The collection includes t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hoods, underwear and Stanfield’s long underwear for men and women. It is sold through the East Coast Lifestyle website and retail locations (two in Halifax and one in Cavendish, PEI) and eventually in Pseudio stores throughout Atlantic Canada.

“We have had some cooperation partner relationships in the past. I think the unique thing about this relationship is working with a brand that is based here in Nova Scotia and has the reach of East Coast Lifestyle, ”Newcombe said, adding that the collaboration came about naturally and relatively quickly .
