Sporting a UC Jacket and some of our new Site Pants, we paid the Upper East Side a visit. Normally finding ourselves there to check out the museums or kick around Central Park, we always enjoy taking a walk in the neighborhood. The awnings that jut out from the apartments, the properly dressed elderly, the classical architecture; it all comes together to feel like the New York we know from the movies.

The Site Pant has been one we've wanted to produce for awhile now. Taking technical details from our Site Short, we developed a pant that has vislon zippered front pockets and a reverse coil back patch pocket. One of the main reasons our Site Short main body fabric is constructed from a sturdy taslan is because we wanted it to be able to stand up to heavy abrasion and water use. However, we recognized that the taslan did not work well on a pant due to it’s lack of stretch.

For the solution, we turned to the same four way stretch fabric used on the SS19 camp hero short instead. Constructed from a nylon spandex blend, the fabric is lightweight and supple. The stretch element of the pant makes fall underlayering a possibility on cold hikes but you’ll find the fabric breaths well when worn on its own too.

The UC Jacket comes from humble beginnings. We referenced a simple lightweight sports garment that you would normally find on the side of a collegiate practice field. Instead of leaning into bold elements of the original garment design we decided to refine the jacket. The UC Jacket has no tackle twill embroidery motifs or bold color blocking, instead we centered a tight, high stitch count embroidery on the center chest of the jacket and produced our three color options using tonal color pallette.

High quality, large head, locking YKK reverse coil zippers secure the center front opening of the jackets and the hand pockets. Reverse coil zips minimize the chunky aesthetic sometimes created by large format Vislon and Coil zips. Inside the jacket is a substantial four way stretch liner fabric that wicks moisture and provides a comfortable layer between the jacket and your body. With temperatures starting to dip, the UC Jacket works well for a morning jog or a trip to the local bodega.

Model is 6'2" and 165 lbs. He wears size Medium UC Jackets and size Large Site Pants.
