Paper to Product: Edition 233

When it comes to personal style, you must first master the basics. Once you have those, you likely find your interest piqued by pieces that are a little more quirky. These pieces feel familiar yet refreshingly different in a way that ties the tongue. They let you make a statement without having to declare “I’m a shiny disco ball, look at me!” You can let a custom selvage detail, unique button placket, or vintage pattern speak confidently for itself.

This week we are happy to offer two pieces that are just the right amount of different. The first redefines our outdoor-oriented Camp Pant. We wanted a twill pant that was mobile, rugged, and tailored. We took some fit cues from our Good Acre Chore Pant, but removed the double knee in order to lighten the weight and simplify the lines. For fabric, we selected a limited lot of 10 ounce Kuroki Mills selvage olive twill. It features a handsome white selvage ticker and a faded shade of olive drab that is reminiscent of vintage army fatigues.

The second piece for this week’s release, the Popover in Indigo Stripe, is an outside fastball for those who love shirting that just clips the traditional strike zone. Inspired by wool suiting patterns but woven on narrow looms with supple indigo and natural yarns, this once conservative pattern is executed in a context that is anything but stuffy. Pair it with khaki or olive chinos and rest easy knowing that even when you’re looking relaxed, you’re still at the top of your style game.
