This week, we're pleased to present a special collaboration pack of White's and Freemans Sporting Club goods to announce these considered brand additions to our rock-star roster. In a palette-themed collection of workwear-inspired classics, we took these makers' iconic patterns and adapted them via Division Road design principles. The result is a timeless selection fit for the fall and beyond; each one of these style staples will elevate a wardrobe and collector cred for years to come. From the beyond century-old Spokane logging boot maker to the New York street and culture-creating suiting studio, these niche heritage brands have remained mainstays regardless of trend and cycles by preserving and respecting their core ethos and quality.
White’s Boots has been producing some of the finest logging and outdoor boots in the same way since 1915, with techniques that date back to the mid 1800's. Their patently preserved hand-sewn, welted and stitchdown construction uses all-leather components through the build in order to effectively mold to the foot, in a boot made for the harshest conditions and uses. We developed several aesthetic evolutions of these Chromexcel 350 Logger Boots that have exclusive-to-Division Road details throughout. Using the popular, attractive, and accommodating Arch-Ease 55 Last and 6” heights, we produced two styles for the warm wanderer or cool collector in all of us. With our Division Road approach to refinements of this iconic piece, see why this legacy logging boot maker has endured by keeping the craft alive with traditional trademarked techniques one lifetime boot at a time.
Freemans Sporting Club has remained a key figure in American-made goods with a contemporary approach to classic styles since the revival of heritage goods in the United States over a decade ago. With a focus on using specialty and limited run fabrics and producing goods in storied factories through Manhattan in updated originals that will never go out of style, FSC should be known to any studied enthusiast. This collaborative collection is based on the iconic Freemans pieces for which the brand is known to produce: timeless wardrobe style staples that honor craftsmanship with a modern approach. In a versatile and interchangeable color scheme, we bring you the signature CS-1 Shirt, Camp Overshirt, and Chore Jacket in hard-to-find Japanese and American fabrics that speak to an endurance of style and purposeful longevity. Check out these FSC x DR craft collectables that share a cohesive design formula and infuse the culture of the city into the classics.
