Update – Archival Scarves and Tees

April 6th, 2012

We’re releasing Archival cotton jersey scarves and tees in new colors for Spring/Summer.

Our shirts are made of soft 7 oz cotton jersey, with chain-stitched neck tape, cover-stitched collar seam, double needle sewn hem and perfect fit – slim, not tight.

Crafted from the same cotton jersey as our Archival tees, the Archival scarves feature double turned edges, bar tacked at each of the corners.

Color notes: the new natural/red/navy stripe jersey was custom knit for Archival. It’s my new favorite colorway. And digital display does not do justice to the vibrancy of the new red tee which was produced from deadstock fabric from factory archives.

We just took delivery of a new production run of Columbiaknit Scarves produced exclusively for Archival Clothing. We’ve restocked the popular royal navy/white scarf and added new colors in a lighter weight (7 oz) all cotton jersey (the same as our t-shirts). Original project report here.

In collaboration with Portland based Columbiaknit, Archival Clothing announces the release of a line of 100% cotton scarves. Since 1921, Columbiaknit has been producing best quality knitwear right here in the Pacific Northwest. The scarves were designed for us by our friend, Jordan Saylor of Winn Perry. The fabric for the scarves comes from original, deadstock floor fabrics from Columbiaknit. Made of 8 oz cotton jersey, with turned down, stitched edges bartacked at the corners.

Columbiaknit scarves are available in two colorways:

– Royal / White stripe
– Black/ Gray mock twist

100% cotton
Machine washable

Dimensions: 11″ x 60″

Archival Progress Report

October 20th, 2010
Shawl collar cardigans (late November delivery)

Archival Clothing web belt with Horween leather tip (next week)

Steele Canvas Basket tote w/revised stencil (next week)

Archival Field Bag (coming soon)

On Thursday, we’re heading out to NYC to see Tom and visit shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Tom and I will set aside time to review notes on the waxed jacket sample I just picked up from our sewer in Portland. Here are a few more Archival Clothing projects that will be making their debut in the coming weeks and months.

Next week, we’ll have a restock of Archival Clothing web belts. For this production run, we’ve die cut a lightweight Horween hide for the belt tip. The belt will combine three of our favorite archival materials: Horween leather, mil spec cotton webbing and solid brass hardware.

I just received the first sample of our pure new worsted wool, shawl collar cardigan. Centralia Knitting Mills should deliver our full shipment by mid to late November. Look for the sweater in four colorways: multi-weave gray, cardinal red, navy and light gray. We’ve sized the sweaters for everyone from petite women to semi-sizeable gents. I’ll be sporting my sample during shop visits this weekend.

Terry is busy sewing up new runs of our Archival Clothing Rucksacks and Flap Musettes in all colorways. He will also be working on our first small production run of Archival Clothing Field Bags. I’ll file a separate report on this project closer to the release date.

In the next two weeks, we will be taking delivery of more Steele Canvas Basket totes with a stencil based on a vintage company pattern. Our custom janitor’s tote will probably be available by mid-November.

We’re waiting to see the first samples of our discharge printed, US made, all cotton kerchief. Progress report on this project to be filed shortly.

Check back in the next few weeks for more product pix and updates.

And look for an Archival NYC field trip report next week.
