Collaborations and Releases with Viberg, Ginew, Gitman Vintage, Iron Heart, Studio D'Artisan, and National Athletic Goods
Autumn has arrived in pleasant fashion with its darker days, cooler air and changing leaves. In keeping with welcoming our favorite season, we have a full-scale release for a graduated heritage wardrobe boasting a color coordinated collage of craftsmanship relevant to this season and beyond. We often find ourselves looking backward to go forward, and these goods reflect a vintage character that only gets better with age: they’re sturdy, purposeful, and not afraid of hard work and adverse conditions.
The fact is, old world craftsmanship is disappearing in an automated world and amidst a chase to the bottom mentality around price and longevity. This is why we present our division of goods that hallmark a bygone era when products were made to last, by people who cared, out of the best possible materials, and with a timeless aesthetic. This week’s roster of venerable makers shows the hearty and special nature of our rare goods and how they’re distilled from the past for a full future of wear.
As we are footwear first, we have some of our most popular core exclusive Viberg collaborations coming in the form of the Natural CXL Roughout Service Boot, a.k.a. the ‘Boondockers on Broadway,’ with a leather produced for the trenches in an aesthetic made for the street. The Natural Dublin Service Boot, a.k.a. the ‘Patina Professor,’ comes in a classic dress casual aesthetic in our treasured, exclusive leather with all of its golden tan goodness to match the leaves it will saunter through.
Our standby shirting with Gitman once again proves why we’re proud provisioners and collectors with two amazing Japanese Country Plaid Flannels that have a baby soft hand paired to a tough-guy color scheme. Then, for four-season utility, we have our exclusive collection of Interwoven Check Twills in four archive patterns and a prized fabric development that result in a pattern with next level depth in a cloth with unmatched durability, representing this legacy shirting maker to the fullest with a better than vintage fabric.
From Ginew, we have our Rider Coat collaboration coming back in its Martexin Waxed glory, color coordinated with the exclusive ‘We Will Walk Together’ Pendleton blanket wool lining to embody Native Americana with a soulful riding heritage.
Iron Heart delivers two well-timed, limited, Ultra Heavy Flannels with refined yarns, production, and patterns in the complex Navy Crazy Check Work Shirt and the classy Red Small Block Check Western for all those cult collectors looking for the best workwear flannel with a sense of luxury in the business, period.
Then, we have what we believe to be indispensable basics for those vintage enthusiasts: our seasonal collection of National Athletic Goods comes in a rich olive and wine palette mixed with speckled neutrals, all made possible with specialty mock-twist yarn and weaving effected in Japan.
Finally, to the basis of our ensemble comes Studio D’Artisan denim with a modern interpretation of a WW1 jean for those looking for a throwback style with a tapered leg, along with the treasured G3 Series fabric in the new High Tapered SD-909 that’s sure to be loved from fit to fade.
