Weekly Edition: 133 The Crater Collection

The Crater Shirt is a heavyweight brushed Portuguese flannel that was inspired by vintage Northwest outdoor wear. It is the type of shirt that used to be offered in simple newsprint catalogs thumbed through by hunters, hikers and true outdoorsmen. A classic navy and red check to keep you warm, to keep you visible and to keep you presentable enough to walk into the town tavern without being looked at like Sasquatch. That said, we updated the classic boxy outdoor fit so the shirt fits much more like a tailored jacket. It is perfect over a white oxford, and completely capable of accompanying you to those fancy city places that don’t decorate with taxidermy   Our take on this classic flannel includes two acorn patch pockets, one being button through as well as custom navy cat’s eye buttons.

Along with the Crater Shirt, we are releasing a special pair of 10 oz navy moleskin Crater trousers. Traditionally an English Hunting staple, we trimmed the cut but kept the unmatched warmth. As if Moleskin pants were not comfortable enough, we used  the brushed flannel from our Crater shirt for pocketing. Whether you are shoveling out your car or opting to take the brisk stroll to work these are the pants to keep you looking proper all winter long.
