And the Archive Sale is live.

Everything is too cheap and/or too expensive! Or something.

Shirts advertised at 3 for $275 which is a steal, but discount was not applied in cart. Refreshed the page a few times and now the "3 for $275" notice is missing. Booooooooooooo.

Re: Camel Coat and Shorts photo

To be fair, stuff like that is meant to be taken conceptually, not literally. Alot of the looks that Drake's are showcasing are done just to give an impression of how certain silhouettes, textures, fabrics and colours contrast and compliment each other. To me that photo has a pleasing aesthetic, because it is nice to see fun coloured Corduroy and a Camel Coat together. But of course I acknowledge that the outfit is nonsensical from a practical perspective. Drake's lookbooks arent always meant to be a 1:1 guide of how you should be wearing their clothes though. And this isn't new. Ralph Lauren has done this since forever. And those 80s Armani looks that everyone has been gushing about lately were also full of completely impractically layered outfits. Doesn't mean people can't take something away from them though.

To me I just hope they balance it a bit more. As I'm not a fan of the ALD direction the brand is going in personally. But I'm happy for that to exist if they are trying to cater to a new market, just as long as more down to earth lookbooks and styling will still be done.

Anyway, I shall now let this post be washed away in a sea of Archive Sale chatter!

Drake's is also, once again, falsely advertising the canvas construction of their jackets. This jacket in particular, among others, is completely unlined with no canvas, but it's described as having "half-canvas construction." This is really disappointing from a brand that purports to be about quality. Not saying these aren't nice clothes, but they need to do a lot better than this.

Interesting, some of this stuff is recent, not really "archive". For example, those ripstop overshirts are from this spring/summer. I saw them on their main website just a couple of days ago at full price, and now they're 70% off.
I don't totally understand this sale model but 🤷‍♂️

A word of advice to anyone browsing. The filters don't really work properly, at least not the few that I tried. For example, if you filter by "shirts" you'll get some of the shirts but not all. If you filter by "clothing" you only see a page worth of inventory. You have to remove the filters and just look through everything to make sure you're seeing everything in stock. Not sure if this applies to all filters or just some of them. Hope that is helpful.

anyone know how the ripstop 2 pocket over shirts fit? usually size up in their over shirts but not sure if the ripstop fabric will shrink like the other ones

Usually I’m on top of the sales, I’m there at midnight waiting. Shame on you guys, by 8am on the day of the sale you’ve usually left me nothing, but not today 😆

I picked up the casentino gilet in royal blue and orange, the canvas sailing chore coat in yellow, and an assortment of shirt. quite happy!

Was thinking about the casentino gilets.. but how would you wear them?

Picked up the only rugby shirt (ochre), blue white striped spread collar shirt, cotton linen navy brown white checked work shirt, and red wool long sleeved polo. Luckily a few expensive items which wereinterestimg but not that high on my wish list were out of stock in my size, for example the yellow suede chore jacket.

I’ve also noticed the d43 techno fabric jacket being on sale again. Just want to highlight that it is an excellent piece, very underrated imho, and I even paid full price.
