Bulletin: Collaborations and Releases with Ginew, Iron Heart, Benzak, Nine Lives, Studio D' Artisan, and Shockoe Atelier
This Black Friday, we know that you’re likely looking for a curated collection of craft rather than sifting through the dizzying deluge of discounts on disposable goods. So, for the folks who go the extra mile for quality, we’re bringing our minimalist mentality to your doorstep with artisan fabrics, refined fits, old world workmanship, and overall exceptional pieces from some of the best heritage producers around. Each piece in this week’s release of unarguably prodigious goods speaks to the skill of its maker. Hence, rally with our Black Friday cry of “Buy Craft, Not Crap” as you journey the Division Road for goods destined for your well-considered wardrobe.
Road, war, and ranch ready, this crafty collection of Iron Heart seasonal and staple Westerns and Work Shirts in Ultra Heavy Flannel and Selvedge Chambray, a Modified Type III Trucker in vintage cool Corduroy, and a better-than-original reproduction N1 Deck Jacket in an Indigo Whipcord with Alpaca Lining are made via the famous Iron Heart over-the-top and next-level production techniques designed for the motorcyclist, adventurer, and collector alike.
Inspired by your favorite cuts and coalesced into one, the 711 we developed with Benzak takes a vintage top block into a modern taper with an accommodative fit that has become beloved by many as their overbuilt, work-ready jean that sends any denim geek reeling. From our 16 oz. Heavy Slub version to the proprietary 14 oz. low tension Special 1 fabric, these jeans will evolve and endure as new classics with comfort, traditional styling, and tank-like reinforcements.
As a major hit last year and with great Native Americana pride, we've brought back the Ginew x Division Road Rider Coat in every color-coordinated Martexin® Original Waxed Army Duck Canvas imaginable. Combined with the exclusive “We Walk Together” Pendleton® Wool Blanket lining, inspired by oral traditions meant to guide future generations, this is a piece made to stand up with a stalwart soul.
Celebrating 40 years as one of the premier selvedge denim producers, Studio D'Artisan exemplifies a modern approach toward heritage goods. In a limited run hallmark edition that utilizes our favorite hand-operated G3 loom series fabric with some elemental extract-dyed wefts in Relaxed Tapered fits, this denim underscores the value of a nature-based approach to establishing aesthetic transformations that will astound the denim purist and progressive for years to come.
As a singular standout from Nine Lives, we bring you the legendary Sashiko Workshirt made in their exclusively engineered Natural Indigo dyed fabric with an ancient heritage. This functional and fashionably advanced piece comes in an elevated fit with shoulder gussets, reverse seam chest pockets, and custom hardware to wield yet another original design that blends heritage inspiration and an exceptional material for another collectable essential.
For yet another addition of premium Collect Mills Selvedge Duck Canvas pants, we present the collaboratively designed Field Trouser in an evolved fit iteration and enriched workwear palette. For those looking to explore in a relaxed and tapered cut with details and pocketing inspired by military and outdoorsman trousers, these are dutiful, hard-as-duck pieces made with a tailor’s approach to authentic heritage goods, certain to become your new favorite denim alternative staples.
