Inspired by the unpretentious, agrarian lifestyle of rural America, Relwen’s modern-vintage men’s clothing is tough enough to withstand wear-and-tear yet boasts a classic, clean-cut aesthetic. Based in New York City, but rooted in the farmlands of Ohio and Michigan, Relwen uses Old World weaving and embroidery techniques, durable materials, heavy-gauge knits, and authentic military hardware in designing its authentic polo shirts and sweaters, lightweight down shirt jackets and other menswear. Relwen’s outerwear collection is particularly impressive: the brand's waxed combat jacket, military parka, tropical field jacket, and peacoats come with practical features such as body liners made of quilted wool blend terry and detachable hoods. Relwen founders Jamie Rupp and his wife Susan call the Barn Swallow their company's icon, because it "reinforces our connection to all things lasting and real" — much like their clothing does.
Winter’s still hanging on, so you’d better be sure you have some solid, stylish outerwear to stave off the cold until the thaw. Check out this selection—from sharp wool trenches to tech-y puffers—to kit yourself out for the days ahead. Casual or formal, we’ve got just the thing to keep you feeling warm and looking smart.
The temperature may be rising a bit, but it’s not summer yet. And you still need something to stave off the chill in the spring air. We’ve got you covered with this massive collection of outerwear—from casual windbreakers, to trim leathers, to classic trenches. Whatever your style, grab that perfect transitional jacket here and wear it clear through the season.
The closer you look at a piece from Relwen, the more there is to appreciate—each is painstakingly crafted with special attention to fit, detail, and function. Faux-fur lined parkas and ultralight nylon jackets can weather even the most unforgiving winter days, while plaid workshirts in twill and flannel provide a suitably hefty counterpoint to military wind pants and heavy selvage denim. These heritage-inspired pieces are rugged enough for the wilderness, but so handsome you’ll want to wear them everywhere.
Here you'll find a fair share of jersey knit polos from three great American brands as well as a broad range of durable gear. L.A.-based Idol Radec offers short-sleeved dress shirts — like a poplin hiddenbutton Jacob shirt with straight hem — meant to be worn untucked but still elegantly. Though founded in 1975, Cockpit channels mid-century American styles with modern updates. And Relwen uses old-world weaving and embroidery techniques, durable materials, heavy-gauge knits and authentic military hardware to make long-lasting pieces.
