Clarendon Trading Co. 

Curating the world’s best fashion.  

I had the pleasure of finding this brand at a thrifting event held by 613 Flea. I fell in love with their mission: to sustainably and affordably curate products to make fashion accessible to all. Not only this, but Clarendon Trading Co. is also Toronto based; the pair of jeans I bought from Clarendon Trading Co. remain my favourite pair to this day!
