Introducing Thread Theory Menswear Patterns


This is quite clearly going to be 'The Year of the Man' as we welcome another menswear pattern house onto the virtual shelves at Backstitch (The first was Walden).

Thread Theory is a new Canadian pattern house led by Morgan and Matthew Meredith, an oh-so-cute couple from Vancouver Island. Morgan does the designing and Matthew is the self proclaimed nerd in charge of the IT and photography side of things.


Their first collection, named the Parkland Collection, consists of four patterns.  Three of which are in print now: the Newcastle Cardigan; the Strathcona Henley; and the Jedediah Pants.  The fourth, the Goldstream Peacoat is coming soon.

The Newcastle cardigan is a cosy knit cardigan with a shawl collar and customisable shoulder and back yoke.  The Strathcona Henley and T-Shirt is a great basic: Make up with long or short sleeves and with either a crew-neck or a 1" henley placket (that's the buttony bit!).  You can even make it in a heavier knit as a sweater.  Lastly, the Jedediah Pants and Shorts are a chino style slim trouser which can be made either in a heavy fabric such as denim or twill, or made in a light summer fabric such as linen.

imgp3633Aside from these patterns being stylish and accessible to beginners, it's also worth mentioning that the packaging is lush!  Morgan and Matthew have really taken care to produce a beautiful and tactile product.

    Oh I need to get onto men patterns. I have not made anything for my husband, this year is the year.

    Thank you for showing these! I shared them on google plus as I think it is hard to find modern looking clothes to sew for men. They look great!
    We just need a link to a good fabric shop now- I don't think my floral fabrics would be suitable.
