When browsing the Jed North online store, it can be a little bit intimidating. Some of the guys showcasing the sporting clothing have biceps twice as big as my thigh. But their tank tops, t-shirts, polos, and joggers are as perfect for the big-gun-gym-going guys as they are for the rest of us.
I am just a regular dude who likes to do my morning jog or my afternoon mountain bike run. Shorts, T-Shirts, and joggers were what I needed and I was not disappointed. As soon as you try them on, you feel the quality. They are lightweight with amazing fabric. I can bike all day, sweating in the mid-afternoon sun, and still feel comfortable.
The prices are very reasonable too. A short sleeve breathable nylon t-shirt will only set you back 23$. And that’s Canadian dollars, so my American friends will get the equivalent of 25-30% off the listed price while paying with Uncle Sam’s money.
Jed North is indeed a proud Canadian company and you will see the occasional “Toronto” or other Canadian wording on shirts or tank-top here and there.
For the ladies, an interesting selection of training bras, yoga pants, crop tops, and other female-oriented clothing is available as well. I can’t comment on those because… well… I did not try them on because they may look very weird on me.
Based in Quebec and photographer for more than 15 years, I specialize in press photography (photojournalism) and corporate and event photography.
A 2006 graduate of the prestigious photojournalism program at Loyalist College in Belleville (Ontario, Canada), I first distinguished myself by being the first runner up student of the Association of Press Photographers of Eastern Canada (Eastern Canadian News photographers Association) for the quality of my portfolio.
Back in Quebec City after an internship at the Ottawa Citizen and the Edmonton Sun, and a contract at the Windsor Star, I quickly developed a large clientele including some of the most prestigious Canadian newspapers.
In 2018, I published two books: The hidden face of photography and En photo et en Affaires
