The great fit and construction are among its major strong points, but we have to mention that the sweater is so comfortable that its hard to take off. The fabric being made in America means more consistency and (in general) higher quality than a lot of foreign made fabrics. Overall we're really happy with both the sweater and the sweatpant.Quote:In production now, probably 4-6 weeks out.
New from The Hill-Side, we've picked up Blue Owl's first shoes, and they really fit in here at the workshop! The first is a hemp/cotton blend that is woven into a 9.5oz indigo dyed denim. Second is a very light 5oz indigo chambray. Both fabrics were woven in Japan and washed once to achieve a super soft and comfortable feel. In a classic low top style, these sneakers will be the perfect summer beater to satisfy your need for fades! The sneakers are made by hand in Japan, and are the best constructed shoe we've ever seen in this style.
The Hill-Side Hemp Denim Low Top Sneaker. 55% hemp, 45% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 8-12. $175. For more information, click here.
The Hill-Side Indigo Chambray Low Top Sneaker. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 8-12. $175. For more information, click here.
The shoe has a very slim and low silhouette which will pair great with chinos or shorts.
6 brass eyelets and one pair of sturdy laces. The rubber reinforcement at the toe and canvas backed foxing make for a sturdy shoe.
The inside of the shoe is custom printed with Hill-Side's logo, and is comfortable from the first wear. These shoes are so soft they feel like slippers.
Gum rubber outsole and vulcanized construction offer great grip.
The heel also has rubber reinforcement in between the fabric, and a custom molded Hill-Side heel plate adorns the back.

Momotaro has brought us another great collection this season with three new fabrics! A lightweight 10oz Indigo/Indigo, a vibrant 13oz Cobalt Blue Weft, and a hefty 18oz'er are all amazing additions to Blue Owl. To top it all off, we have two brand new fits from Momotaro: Tight Tapered, and Natural Tapered. The Tight Tapered is a very modern and slim tapered fit, the first from Momotaro. Natural Tapered is a great fit for bigger guys, with a roomy top block and a decent taper through the leg.
This is a cut I've been hoping to see from Momotaro (or almost anyone really--there's really only a couple available) for a while. Do you have any plans to bring it in in other denims? 18oz is pretty heavy, and not really something I'm interested in, but I would love to see it one of the new indigo/indigo, cobalt weft, or even the "basic" 14.7/15.7 oz fabrics.post #2362 of 25814/1/14 at 10:19amQuote:Originally Posted by oboy_oboy

We currently offer the same fit in the chino. We will be expanding the natural taper when more fabrics become available. It is new and not a lot offered yet, but be patient.post #2363 of 25814/1/14 at 10:21ampost #2364 of 25814/4/14 at 10:07am

Indigo discharge prints are achieved by dying an entire fabric in indigo, then spraying a bleaching agent on the finished product to create a pattern. The pin dot tie is a classic look that can be used as a year-round piece.

The Windowpane pattern is a classic, timeless look that is great in both casual and formal situations. The indigo and yellow contrast is why we were attracted to this fabric.

The fabric on this pocket square is so unique and soft you would think you're touching the highest quality linen. This is one of our favorite pieces from this season because of its beautiful pattern and amazing fabric.post #2365 of 25814/8/14 at 9:22am

Blue Owl has long recommended Railcar Fine Goods for denim repairs because of the high quality work they do, and today we are happy to announce that we will begin carrying their denim in the Workshop! Founded in 2010, Railcar is a small private business based out of Los Angeles neighborhood Arcadia, California.
The founder, Steven Dang, is a raw denim expert today, but had his humble beginnings as a full time mechanic at the LA Metro. Before denim Dang's pastimes included building and repairing classic cars and motorcycles. Railcar began as another creative output for that meticulous craftsmanship, starting with just one simple sewing machine. Steven takes his mechanical expertise to his denim, often saying that he "builds" clothing, as opposed to creating it. To Steven every stitch and angle has a function, and with that function comes the beauty of fine garments.
His start at the Metro is the namesake for his brand: in the mornings Steven gets up early to work on his Railcar denim, and in the evenings he works long hours on his rail cars downtown. What makes Railcar Fine Goods truly unique is that every step of production is done in-house, in the same small 1000 sq. ft. shop, from cutting the denim to sewing the tags. Steven places immense value on tradition, craftsmanship, and quality, using only the best materials, and a collection of well maintained vintage machines. He takes pride in the fact that Railcar doesn't subcontract any part of the process: they are the builders every step of the way.
Steven is like any other raw denim enthusiast: he loves a nice pair of jeans that he can abuse, but only looks better as it gets worn. He builds his jeans to have strength but also style. Railcar uses great details like hidden pocket rivets, triple needle chain stitch on major seams, belt loops sewn into the waistband, and a unique two piece waistband that prevents overstretching.
Besides excellent construction, Railcar has some excellent fits which is why we're not only bringing in their men's, but also their women's raw denim! For a while now we've been looking at bringing back a few fits for ladies who love their denim well-built and girlfriends who are curious about the raw experience, and there couldn't be a better place to start than with Railcar. Expect more for the future!
Blue Owl will be carrying the men's Spikes X012, and the women's Viper X001 and Donna X001. The denim is in production now, and should be here by the end of the month!post #2369 of 25814/12/14 at 11:03amThe Spring/Summer shipments continue to roll in! New from United Dry Stock Goods is their classic chore jacket, this time in a clean chambray fabric, perfect for Spring/Summer in any climate.
