While Crescent Down Works continue to impress us, they are still only available locally via South Willard, however in Japan the brand was tough to avoid – in a good way. Several of the shops had done special make ups including different color combinations, specific fabrics and different collars on the jackets and vests. Although I don't have proof yet, I would expect to see more CDW showing up in stateside retailers due to the increase in coverage and the fact that they make some great looking products. One of the more obscure versions I really like is this hickory stripe down vest. The chest patch and tan collar definitely gives it a Carhartt feeling aesthetic. I think the shape of the vest is really nice and the subtle changes make it a great piece when you're going a little more into the working wear look.
