Holiday 2008: Orthodox

We're glad to see that the Orthodox guys have stuck to the slick tailoring and attention to detail that we like so much about them. As always, a lot of the names are the same, but, rest assured, there's plenty of new stuff to get you excited. Click on prices to see more photos or to purchase from the Dapper webstore.

Marquez jacket, $290

Love leather bombers? Hate dry cleaning bills and the hassle of spot cleaning? How does a machine washable, waxed cotton version sound, then? This season, the Marquez comes in a 100% cotton outer with a distressed waxed finished that gives it structure and texture. A full polyester lining and ribbed neck lining provide comfort and extra warmth. Ribbing at the cuffs and hem make this fit nice and snug. With zippers and flaps all over the front, the Marquez has a 8 total pockets. Heavy-duty zip front closure.

St. Augustine jacket, $264

The St. Augustine is a great casual cotton jacket with a full cotton lining that has gone through a great washing and aging process for a jacket that's soft to the touch but still has plenty of shape. Zip front with heavy duty snap storm placket. On the front there are two snap-down flap pockets and three besom pockets. Ribbed cuff and drawstring at hem for fit. Drawstring hood with inset neck to keep your neck toasty. Darted and pieced construction all throughout.

Austen plaid shirt, $141

Crinkled, soft cotton in a subtle brown plaid give the Austen a lived-in look. But, as always, the details are what make this shirt more than a shirt. A double-row of buttons allows for a looser or tighter fit, depending on which set you use. Button-down flap besom pocket at the chest. Double-button barrel cuffs.

Sir Lawrence cardigan in charcoal, $180

The Sir Lawrence falls somewhere between a cardigan and a jacket: the heavy knit with ribbed cuffs and hem say it's a cardigan, but the canvas inserts at the shoulder, placket, and pockets say it's a jacket. The perfect combination of slouch and structure, the Sir Lawrence has an extended heavy-duty snap placket for a high-neck look, but looks just as good draped and left unbuttoned.

Sir Lawrence cardigan in black, $180

The same piece as above, but in black.

Kierkegaard jacket, $305

A parka to end all parkas. Although it's tough to see in the picture, the Kierkegaard is done in a thick, combed cotton that has an almost suede-like hand to the fabric. Full zip front with hidden snap storm placket lead up to a low stand collar with zipper teeth detailing. Subtle military-inspired details come in buttoned cuffs and epaulettes. Drawstring at waist, front hem, and back hem for fit. Two large flap pockets on front. Fulling lined.
