Made in South Central Los Angeles
Cramerton Army Cloth is one of our all-time favorite chino fabrics. First manufactured in 1929 for the US Army by Cramerton Mills in North Carolina, this hard-wearing cloth became the standard uniform fabric for the American forces fighting abroad in WWII. When the GIs returned home and enrolled in universities across the country, they brought their uniform trousers with them—this time pairing them with oxford shirts and blue blazers, rather than army jackets, and a new civilian uniform was born.
The fabric is 100% cotton and a year-round 9oz weight. It softens and fades beautifully with age. In the world of chino twills, we've found this to have more character than any other fabric. The color is a perfect navy blue tone.
The Doyle is our loving homage to the classic French work jacket. Starting with the minimal and utilitarian shape of the original garment, we upgraded the fit, construction, and fabric to create a versatile piece that can be worn as an all-day smart casual garment.
Two open patch pockets sit at the hip. They're doubled against the body, allowing your hands to use them both from the side and from the top. A single exterior pocket and a long interior pocket sit on either sides of the chest.
The sleeves close with a functional single cuff, and can be unbuttoned and pushed up your forearms. The rear is single vented and the soft top point collar cuts a rakish profile whether open or closed. The buttons are natural corozo nut, dyed a gorgeous brandy tone.
Made in Los Angeles
Each Doyle is made by a handful of skilled operators at our Downtown Los Angeles facility. Every piece is cut and assembled by hand, and their proficiency is evident in the clean finishing and consistent stitching on each garment. These are among the finest and most meticulously made garments in the United States.
