This week, as a follow-up to our residency with two of our prized Northwest makers who are included in this cabal of craft, we have a story about the rare and faithful heritage goods that our enthusiasts and collectors ceaselessly hunt. With limited run collaborations from White’s and Dehen paired to the wardrobe foundations from Gitman and Iron Heart, we have another collection of highly desirable goods driven by a fresh fall palette, striking materials, and timeless designs with tailored fits to offer all the function and style we strive for in assembling our personal armories. As the weather cools and the leaves change, take an adventure with your wardrobe by pursuing goods made with quality, passion, and distinctiveness.
One of our most sought-after collaborations is the high Semi-Dress 375, an exclusive development where we took the 5” standard pattern to new heights as a commanding 7” boot. This update on the style’s original purpose of situational flexibility leverages a clean and classic design to serve you well in the workshop or the office, on the jobsite, or a night out on the town. A full restock comes back for the Black Waxed Flesh 375, which is accompanied by a new Brown Waxed Flesh version sharing all the tonal material configurations and specifications from our celebrated make-up of brass eyelets, fully gusseted CXL tongue, Natural CXL welt and midsole, block-logger heel, and the composition split sole to carry you from the woods to the streets in handmade craft. The Waxed Flesh Semi-Dress is a unification of function and style in another rare, indispensable pair of White’s configured with the DR perspective.
Our skillful material sourcing should be no mystery to our core-audience as we constantly push the boundaries by discovering premium, unknown, yet completely relevant fabrics and leathers for heritage goods. One of our core endeavors is to advance the niche by creating the top tier of timeless garments, and in that quest, we often use Harris Tweed and Fox Brothers as the premium examples of UK mills producing rustic and refined cloths engineered for the outdoors that make the excellent, exceptional. This season, we’ve taken some of our favorite deadstock tweeds from past sourcing expeditions and restocked the acclaimed Fox Rosewood Herringbone Winston Jacket, recreated the Flyer’s Club Bomber in the Harris Ridgeline Blue Check, and introduce a new Utility Vest in the Wilsham Guncheck, along with a full offering of our venerable Division Road Shawl Cardigan collaboration in Black and Bark Brown for the mainstay of a heritage wardrobe.
Oh yes, it’s Ultra Heavy Flannel and Work Shirt season from Iron Heart and with our curatorial eye, you can expect a precise presentation of the finest hard duty shirting on the planet. This drop of the 339-SAX is a perfect example of elevating a classic outdoor-inspired blanket check pattern with a burnt brown, off-white, and Saxon Blue palette and leveling up with a 12 oz. weight, utilizing a rare Aspero cotton fiber and proprietary yarn development that yields a flexible and durable fabric that’s enhanced with a single brushed exterior and double brushed interior for immense comfort, along with all the Iron Heart improvements on old-world construction details throughout like chainstitched flat felled seams. In addition, we bring you the new 329-BRN Work Shirt coming in a sturdy and static 7 oz. burnt brown Chino Twill that will be a great daily duty piece to any collector or inductee as an all-season, modern-meets-vintage ensemble complement.
A renowned all-star player in reimagining the button down, Gitman Vintage utilizes decades of archive fabrics to recreate specialty cloths each season in new fabrications and palettes for a modern shirt with versatile work-to-play purposes. This batch of brilliantly updated button downs brings us the bell of the seasonal ball, Alexander Girard Brocade, in Sepia and Silver that’s been re-engineered from an original mid-century textile blueprint produced for Herman Miller with the precise tones, dimensions, and texture in this beautiful Arabesque woven jacquard. For specialty staples, we have two Japanese loomed denims for the essential base layer to complement ensembles that range from the classic to experimental. The indigo dyed Hickory Stripe Denim is inspired by railroad uniforms and is accompanied by the Light Washed Denim to channel your inner When Harry Met Sally or The Graduate style icon.
