You gotta respect Archival Clothing’s approach to product design. Start with what’s widely considered to be the pinnacle version of something. Pinpoint what works about it and what doesn’t. Update the design to address the things that don’t (as well as add some originality). And boom, a new and thoughtful iteration of a classic staple, offering the best of the old, with just the right amount of new. The most recent item to receive the Archival treatment: the striped naval tee. For their version, AC teamed up with Jordan Sayler of Winn Perry and venerable Portland, OR shirt-makers Columbiaknit. The result is a heavy-weight jersey cotton tee with a trim fit, and slew of hard-wearing details (chain-stitched neck tape, cover-stitched collar seam, double needle hem), making it a near-perfect year-round layer, that will last for many years to come.
