MONTREAL – THE MONTREAL CANADIENS and OFF THE HOOK are pleased to announce the second installment of their popular CH x OTH capsule collection, building off last year’s popular debut collection. The second CH x OTH collection offers fans a chance to expand their wardrobe and offers fans a contemporary and casual take on the famed hockey team.
Last season, the CH x OTH line introduced a players-exclusive jacket that had fans clamoring for its general release. After a year of waiting, those same fans will finally have an opportunity to purchase a limited “2015-2016” edition of the same varsity jacket. Like last year, the jacket was produced in partnership with renowned Canadian manufacturer Roots.
Building off last year’s popular apparel, OFF THE HOOK has added a new t-shirt to the collection, featuring an athletic-style “CDH” logo, which abbreviates the team’s name, le Club de Hockey. Furthermore, the second installment of the CH x OTH collection revisits reimagines the popular rugby jersey with a more contemporary approach. The grey and white rugby was produced in Canada, by Barbarian, and features a stitched “Montreal” nameplate, as well as a captain’s “C”.
This season, the collection includes a figurine keychaiN featuring the CH x OTH tri-color stripe, as well as two patches, one mimicking the captain’s “C”, which appears on the CH x OTH rugby, and a second one mimicking a vintage-style hockey puck. Once again, the two brands have re-imagined the traditional hockey puck and have produced a limited number, featuring a co-branded front and the collection’s tri-color stripes on the back.
The jacket is constructed from premium wool and features premium black leather sleeves, as well as white leather accents and brass snap buttons. The jackets have “19” and “09” embroidered on the sleeves, representing the year the storied hockey club was founded. A stylized “C” sits atop the left breast, while a Montreal Canadiens logo can be found on the inner left breast, sitting above the wearer’s heart. The jackets will be available for pre-order and will be embroidered with the customer’s initials on the right inner breast pocket, and numbered in tonal stitching on the left sleeve cuff.
The second installment of the CH x OTH line will be available exclusively through OFF THE HOOK, Tricolore Sports, and their respective webstores, as of 10am EST on Thursday, November 5th, 2015. PREORDERS FOR THE CH x OTH JACKET WILL BE ACCEPTED AT OFF THE HOOK AND TRICOLORE SPORTS FROM THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH, THRU SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH.
