Columbiaknit for Archival Clothing

Sometimes the most simple garments are the ones that look the best, the ones that can be worn day after day, rain or shine, summer or winter – there’s a reason they’re timeless. Archival Clothing worked with one of the last remaining companies creating knitwear in the United States, Columbiaknit – to revisit an essential wardrobe staple, the crew neck sweatshirt. Altering it with a modernized fit that isn’t too slim, but still fitted enough to be worn by itself, or layered. Made of an 8-9oz mid-weight terry cloth, it is amazingly comfortable and already feels like you’ve been wearing it for the last five years. The construction is top-notch: rib V insert at the neck, chain-stitched neck & waist ribbing and a cover stitch along the sleeves which makes them fall perfectly on the arms… a lot of sweatshirts have that awkward “bunched up” look – this one does not. They’re available in limited quantities over at the Archival Clothing web store in two different colors: smokey grey & chevron stripe. If they’re out of your size, don’t worry – they’ll be restocked shortly. If you’re impatient, my buddy Jason has these available over at Wilderness Workshop.

  1. Great post. Made me realize that the Columbia Knit factory is a short bike ride away from my house. It’s in the ‘Mill End’ area, home to Pendleton Woolen Mills. Gotta love goods that are produced close to home!
