With RW&CO.'s new performance-driven suits, highlighted by the 40hr suit, the partnership is a natural fit for Erik Karlsson and others on-the-go. Also in the collection are The Traveler Suit and The Essential Suit. The Traveler Suit is designed for comfort and practicality (check out the passport and earbud pockets), while The Essential Suit is a must-have suiting foundation, perfect for many occasions. The multifunctioning and transitional pieces provide men with an effortless and sophisticated look from work to play.

"I am honoured to join the RW&CO. family," says Erik Karlsson, captain of Ottawa Senators. "In my wardrobe, I gravitate towards classic pieces that can be worn for years and when I'm in a suit, comfort is key. I dress according to how I feel and RW&CO. makes it easy to feel confident yet relaxed, especially when dressing up for game day."

Inspired by the 1960s mod movement, RW&CO.'s Fall 2018 collection will be sleek and tailored with clean lines and simple shapes. Throughout the collection, customers will find rich and vibrant colours to soft, dusty pastels, deep blues and neutral camel tones. Must-have items include a multi-floral shirt underneath a black cherry suit, a white jacquard shirt underneath a navy checked suit and a camel coat over a light grey window pane suit.

"The power of a suit is different for every man and Erik brings poised confidence and timeless style as our new ambassador," says Lora Tisi, President of RW&CO. "His dedication to commitment, hard work and ambition aligns seamlessly with the new direction of our suiting collection. From aspiring athletes to seasoned players, we hope our clients will appreciate the ease and versatility of the collection this Fall."

The Fall 2018 suiting collection will range in price between $348 and $448. Blazers are available from sizes 34 to 48 and come in short, regular and tall lengths.
