Gitman Bros. for Penfield Fall/Winter 2010

For the Fall 2010 season, Penfield brought on American shirtmaker, Gitman Bros., to deliver two authentic Made in the USA styles. The Woburn is made of Oxford cloth in classic blue while the Flitton is a rose flannel style. Both pieces blend, “Penfield’s traditional durability and practicality with the master construction and fine materials for which Gitman Bros. is known.”

Penfield Leather Outback Vest 35th Anniversary Edition

Penfield Leather Outback Vest 35th Anniversary Edition

We displayed Penfield’s Fall 2010 lookbook just last week and you may have noticed leather vest in the imagery. It stood out to me then and we’ve gotten more information on it. It’s actually the rebirth of Penfield’s iconic Outback Vest in 100% calfskin leather, made to commemorate the brand’s 35th anniversary. The Outback first debuted back in the 70s and has become a staple style in Penfield’s winter lineups.

The contrast brown leather shoulder yoke, front snap closure, two insulated handwarmer pockets and premium 80/20 goose down insulation are all key features which pay homage to Penfield’s rich history. If you want one, get your clicker finger ready for September 15th, which is when the Penfield site will re-launch with its fall offerings.

A Longmeadow Morning | Penfield Fall/Winter 2010 Lookbook

We’ve gotten our hands on the Penfield‘s lookbook for the fall and we have to say, the imagery is tremendous. With the Massachusetts-based label celebrating the second half of its 35th Anniversary this season, we were confident this line would rank among their finest works. A Longmeadow Morning is meant to convey a sense of where the brand came from, as well as where it’s headed as a modern, fresh take on life in the outdoors. The lookbook shows off some must-haves including a two-tone leather vest in camel with a little bit of dark brown.

Look for the collection at fine retailers nationwide this month.

Massachusetts-based Penfield has been delivering authentic outdoor apparel since 1975 and with such extensive experience, the label’s been able to redefine the industry time and time again. Their lineup of Hudson Wax Cloth jackets is proof of the brand’s dedication to excellence. The densely woven, 65/35 poly-cotton blend is coated with an environmentally friendly dry wax impregnation to deliver a material that’s windproof, water-repellent and extremely durable as well. With time, the surface of the fabric will get natural imperfections to enhance the overall look of the garment.
