Old-school to the core, it's our Heavyweight T-shirt now in long sleeve version. The perfect vintage all-around garment. Navy, Vintage Red, Black. It's a true American icon that will transport you back in all the right ways. Big weight, vintage feel, modern fit. Best of all, it's made in the USA from material to sewing and offered at value you won't find anywhere else. 

If you've ever stumbled on a thrift store with great vintage t-shirts, you'll notice they tend to have a different feel than a lot of what you see in the t-shirt world today. The weight and the hand have a certain toughness and honesty that sometimes gets lost in more modern examples. As raw denim fans, we've never shied away from the challenge of developing fabric over time. Of earning that softness. This is what drove us to make our new Heavy T-shirt. We wanted to capture the spirit of the tougher t-shirts of earlier days. We think we've done it.

Fabric is the star. We use a burly 18 singles cotton. It's old school. Extra heavy and dense, you feel the substance this t-shirt has the second you touch it. The hand feel is also very different. It starts off with a touch of coarseness. You have to earn your comfort like raw denim, but over time it develops into that wonderful blend of weight and suppleness. When you get to that point, just be sure nobody tries to snag it from you because it's a special thing. We switched up the collar construction to a binding style that's set over the body to give it a bit more heft. Cuffs get a thick rib finish. This is a t-shirt to take pride in.

Three words: stretch, wool, corduroy. You don't often hear them spoken together, but the results is superb. A timeless weave, a touch of old-school ingredients and modern twist to creates a true classic with absolutely amazing wearability -- these are the Wool Stretch Corduroy Chinos.

We're big fans of classic garments with hidden details. On the surface they present as iconic styles, but once you put them on they become something much more. This fabric gave us an opportunity to present you a style we've never encountered before. These start with a the perfectly sized wale corduroy weave. Not too thin, not thick. The vertical channel lends great texture and a true old school look. while their fineness keeps the classic corduroy weave a bit more subtle. The color palette is absolutely timeless, from titanium to navy to olive drab. Things then get much more interesting. These have stretch. The moment you put them on you feel it and you like it. The extra give makes them a true pleasure to wear. Walking, sitting, moving, everything feels better. You just might never take them off. Then you get wool. Not so much as to make them itchy, but just enough so you know you're wearing something different and special. There is just so much to love in these chinos.

Olive Drab
With almost equal parts silk and cotton, a flowing open weave and a textured neppy surface, this is truly a special shirt.

Rugged and refined. That combination is hard to manage, but when we find a fabric that does it well, we know we're in for a special garment. This style starts with a rare composition, almost equal parts cotton and silk. These two components are joined in an open, loose weave. The resulting feel is unusual. There is a flowing and soft drape, while the six ounce weight helps give it just the right amount of body. A rustic touch comes in the form of small tufty neps dotting the surface of the fabric. It's as if you've owned and worn the shirt well for year. The colors are classic, from olive to navy to black. This is the type of unique shirting Japan has dialed in so well.

Something old and deadstock becomes something totally new. We stumbled on a small cache of ultra-rare selvedge from the famous Cone Mills White Oak Plant. We've never run it before and likely will never again. This is the type of classic raw denim that got us started in this craft and continues to be a centerpiece of our selvedge collections. Crispy, dark indigo, 12 ounces, crisp white weft, thin red ticker ID. The last of an American breed, treated to the highest quality American construction, offered at the value we're dedicated to providing you. The Cone Redline limited run.

Our CPO jackets are back with one of the coolest wools we've found to the gold standard classics. This iconic Navy staple is sure to be a favorite as temperatures start to dip.

Acid Rainbow Nep Wool
Hands down one of the most beautifully unusual wools we've found. The base is a cross between a bright mustard and jet black, creating a rich and earthy muted acid yellow color. It's completely fresh and unlike anything we've seen before. The black creates a subtle shadow effect to contrast the brighter yellow. Step up close and you get a rare surprise - a huge tapestry of colored rainbow neps dotting the surface in green, red and blue. Each garment is unique. The midweight 10 ounce wool base serves as the perfect sweetspot to make this garment usable as a layering piece or standalone jacket.

Navy Melton Wool
The ultimate classic rendered in 100% melton wool. This bright navy color is the iconic choice and the 100% melton is supremely smooth and comfortable to wear. The 10 ounce weight is ideal. The purists choice perfected.

Black Wool
A classic with a slightly more rugged feel. A slightly heavier 12 ounce weight with a more raw texture gives this jet black version a tougher look and feel. If you want a classic look with a tough feel this is your ideal choice.
This is truly the ultimate fabric combination - impossibly rugged and velvety soft. This is the moleskin we've been searching for and it's the perfect companion for our military inspired Field Jackets. The value simply makes these irresistible.
