This Saturday April 30th - Dish & DU/ER Denim Pop Up Shop at YNOT

April 21, 2016

Spring is here, the park is packed and the patios are even fuller!  It's the time of year we find ourselves in search of a fresh pair of jeans...  Looking for a pair that can keep up with your active lifestyle? THIS WEEKEND we are hosting a Dish & DU/ER Denim Pop Up Shop at our Store - 831 Queen St West, Toronto. 

What makes Dish & DU/ER Jeans Special?  Dish & DU/ER Jeans feature the latest in technical fabrics and are cut for comfort, style and movement.  Here's the full technical run down:


Leisure 2 Extreme (L2X™) denim is made from a specific blend of fibers created to maximize performance, while retaining the look and feel of true denim. Integrating COOLMAX performance fibers into the denim allows moisture to be wicked towards the surface of the pant  and away from the body. These hollow fibres also act as an insulator to keep the wearer warmer when it is cold. It is 30% lighter and stronger than traditional denim fabric, and offers advanced stretch technology for maximum performance. The addition of Silvadur™ silver ions naturally repels bacteria keeping your pants fresh.


Our invisible seat gusset, helps enhance the amount of maneuverability where you need it most. It is made from L2X fabric, and can withstand an increased amount of stress in the crotch area. It’s capabilities prevents crotch blow-outs, provides extra mobility during extreme motion, and added comfort and strength.


Built with reinforced stitching, our DU/ER denim is triple stitched at stress points to ensure our pants outperform all.


Our front and back pockets are double layered at the bottom seams to prevent any possible ripping.   

Dish & DU/ER have quickly become a staff favourte at YNOT! 

Have a great week and see you Saturday to help you find the perfect pair of jeans ready for the adventures the warmer weather will bring!

Fast Track - The Mammoth A Pro Series Messenger Backpack!

March 24, 2016

Our Long time friend Andrew Rommashyna recently collaberated with us on a new Oversized Backpack built for Messenger work!  The result was the Mammoth - A Pro Series Backpack that can fit a full sized bankers box, and is over 75L capacity (over 4400 cubic inches!) 25"H x 12"D x 16"W.  This huge, hairy, scary, beast is built to last and hold any load you can throw at it!  It has a truck tarp floating liner and oversized pockets.  Looking for your next work bag?  Contact us at info@ynotmade.com to order your own Mammoth.  This bag will only be avalible built to order - email us for custom pricing!  This bag is lazer cut and changes to dimentions are avaliable!
Andrew recently set out on his own to launch a pre-scheduled messeneger sevice in Toronto!  We are excited about what he's building and want to spred the word about his new venture!  Here's what Andrew had to say about the Mammoth:
"After almost 8 years working as a messenger for different courier companies here in Toronto I decided it was time for a change. I loved working as a messenger but wanted to be more involved and see bigger rewards. So I recently started my own pre-scheduled messenger service. Fast Track Messenger. The company caters to retail shops that have a lot of local on-line customers. More and more people are shopping on-line and by offering a service where the customer can choose their delivery day it makes it easier and more stream lined for them to get their goods right to their door. 
The one big thing I was missing to get things rolling was a messenger bag large enough to carry retail goods from multiple stores. So I went where I've always gone when needing a new bag. To Tony and the YNOT team. Tony was stoked to hear I was in need of a new oversized backpack bag (he was just starting to design one) I met him at the studio and we went over details that the bag should have, we talked about size, pockets, straps and he told me he'd even be able to print my company logo on it. Tony really listened to my input and with his years of experience sewing and designing bags the end result was an amazing new bag! It's light for how oversized it is and fits comfortably even when you've got it loaded up. I've been using it for two weeks straight now and don't know how I ever got by without it! Big thanks to YNOT and two thumbs up for the new Mammoth Pro Series Messenger Backpack!"

  • Seatbelt shoulder straps - Automotive Grade
  • Hidden Snap Hook - to hang the bag for storage or to keep your keys safe
  • Dimensions - 16" x 4" x 10"
  • Volume - 11 liters
