Fall Kit N°9 – Navy & Tweed

Our humble store here at Free/Man has been getting in some great new shipments recently including the Private White VC Tweed Bomber jacket, which provides a great starting point for this kit. Under it is layered the versatile Patrick Ervell heavy button collar shirt. It can be worn alone or layered during the cooler months, such as those we're into now. We're also happy to be stocking some excellent denim from Rogue Territory, one of the highlights from which is the Stantons. The 12.5 oz denim offering will keep you warm during the winter months, which in my opinion is the perfect few months to begin breaking in a new pair of raw denim. Also, conveniently, the new raw denim won't rub off much onto the rest of this kit. Keeping your feet warm under the Stantons are a pair of Grange Craft fair isle socks, imported from green old Ireland. They've served me nicely since I picked up a couple of pairs there over the summer and I was pleased to hear Neighbour in Vancouver is also a stockist. The Quoddy oxfords are a great wearing navy and will keep your feet comfortable and dry. They're known to age excellently and will look all the better for a good fall and winters wear. Finally, to keep your head warm, a knit cap from the great folks at Inverallen, where those knitters who plied their trade in Scotland have been employed to keep their craft going.
