Muttonhead is a unisex sportswear brand that believes in practicing fair trade and manufactures all garments in Toronto, Canada.
Inspired by a time when garments were valued for their functionality, Muttonhead combines classic shapes with season-less styles.
In 1993, California’s Lynn Hill did something that no one on earth (man or woman) had ever done. With her partner Brooke Sandahl, she became the first person to free climb one of the most famous rock summits in the world, The Nose of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. Prior to this, The Nose stood tall as one of the hardest and most famous routes on the California big wall and in the world. It had been climbed before, many times actually, but never free climbed.
New Arrivals from Toronto’s Muttonhead! All made in Canada (famous for its terrycloth).
The Crewneck Sweat & 5 Panel hat are in collaboration with Raised by Wolves, another street wear up and comer from the land of the Maple.
The Field Jacket is a standout piece, and our favorite of the delivery; Wool overshirt construction with two tone paneling and a yoke that contrasts in both color and texture, this thing is handsome and aggressive and (best for last) warm
so come buy this stuff before all of our coworkers do

A year ago we blogged about a Kickstarter project called Compas Green, a year later “We are looking to get more trucks and teachers so that we can be more regional and reach a wider audience,” Justin says. “We’re applying for grants and sponsorship from ethical businesses so that we can offer our project for free in underprivileged schools.”
Why not ask Nick and Justin to drive to your town in their DIY mobile greenhouse and educate your community on sustainability and Biointensive mini-farming?
“We teach all ages, kindergarten through university level, and our community workshops have seen a few septuagenarians. We tend to focus on high schools and universities though, because we can go more deeply into full-spectrum sustainability with those students.”
You don’t even have to feel bad about them driving a big truck across the country because it is run on waste vegetable oil! To read more follow their website and head over to treehugger for the rest of their interview.
This is a pretty inspiring story of a repurposed/salvaged designer named Ariele Alasko from Brooklyn who drove across the US in a 16 foot truck and stopping at abandoned, diners, farms, junk stores and other decrepit places along the way. After the trip she ended up in California with a truck of old materials to build a restaurant entirely from scratch.
Over six months she built everything herself from lamp fixtures, cutlery drawers, tables, and more. Check out her blog Brooklyn to West to see more of her work.
