429Life, a new menswear line based in New York City, has been receiving rave reviews throughout the US and Europe, and now makes it's Canadian debut at men's grooming emporium - Momentum.
Founded by Gregory Lawrance and Luis Fernandez the clothing caters to the confident, discerning, and active individual. The distinctively tailored fit of the company's flagship product - graphic tees - emphasize the masculine v- shape of the body, and enhances the wearer's physique.
The company's name is a sly reference to the digits on a telephone dial pad, which spell out gay. The line is aimed at men who comfortably reside in a realm between unassumingly gay, and modestly metrosexual. With discreet graphics like 429Boy, 429YouWish, or 429Absolutely the wearer can be either coy or forthcoming about their preference. These shirts are for everybody, for those so inclined there is a 'no graphic' option. Subtle is sexy.
Attention to detail, fit, comfort top priority:
As 429's flagship product, the graphic t-shirts are as comfortable as a warm hug. Fine attention to detail and the use of 100% PIMA cotton make these products a standout. Previously having little option in the way a t-shirt fits, men have until now had to choose between boxy, loose fitting t-shirts, or the painted on fit of fashion t-shirts. Once you slip on a 429 tee, you will have the unmistakable feeling that this garment was custom fitted just for you. The company has just completed their Spring/Summer 2006 collection which will offer a wider range of casual shirts, and other tops.
Extremely easy care, the shirt can be machine washed and dried coming out exactly as they went in. PIMA cotton provides unparalleled strength and color absorption assuring many years of comfortable wearing.
Momentum Advanced Grooming Solutions Inc. opened their flagship store - Momentum - on October 1st 2004. Momentum is Canada's first specialty retailer of premium skin care and grooming products for men. Offering men a unique alternative to traditional sources of these products, Momentum has grown to offer some 18 lines of menÂs grooming products. Adding a line of menswear was a natural progression says President, Graham Bingham. The company also plans to introduce a line of custom designed jewelry for men in time for the holiday season.
FOUR TWO NINE LIFE is the result of a shared vision and passionate discussion Â over a glass of wine Â about the frustration with extremist sexual stereotypes. This discussion Â between 429Â®'s founders Greg and Luis Â allowed them to recognize the difficulty in finding casual wear with which they could personally identify: nothing 'out there' fit great and delivered a subtle and witty message. Thus, 429Â® sprang-up as a line of everyday wear and accessories with superior fit, great looks, and a clever, modern message about sexual identity.
The company's name Â FOUR TWO NINE LIFE Â came from a popular underground cell phone colloquialism: the number '429' spells out the word 'gay' on a telephone touch pad. '429' has become a discreet way of identifying one's sexuality.
