Collaborations and Releases with Freemans Sporting Club, Corridor NYC, Home Work, Shockoe Atelier, and U-Mask
This week, we bring you a collection of goods and collaborations that offer seasonless functionality in timeless aesthetics from Freemans Sporting Club, Corridor NYC, Home Work, Shockoe, and U-Mask with the past sensibilities, style, and backbone of Americana. While it’s certainly winter weather out there for most, our collective thoughts are towards the future, so this selection comes in a rich and versatile palette that highlights brighter days of spring while staying relevant for winter. We think this is the time of year to pick up those garments that offer crossover from one condition to the next, the authentic craftsmanship to endure for years beyond, and the timeless style to stay significant even within the most robust wardrobes.
Back from hiatus, Freemans Sporting Club is back producing at their NYC workshops and at it again with bold colors in vintage inspired fabrics that are infused into updated, modern classic garments. The original Overshirt comes in a crazy triple yarn loose weave plaid for killer looks and campfire nights, along with the utilitarian and stylin’ Chore Jacket, this time coming in a dutiful Cactus Duck Canvas that will age subtly to perfection. Finally, for year-around utility we present some exclusive-to-Division Road heavy weight and thin wale Japanese Corduroy CS-1 Shirts that have a lux feel but allow for hard work.
From our close collaborator in New York, Corridor brings us a signature palette of Black, Charcoal, Khaki, and Indigo in a union of staples that have a sly specialness for those looking for heritage made with a refined, city state of mind. We brought back some trusty collaborations in the overdyed and enzyme Washed Black M41 and Indigo Dyed Pindot button down that can handle action and will patina well, another conspired M41 Jacket in Coyote Herringbone Twill that hallmarks military with an evolved perspective, and the Boiled Alpaca Wool Blazer Cardigan that’s a well-crafted, cozy, and complex cool-style piece.
Coming with a traditional fiber to thread, American made method, Home Work’s completely vertical farm to factory production brings us a sustainably made trifecta of tops in brilliant blues that emphasize these distinctive fabrics produced with shuttle and hand-looming techniques persevered by small, specialty low volume mills. We have the Blanket Lined Work Jacket with a simplistic form and layered story for a modern workwear piece, the Marine Drill Twill Work Jacket as a hardened staple that comes garment dyed and washed for softness, and a Blanket Twill Overshirt with unmatched tonal texture and maximum comfort for a multipurpose stand-by shirt.
Keeping selvedge denim stateside, Shockoe partnered with the new Vidalia Mills that improved heritage while filling the gap left by White Oak by acquiring and retooling their Draper looms. Using only sustainably US grown organic e3 cotton, Vidalia Mills is producing some fantastic ultra-narrow fabrics with a special vintage character. Using their new medium tension 14 oz. Nash selvedge denim with an antique green-cast, Shockoe gives us two jeans that require no fuss to yield fantastic fades and will comfortably conform to a variety of body types with the solid Standard fit in a classily tapered straight leg, and the impeccably designed new Modern Slim.
For those in the know there is no need to explain, but for the uninitiated, look no further than our rare U-Mask presentation as you are in the hands of the provisioner to the particular for style goods and, apparently now, protective gear with the best and only reusable Biotech mask on the market that is antiproliferative and self-sanitizing. Keeping it fresh, we have a new DRA Admiral collaboration with a maritime inspiration along with our signature DRA Black mask that now comes with a bundled Model Two Mask + Replacement Filter option, along with a restock on a pair of collection U-Mask’s to arm our style soldiers with color coordination against infection and impurity for a healthier world.
