A few rolls of heavyweight wool were recently discovered in our manufacturer’s warehouse, leftover from a production run that was completed nearly three decades ago for a prominent outdoor goods brand. This naturally warmth-retaining, water-resistant and breathable fabric has been trusted for centuries, and we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to create something special with it. For FW19, we’re offering our Work Shirt silhouette in four color variations of 100% virgin Mackinaw wool. Raw copper YKK snaps reinforced by leather washers line the cuffs and placket, as well as a copper catseye top button—beautifully hand-forged by Phyre Forge. All seams are flat-felled, double-needle stitched and accented with chain stitch runoff detail on the sides. Stress points are braced with bar tacks, and a 10 oz waxed canvas lines the yoke and collar.
This new limited edition release for fall is a Pendleton wool lined version of our classic waxed canvas vest. The work vest features a tilted chest pocket for easy access and deep hand pockets that are sure to keep your belongings from falling out. Each raw copper rivet is backed with a leather washer to increase durability. We recommend sizing up if you plan to wear layers underneath. Only 55 made.
