Commonwealth Manufacturing = The Perfect Shirt.
Have you ever wondered if the perfect shirt exists? Well, we got you. Please do yourself a favor and go check out Commonwealth Mfg. Located in downtown Winnipeg at 290 McDermot Avenue, on the 4th floor. Take a walk through their work space and see exactly where the shirts are made and go ahead and try one on for size.
The detailed craftsmanship and precision put into these shirts are what makes them timeless. Invest in one of these and it’ll be with you for many memories. Not to mention the fact that you’ll look great.
This company is less focused on branding and pushing their product, but rather focused on creating the best possible product, selling itself. Each shirt is designed to be simple, classic and enduring, so you don’t have to worry about it going out of style.
Another cool thing about them is they recently announced a ‘Take-Back Program’. They will now be accepting any unwanted Commonwealth shirts, regardless of their condition in exchange for 15% off your next CMFG shirt. They will also fix these shirts up to offer them in a pre-owned shirt collection at reduced prices.
