We have restocked our our cotton jersey scarves for the season. Wrap them, knot them, or simply toss them around your neck, these scarves make an ideal companion to keep away the winter chill. Made from the same sturdy, yet soft 7 oz. cotton jersey as our Archival tee shirts, our scarves feature double turned edges, bar tacked at each of the corners. Machine wash warm, tumble dry medium or hang dry. Available via the Archival Web Shop.

In celebration of Made in USA goods produced by small manufacturers, we will be featuring three Archival product promotions for our fans this extended weekend – Thursday through Monday. Our special promotion will include: Archival Flap Musettes, Wool Scarves, and Dopp Kits. With each purchase of a featured Archival product, we will include a small gift. This is our way of introducing you to another US manufacturer. Take a look at our Holiday Gift Ideas for the three Archival specials and more. Orders of $100 qualify for Free domestic (ground) shipping. Thank you for your generous support of Archival and small businesses manufacturing in the US!
Here a few of my favorite selections from the Fall Archival line. We’re now offering the Archival Rolltop in waxed twill (the perfect fabric for the damp) while reintroducing our Flap Musette in a lighter weight, carmine red canvas duck (a visual refusal of the gloom). Small scale accessories for the season include waxed canvas trail caps, cotton jersey scarves and austere yet snappy leather cuffs by AC friend Nick Hollows.
For Spring, we’re restocking cotton chambray and printed scarves cut and sewn by our friends at the Hill-side, based in Brooklyn, New York.
Hill-side scarf in Plum Violet – This is AC designer Tom’s favorite colorway. It’s made from a 100% cotton 5 oz. selvedge chambray woven in Japan.
Next to Montgomery Wards and Mamet’s State and Main, the Queen (Frears 2006) is my favorite shopping opportunities. I love to browse all the classic Barbours, Range Rovers, silk scarves, leather brogues, tweed keeperwear, cashmere crewnecks and matching dog breeds. Like a mail order house lost to time, The Queen stocks a small but deep selection of classic items – unchanged by fashion or consumer demand. Here are a few pages from my favorite catalog:
Archival is pleased to announce the release of our first all wool scarf. Our scarf is made just for us in Portland, Oregon from fine gauge worsted wool yarn from Maine. The wonderfully unique knit pattern was developed by one of our manufacturers to use up a stockpile of acrylic yarn; when Tom spotted it in their factory he knew that we’d have to make it in wool. The open knit makes the scarf lightweight, wonderfully cozy, and plenty warm. It’s sure to become an everyday favorite in chilly weather. Dimensions: 70″ x 8″
Special thanks to Nicole and Erin for sourcing the fine gauge wool and Keri and Dave for their fit testing notes.
