If there is anyone to make gear to prevent hypothermia in a brooding weather, we are pretty certain no one knows how better than Seattle's Crescent Down Works. With deep roots in outer sportswear especially in making well-insulated thermal down vests, the company had extended itself into a great line of down clothing that can withstand the harshest outdoor conditions.
While Crescent Down Works has got the foundations of insulation down, Dave's Quality Meat had been the quintessential purveyor of style on the Lower East Side. These two labels came together for a collaboration this season on a great fall essential -- the Montagne Parka. Crafted from 60/40 nylon cloth shell with ripstop nylon lining, leather toggles and reinforced buttons, this basic parka is keeps in simple in tan and navy shades and lets functionality highlight the jacket.
With an extra flexibility in terms of style (will act as a great overcoat for pretty much anything in your closet) and weather, the parka will be released next Friday on Sep. 11 at DQM.
