece for you or your loved one.
Also, this brand offers tailor-made jackets and coats, so you can get a piece that will fit you. In addition, you can choose the type of material (shearling, leather or fabric) as well as the type of fur and color. HiSO is a brand that strives to fulfill all the needs and wishes of customers in the right way and to be part of the HiSO family with pleasure.
