Archival x Crescent Down Works Waxed Vest

Here is another exceptional vest that just went up the other day, so unfortunately it didn't make it into our Article on our favorite Vests earlier in the week. Our friends from Portland Oregon's Archival Clothing continue to press on, looking to not only create an impressive utilitarian main line but also apply the same amount of scrutiny when they branch out into collaborated items as well. For these waxed down vests they teamed up with Seattle's Crescent Down Works to produce two versions of this classic fall and winter staple– they had you in mind if you happen to live near a coast in the colder months. This vest will keep you warm and dry, something these two Pacific Northwest brands completely understand. Even if you don't live in a damp and cold climate, these would work wonders to keep you warm as you head further inland.
