A year ago, we set out to design a pair of warm ups that would reproduce the historical look and modern fit of our Archival Sweatshirt. Inspired by classic warm up pants and vintage athletic apparel, our new Archival Sweatpant is made from the same loop-back French Terry as our Archival Sweatshirt. We added features that nod to heritage details from the past but acknowledge the demand for a more tailored look for everyday, non gym wear.  Highlights include rib knit trim at the cuffs, a gusseted crotch for ease of movement and a rear patch pocket for easy wallet carry.  We also partnered with Benjo’s to create a special cotton lace drawstring closure.

Made in Oregon by a great partner who has been making sturdy cotton garments since 1921.

-Reinforced gusseting – for better fit and ease of movement
-On seam pockets with bartack reinforcements
-Rib knit trim at the cuffs
-Rear patch pocket
-Benjo’s cotton lace drawstring at the waist
-Yarn dyed, 100% cotton, loopback French Terry
-Fit is on the slim side of regular

Archival Graduation

June 3rd, 2015



Archival Sweatshirt Salt and Pepper On body

This week Archival loses two of our favorite creative contributors, Kristina Parker and Tyler Rogers, to graduation.  The pair will be moving from Eugene to NYC to start new jobs in design and advertising. Over the past year, Kris and Tyler have applied their creative talents to Archival’s spring lookbook, logo decal designs and motion themed video (shot by their friend and photographer, Grant Lemon).  This team will be sadly missed. We wish them the best of luck and hope to reconnect during our next Brooklyn lookbook shoot.

As for graduation gifts, we recommend our Archival Sweatshirts (modeled by Kris and Tyler) which are nicely sized for both men and women.

A few more grad gift suggestions from the team:


We love following the Instagram feed osamu19760714 whose documentation of everyday ensembles inspires us to wear more khaki, untuck our shirts, layer up and update our cap and canvas sneaker collection.  Osamu’s feed frequently features Archival garb and bags including this economical, canvas duck Zip Pouch carried as a casual, summertime attache.


You don’t have to be a cyclist to find a use for this handsome and durable Archival Tool Roll. Fill up the six pockets with everything from drafting pencils and paint brushes to multi-tools or a small Opinel. Perfect for artists, hobbyists and students. Made from waxed cotton gridwax canvas, with heavy-duty features including bias-tape bound edges, bartacking at stress points, high quality brass hardware and a leather lace.


We encourage every grad to launch out on an overseas adventure. Our rugged Archival Rolltop Messenger is a terrific traveling companion. Rugged, durable waxed twill deflects the elements while the wide, adjustable shoulder strap (made from custom, mil spec cotton web), makes the bag comfortable to wear while touring museums or walking through the country.

Archival Details – Benjo’s for Archival

May 15th, 2014

At Archival we spend a lot of time contemplating the fine details of our products.  Everything we source for a product (from leather to webbing to hardware) is evaluated for quality, beauty, durability and historical accuracy. Case and point is our use of a custom Benjo’s cotton drawcords for our Archival Hoodie.   When we couldn’t find a cotton drawcord that met our specifications we reached out to Benjo’s to see if they could make one for us.   Benjos obliged and produced a beautiful, bone colored cotton braid  exclusively for Archival.  We are thankful to have terrific American based manufacturing partners like Benjo’s to help us source these invisible but crucial elements of our products.
