Gaardhagen & Kanaljen is a unique collection of men's clothing produced by ourselves by fabrics in 100% linen from some of Europe's remaining linen fabrics.
Almost all of our linen suits are made according to historical models from the early 1900 century. Like the originals, the jackets are lined with banded edges on the inside to get as cool and malleable as possible. Despite its simple construction, the linen costume has always had its obvious place in each gentleman's wardrobe. People have often seen royalty and famous people take pride in their costumes. For example, Theodor Roosevelt was mentioned during his inspection of the Panama Canal 1910, when he allowed himself to be photographed in his white linen suit and Panama hat or Mark Twain, which after he started using linen costume was rarely seen elsewhere during the summer.
All jackets and suits eventually become the "wearer's garments" they adapt the wearer's body shape and movement pattern, thus becoming completely unique. Often you can't even tell that two gentlemen are wearing the same original model.
