Folks at Canterbury of New Zealand, also new at Berkshire Court, say they sell the “world’s toughest activewear.” For decades. New Zealand has been a leader in clothing for serious sports enthusiasts-especially for rugby players and determined yachtsmen. Continuing this legacy, Canterbury uses durable jersey (spun, knitted, dyed, and sewn in New Zealand) for rugby shirts, shorts, and trousers.
Attention was first focused on Canterbury during the 1983 America’s Cup when the victorious Aussies were seen wearing ankle-zipped yacht pants. Clothes are purposely unisex, and for spring and summer, styles come in colors from pastels to brights.
