Archival Field Trip – NYC

January 27th, 2014

Last week, the full Archival team converged in NYC for (capsule). Despite arctic conditions, we had a great time showing our bags, scouting new brands and checking in with old friends. Here are a few snaps from the show. If you missed us in NYC, we’ll be exhibiting at (capsule) Las Vegas in two weeks.

Archival field trip – (capsule) NYC

January 19th, 2014

Archival is in New York for (capsule) this week.   Nicole and I/Lesli spent the Saturday before the show checking in on a few favorite shopping haunts.  Our best find of the day was a navy duck, Engineered Garments Service Coat (half off at Nepenthes). Winter seems to be the time for sample sales and generous store discounts.  Armor Lux (my staple for stripes) is selling a large batch of made in France, cotton nautical tops for $39/each.   Here are a few low res snaps from our day trip.  More reports to come from (capsule) proper.  The full Archival team of Tom, Lynn, Nicole and Lesli will be assembling tomorrow to set up for the show.

Archival Field Trip – Project NYC

January 21st, 2013
  
If you’re in NYC for market week, drop by and visit Archival at Project.  We’ll be participating in MADE by PROJECT,  a pop-up concept comprised of some of our favorite heritage brands creating products on the floor.  While I won’t be hammering grommets or bartacking web belts, I will be wandering the show taking snaps and greeting far flung friends and blog readers.   Show information here.
 

Archival Fieldtrip – NYC/Brooklyn

Snap views of my recent visit to NYC/Brooklyn.

Wages of Fear – best film I’ve seen in ages. If you live in NYC, you should be at the movies right now.

Armando Negron, owner, Upland Trading Co (199x?)

I’m heading to New York for a quick visit with friends. In addition, I’ll be scouting a few favorite shops and taking in archival entertainments at Film Forum, at The Oak Room and on Broadway.

Alas, not on my agenda will be a visit to the Upland Trading Co, the best outdoor clothing store no longer in business.

Archival field report to follow. Flashback to last year’s AC in NYC posts here and here.

Archival Announcement: Pop Up Flea Appearance

November 18th, 2010

There’s a Pop Up Flea in Nolita this weekend, and we will be there!

Come by on Friday or Saturday and see what’s new at Archival Clothing. Meet Tom, the designer of our bags, and share your feedback. This is an exciting event because many of the best purveyors of heritage menswear are participating. Although it’s billed as a menswear gathering, there’s sure to be classic heritage styles that appeal to women.
For attendees of the Flea, we will be offering a special deal on our Navy Tote – plus we’ll have free domestic shipping on any item in the Archival Clothing store not in stock at the event.
Here’s the official announcement. We’re there on Friday and Saturday. Come see us!
Pop Up Flea
Fri – Sun, Nov 19-21

Nice Flea preview on Esquire including a nod to our A.C. rucksack.

Archival Field Trip: NYC/Brooklyn (Pt 2)

November 11th, 2010

Back in Eugene, I’m fast forwarding through some more snapshots from our recent trip to NYC.

If you live in NYC, you should be watching a movie nearly every night. No excuses. During our trip, we were able to catch a screening of Frederick Wiseman‘s new documentary, Boxing Gym. In a future post, we will review some of the archival workouts found in Wiseman’s film. Our favorite: striking an old truck tire with a sledge hammer. In an “only in NY” moment, our Wiseman evening concluded unexpectedly with an audience Q&A led by an NYU film professor and a professional boxer (“The Polish Punisher”).

I stalked these gents down the street near Freemans Sporting Club. I was curious about the untreated natural duck shoulder bag, assuming it was a special Tokyo-only item. I later found it at J.Crew.

Sunday morning, we dropped by one of my favorite NYC shops, Barbour by Peter Elliot. I know most of the inventory by heart but I was surprised by this new Barbour waxed cotton blazer w/integrated quilt liner.

During our visit to Freemans Sporting Club,we ran into these friends of Archival Clothing (Seattle transplants). For obvious reasons, we love Freeman’s ethos of producing locally made, heritage inspired clothing from the best quality materials. The chore jacket in 5.5 oz Waxwear waxed cotton is a personal favorite.

Fellow Oregonian and A Restless Transplant blogger, Foster Huntington, joined our archival walking tour Saturday afternoon.


Quick pause at the J.Crew Liquor Store.





Since we sell our Archival Rucksacks through Peter Buchanan’s Best Made Co, we wanted to stop by his studio and meet Peter in person. We chatted about the genesis of Peter’s axe project and a mystery chore coat he picked up in Sweden. Turns out the jacket is made by Saint James and it’s a model readily available through our own distributor (if you’re interested, email me). Per normal, the size small jacket fits me (and Tom) like David Byrne’s suit in Stop Making Sense. Lensman Foster took some great snaps of the studio visit.



On Sunday, we made a pilgrimage to MOMA to see the Frankfurt kitchen and some time based art.




On Monday, Tom and I finished up our tour of shops. We stopped at Odin, a great NYC menswear shop that carries Engineered Garments, an Archival Clothing favorite. I was impressed by the friendly, low key store staff. They didn’t seem to mind me snapping ten thousand views of my current obsession, a ripstop cotton pea coat by Engineered Garments. During our visit, a delivery gent came by to pick up a package for GQ. I considered slipping an A.C. bag into the bundle.







Friend Jing, aka Hands on with X, recommended that we visit Blue in Green, “a men’s lifestyle store,” which she shops from Australia. Blue in Green specializes in men’s fashion from Japan, England, Italy, France and the United States. Not surprisingly, our favorite items–shirts, denim, and jackets–came from Japan. The Real McCoy rigger boots were total show stoppers.

Nearing heritage overload, our last stop on our tour was the Nepenthes store in the garment district. Tom chatted with one of the staff while I headed to the back area of the shop to view the FWK Engineered Garments collection for women (review to follow).

We picked up a few bagels (consolation biscuits) for our return flight back to Eugene.
