Crescent Down Works is no stranger to collaborations, having worked with both the Ace Hotel and NYC’s DQM in recent years. However it’s their latest collab with Oregon’s Archival Clothing that’s caught our attention this time around. The Waxed Down Vest is made by hand (in CDW’s Seattle workshop) of a 5.5 oz water-resistant waxed cotton/nylon blend shell, with a soft worsted wool knit collar—made specifically for the project by Centralia Knitting Mills.
For insulation, 700 fill down will surely keep your core warm, while a two-way zipper, storm flap and an elasticized bottom hem ensure body heat stays close to home. An inner chest pocket and a fire engine red nylon lining round out the classically styled vest. Visit Archival Clothing for more information on the Waxed Down Vest—which is available in three colors and sells for $350.
