Last week we got to check out the launch and speak with store manager, Franklyn Duberry about M0851‘s F/W collection. The brand that was formally known as Rugby North America began 25 years ago in Montreal by Frédéric Mamarbachi and specializes in leather goods. Today they’ve expanded their reach to dozens of locations across Europe, Asia & North America, including two locations in Toronto on Bayview and in Yorkville.
At M0851, there is something for everyone, of every style. They carry classic shapes in leather & outerwear for men and women. Aside from a special washed leather that is produced in India, all of their goods are hand made in Montreal and boast quality and longevity. All jackets fall under $1000 and their materials are evolving; meaning that their fabrics get softer & change colours, customizing the jacket to your wear and body. One of my favourite styles in shop was a waxed cotton parka with a fur trim, an amazing alternative to the parkas you constantly see around Toronto in the winter time. Another favourite was a rubberized cotton trench jacket with an amazing fit and is perfect for the Fall weather. Head to the store to check out both styles and if it’s not outwear you’re looking for, M0851 also has a huge selection of leather bags and accessories such as wallets, card holders and scarves.
