Paper to Product: Edition 214

Behind everything we make there is craftsmanship and a strong consideration for fit. There is also choice of materials and color. Together, these are the four things we consider when reimagining a classic piece.

For the military oxford, three of these components remain unchanged. It remains our signature single needle French seam shirt sewn up in our heavy rugby oxford with just the right modern fit. What's different is the color: the perfect shade of army green for everyday wear. A shade that flatters light and dark complexions and pairs with every shade of blue, black or khaki. We opted away from the washed out green of vintage fatigues because a darker shade is more versatile and well suited for work.

The same goes for our chinos. Our two perfected fits, democratic and slim, are unchanged. The soft yet durable brushed twill that has everyone switching over to our pants, remains. We just added that shade of grey you were looking for. After all, good things come in threes and this grey is the only color that could stand up to our olive and khaki in terms of versatility.

As we start shifting our design thinking towards fall, we wanted to add colors that are great this year and every year after because for us, that's what it's all about.
