Matty Matheson Steps Out of the Kitchen to Start His Own Workwear Brand

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, odds are you’ve watched (or had a friend tell you to watch) The Bear. And while the fast-paced, kitchen-based dramedy doesn’t revolve around real-life chef Matty Matheson, his co-production credits go to show that he knows his way around a restaurant — and a TV. Now, the Canadian native is dipping his toes into the fashion world with Rosa Rugosa, his new workwear brand.

The label began its formation five years ago when Matheson and designer Ray Natale noted the lack of a Canadian workwear brand — á la what Carhartt and Dickies are to the states. Years later, the partnership blossomed into a Toronto-based factory crafting high-quality blue-collar essentials. In the meantime, the brand is offering a quartet of wardrobe staples. Starting with the Gwynne Long Sleeve Shirt, which is composed of either 8.5-ounce twill cotton or 10-ounce hickory cotton (depending on the color).

Moreover, the same applies to the Dunn Short Sleeve Shirt, as each top even features a pair of chest pockets for a traditional look. As far as colors are concerned, some of the most eye-catching shades include Hickory Stripe, Dusty Rose, and Kelly Green. Moving on to bottoms — the Dunn Shorts and Gwynne Pants — are all available in the same colors as the shirts and constructed using the same sturdy material. Lastly, there are a pair of hats to match the rest of the first drop, too.

Pieces from Rosa Rugosa are available on the brand’s website, ranging from $50-175.

Purchase: $50+
