Barbour x White Mountaineering Is Online





two minor notes:

1.) we're also carrying the mountain parka in bark (a light brown with the yellow version of the wave print as a liner). It was recieved after our photographer grabbed the rest of the drop. hit me up for photos if you want to see it.

2.) sizing varies piece to piece; you guys are pretty savvy on styleforum but I want to make sure everyone knows not to be afraid to ask me about sizing details - the jackets were tagged per their hang tag. the shirts had "USA" and "UK" sizing that we marked per USA sizing. this means the jackets fit pretty slim, and the shirts are fairly true to size. we're always happy to do an exchange for our customers but we have limited stock so we'd love to nail it on the first go smile.gif

No other jersey shirts just yet. I'll be building a whole intro to seawall on an "official" thread in the not too distant future. we should be rolling out a few easy colors for the end of spring, just in time for memorial day BBQs. we've got a few colors in mind, but while I've got you here what are you thinking? I figure one should at least match up to any other insane Barena topcoats you've got kicking around wink.gif.

So you've noticed the Seawall showing up in a few fit photos? Geez higher rise trousers cause a lot of trouble...

I really like that green you've got on your site already, though not in my size. Maybe some other bold colors like that? I suppose paler colors could be useful too... Heck I don't know... you guys are the professionals. smile.gif

Hi Guys,

We've just recently restocked all of our core product from Reigning Champ (and added sweatpants and sweat shorts) - if we were out of your size in midweight terry anything, we should have it now.

check it out online here

Battenwear SS15 Is Online



These guys have been around for a few seasons now (this is our second round with them) but for those who aren't familliar, Battenwear comes from design sensibility from the vintage hike/surf world everyone's pretty familliar with at this point. normally we'd be wary of hyper referential clothes but Battenwear's level of quality and attention to detail in design is really top notch. The sensibilities are right in line with engineered garments - every so often we see fabrics we recognized from EG in the trimmings. Daiki worked with Shinya (Battenwear's head designer) during his stint at Woolrich Woolen Mills and we think the brand has huge crossover appeal, but it stands very well on its own too.

plus that traffic jam shirt is too perfect

Baldwin & Wings + Horns Online



Our first Wings + Horns delivery comes with some core - we restocked on the cotton cashmere bias tees that entered the core program in fall - as well as the 1x1 rib long sleeve henleys - and added some short sleeve base henleys for the cooler weather. The Mac Coat is a new spring piece that's pretty irresistable to the staff. Wings + Horns hired a designer with history at arc teryx, so articulation has played a part in some of their most recent designs. The Mac fits dead on. it's one of those "oh shit" pieces - the kind of thing that makes you forget what you were saying when you try it on.




the Baldwin delivery is primarily womens, and all jersey. 50/50 cotton modal fabric means a shrink resistant ultra comfy knit with a nice draping effect. we picked up men's pocket tees, plain and simple (though there are some graphics that aren't online that are kind of fun if you're a basketball fan)

Any chance you'll be stocking more of the navy 6.5oz flat twill Bedfords? Or are those gone?

sorry to say our EG stock comes and goes early - chances are we won't be able to restock anything from the line.

I believe we have one or two left, as well as a couple of the ripstop in olive. also check out the flat twill coverall - its our best pickup of the year IMO but we still have most sizes.

Cross-Post Update from the Rancourt Thread

Rancourt for PDG SS2015 - Flint Kudu




We really liked Rancourt's kudu offering for summer - it's fun to see accesible exotics thrown into the mix with traditional style shoes. We knew we wanted to make something from the Kudu for summer - Rancourt covered the bases pretty well on their own, but we noticed that many of their makeups were lined shoes. An unlined Kudu slip on seemed like the perfect summer shoe - the leather is soft and structureless, but just strong enough to be made unlined (unlike Repello suede which necessitates a liner on any makeup). so we did two slip on shoes - our usual loafer and a new camp mocc style, both with reltex soles. I wasn't 100% sure of my choice to put an Aspen sole on the camp mocc but now that it's here I think it's the best looking shoe we've put together for ready to order at PDG. here's a shot in some overcast natural light to better see the texture.




If I can answer any questions on these, I'd love to be of help. you can find both the Loafer & the Camp Moccasin on our website now.

We've also got our first Women's ready to wear reltex loafer cut in tan bulldog. we did a welt line mainly to differentiate it with the men's loafers for stock purposes, but we like the detail. Tan Bulldog is very cool - it's antiqued just like calfskin, so it has this semi-dress look to it. women's is a whole new world for us, but we think this is an easy way to bridge the gap.

some extra info on our first big project of 2015

Rancourt for Portland Dry Goods SS15 Kudu


Chandler's Camp Moc



Longfellow Loafer


Kudu Suede: The leather used for these shoes comes from an African Antelope, hunted for population control and as a common food source. The leather is very strong despite being quite unstructured, allowing for leather goods that are durable without being rigid and uncomfortable. Despite the unstructured nature of this leather, we chose to craft our shoes unlined for maximum breathability in the summer – the kudu drapes nicely in an unlined shoe and feels soft to the touch – much like american deerskin or a fine grain suede. Unlike the popular Horween chromexcel (one of our go-to leathers), kudu is resistant to stretching and will keep it's shape.

Reltex Soles: Rancourt utilizes a unique alternative to crepe soles with their Lactae Havea line from Reltex. These soles are made from the milk of the tropical Havea tree, harvested in a similar fashion to the way New England farmers harvest maple sap. The Havea milk is poured by hand into a mould to produce the soles – it takes the milk of nearly 20 trees to produce just 1 pair. The end result is a spongey latex-like sole that is more comfortable and more durable than your standard crepe. Our loafer uses the standard Reltex Malaise to maintain a casual-dress profile, while our camp moccasin is built on a Reltex Aspen wedge sole, which offers some extra traction in addition to comfort and support. Reltex Soles are great for trails and sidewalks - some even hold their own in snow and ice.

I picked up the Chandler's Moc and it is a fantastic makeup. The unlined kudu suede is soft and floppy and immediately comfortable, like a pair of slippers. Can't say enough good about it. Hopefully Rancourt will make other colors available. Anyone who wants a floppy pair of suede loafers, this is the stuff.

And the RLH sole, if you haven't experienced this yet, you don't know what you are missing. Traction and comfort.

These mocs are so lightweight, soft and comfortable, I hardly even know they are on my feet. Which they are right now.

Great job PDG!
