Fall 2008: Orthodox

Justin wears the Wolfe sweater, Blake jeans, and Zuriick lace-ups

Justin wears the Chaucer coat, Kipling shirt, Blake jeans, and Zuriick lace-ups

Chaucer coat, $286

Stand out this fall in the Chaucer jacket, done in a striking dip-dye ombre. Double-breasted, made of a thick wool, and fully lined in quilted polyester, the Chaucer is the standout piece of their fall collection. Leather zipper pulls, two pockets at the hips, and one chest pocket.

Bukowski jacket, $242

This hooded windbreaker definitely breaks the mold. Asymmetric placket with large snap buttons. Fully lined in ultra soft jersey. Ribbed cuffs, hem, and arm inserts make for a trim silhouette. Snap button pockets at the hips and zippered chest pocket.

Wolfe sweater, $194
Sizes S, (M, L sold out)

A chunky knit sweater that avoids looking bulky, the Wolfe is made of 100% merino wool, perfect as outerwear or as a layer when it gets really cold. Elbow patches lend some refinement, while the shawl collar and neck buckles provide a variety of ways to wear it.

Chekhov shirt, $194

One of Orthodox’s signature shirts gets an update. Details include welt pockets at the hips and chest, five-button sleeve, detachable neck strap, and convertible epaulettes. Wear it by itself or as a shirt jacket for a new approach to layering.

Hawthorn shirt in plaid and grey, $147

Wild West meets high-tech in this re-imagined western shirt. Button-down flap pockets at the chest and a gunflap over the left shoulder make this piece surprising, but subtle.

Kipling shirt, $149

Never has mixing a knit and a woven come off so cool. A contrast woven four-button placket with detachable neck strap makes for a dashing silhouette. Ribbed cuffs and hem keep the silhouette lean while two kangaroo pockets add a practical touch.

Eliot tee, $79

Layering reaches new heights of sophistication with pieces like the Eliot. This wide-neck long-sleeve tee in a purple, grey stripe looks deceptively simple, but details like raw edges and sewn-on buttons make this much more than a tee.

James thermal henley, $96

With an asymmetric button placket and long-drapey sleeves, it’s hard to mistake the James as just another Henley. Thin, gauze-y cotton makes this the ideal layering piece for fall.

Blake jeans, $169

Even jeans get an update. Take your typical straight leg jeans, add some darts for fit, extra zippers and pockets for functionality, and coat it with resin for a beautiful finish. These run small, so try your true size and one size down. Unlike other denim, these will not stretch much, as the coating keeps the jeans’ shape. Wear them down and the coating will develop into a lustrous patina.
