Penfield used to be known mainly for their more sober outdoor gear, but in recent times they’ve been making successful forays into less traditional territory as well. Following on from collaboratons with Stussy, Alife and DPMHI, the brand is now building on its solid base of technical expertise to produce a wider range of interesting casual clothing that sits nicely alongside their more classic pieces. Highlights among their new products include hickory striped bags, a new DPM jacket that zips into a sleeping bag and these shirts and jackets that play around with colours and fabrics to put a new spin on a couple of old classics. The Colour Block jacket and Tillson check shirts will be available this coming September (though if the spring weather in the UK is anything to go by they’d be just as useful now…).
