TWYFORD IS A TORONTO BASED LIFESTYLE CLOTHING BRAND that specializes in premium comfort wear. The company’s founder, Matthew Davies created the line in 2013 with a vision to design comfortable yet sophisticated garments offering versatility beyond traditional ‘sweats’.
The concept was inspired during his university studies in engineering. Davies found himself constantly resorting to his signature uniform – consisting of sweatpants and hoodies – all of which offered him no sense of structure or design and a look that garnered him defeat. After graduating, he pursued his vision and began studies at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, later leading him to internships with Toronto designers Greta Constantine and Smythe. His most recent internship was completed in New York with Robert Geller, winner of the CFDA/Vogue Award for Best New Menswear Designer.
