New Release – Trail Cap in Japanese Denim

August 24th, 2014

We’re thrilled to be releasing our popular Archival Trail Cap in Japanese denim.  We couldn’t find a lightweight cotton denim baseball cap that was readily available and made in the USA – so we produced one ourselves. Like our original Trail Cap, the denim version is a classic five panel design with a Horween leather tab back adjustment.  Ideal for all-weather walking, fishing, and hunting – and campus wear too!  Made of a 11 ounce Japanese cotton denim that’s both durable and lightweight.  Available via our Archival Web Shop.

Update – Archival Rolltop Messenger

August 18th, 2014

If you have ever browsed our grid of bags you might be overwhelmed by the range of available styles – from Rucksacks to Rolltops to Flap Musettes, etc.  Most folks identify Archival with our original Archival Rucksack or Archival Rolltop. While both bags are terrific carryalls, I am starting to direct customers to our recently released Archival Rolltop Messenger.  Intended as a sizable daily workhorse, our Roll Top Messenger takes design cues from our Roll Top and technical cycling bags, but is executed in our top-grade range of natural materials.  This is an ideal bag for the cyclist, motorcyclist, fisherman, or anyone else who needs a burly shoulder bag that’s extremely weather-resistant.  It’s also the perfect bag for students contemplating a satchel for campus carry.

It’s August – the last month for larky summer sporting events. Here are some well appointed sportswomen participating in a national archery tournament in the summer of 1915.
