We've long been fans of what Freemans Sporting Club has been doing across the river from us in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. So when they mentioned they were about to open their Bench-made Bespoke Studio we decided it was high time to work with them.
We brought our 60/30 Cloth over to their studio one afternoon and voila, a collaboration was born. Our 60/30 Chinos are some of our favorite pants, so it was a no brainer to sketch up a blazer with Freemans. It's got the comfort and good looks of a cotton twill but with the added durability and movement of micro-nylon. Add a light DWR and you've got a beautiful fabric that you can play rough in.
FSC brought their bench-made tailoring to the table and hand-sewed it up right with custom buttons, front patch pockets, a notch collar lapel and their signature slim fit. The result is an unstructured sport coat that moves beautifully, can take a beating and looks damn good. A 21st century jacket that's made by hand in the Lower East Side; the way things used to be done.
