Spring begins today here at Penfield and we are particularly delighted to introduce our brand new Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. This season, we kick off a return to warm weather with a wide-ranging, versatile collection of men’s and women’s outerwear and apparel “for Life in the Open”.
Equal parts style and function, this collection continues to take inspiration from our Massachusetts roots for a comprehensive selection of jackets, shirting, shorts, pants and accessories made to wear from the first days of spring through the last days of summer.
Both our Trailwear and Classic collections return with such familiar favorites as the Gibson and Lockwood jackets, alongside some new silhouettes like the Barnstable, Sconset and Walpole, all featuring our very own wind-resistant and water-repellent Hudson Wax Cloth.
This Spring also sees the introduction of a new Lightweight Hudson Wax Cloth. Perfect for a milder climate, the nylon/cotton blend with wax impregnation wicks moisture away from the body in a lighter fabrication than our original Hudson Wax Cloth.
When it’s warm enough to shed your coat, we also offer a vast array of lightweight tops and bottoms. In addition to enduring styles in plaid and chambray, shirts with contrasting fabrics and unexpected details add a twist to traditional pieces. The vintage garment washing of the Sherborn, the patchwork oxford Stockbridge, and raglan sleeves on the Watertown are all inspired by classic Cape Cod casualwear from the 50’s and 70’s.
Tie-dyed accents, shaped collars and a full range of Polo shirts also round out the collection. Shorts pick up on many of the same cues as the shirting, with the Grafton style alone available in twill, patchwork, tie-dye and oxford. The practical, stylish Selford 6-pocket cargo short with contrast lining is meant to be worn with any number of shirts from this new collection.
Not to be outdone, our Women’s line for Spring/Summer 2011 offers a comprehensive array of timeless Classic and Trailwear silhouettes – including the Anoka overcoat and Walpole field jacket. Our women’s range is finally complemented by the Anzak shirt, a favorite from the men’s collection, as well as our trademark hard-wearing Oxon satchels.
