Magazine for Textiles, Clothing, Leather and Technology

For Fall 2020, Reigning Champ continues its longstanding partnership with textile solutions provider Polartec®. Their first complete collection together comprises training and lifestyle products, using a range of breathable fabric technologies for performance-driven versatility.

Manufactured entirely in Reigning Champ’s Vancouver-based facility, the capsule collection features a range of Polartec®’s award-winning material innovations — Power Air™, Power Wool™, Power Dry®, Thermal Pro®, and Power Stretch® Pro™ — harnessing the strengths of advanced fibers to create highly functional, technologically sound athletic wear.

Drawing endless inspiration from the classic sport of boxing, we follow the life of emerging Canadian boxer and 2021 Olympic prospect, Triston Brookes. A two-time middleweight champion from Mississauga, Ontario, his story is one of true grit, relentless fight, and sheer perseverance, both inside and outside the ring. Early morning runs at dawn and countless hours spent at the gym serve as a backdrop to the superior versatility and high-performance attributes of our collaborative Polartec® series.

The featured short film, directed by Toronto-based photographer Norman Wong, captures the fighter in his element — sprinting, sparring, and honing his craft. An original score, created by musical polymath Charles Spearin (of Broken Social Scene), sets the pace for Tristan’s intensifying training session as he pushes physical and mental limits to their highest peaks.

Priced from 80 USD to 420 USD, this limited release will be available starting November 17th at all Reigning Champ flagship stores, End Clothing, Backcountry, Browns, Blends, Nordstrom, Ron Herman Japan, Martin Patrick 3, Worksout Korea, and online at,, and
