It’s no secret that Division Road is big on heritage product. Each piece from their curated selection of goods is a trip back in time, but their latest venture, ‘The Allied Archive Project,” pays homage to times-past with an exclusive capsule collection steeped in military history.
The aim of the Allied Archive Project is to highlight and reference the allied relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom by creating a set of garments and accessories that utilize authentic fabrics and silhouettes of the wartime battledress of both of the partnered nations. Extensive research and groundwork has gone into the collection, which consists of a six-piece head-to-toe outfit.
Making up the top half of the get-up is a herringbone wool cap made in cahoots with Woolrich Woolen Mills, a Private White V.C. bomber made from deadstock British wool, and a houndstooth shirt made with Corridor NYC. From the waist down, a Tanner Goods belt, made from English bridle leather, holds up a pair of moleskin pants made by Shockoe Atelier and to finish it all off, they’ve got an epic pair of boots. Division Road worked with Trickers and Horween Leather Co. to create a pair of welted, 9-hole boots made from ‘Mechanical’ Bison Leather, which, until now, was only used for vehicle parts and weapons.
Each item from the collection comes complete with military-inspired garment labels and a commemorative pin.
