All about the evolution of our shirts

Posted on August 08, 2017 by Team Edgevale | 0 Comments

After a two year hiatus, woven button down shirts are back.  We left no stone unturned in creating the best fitting, most comfortable shirts we've ever made at a tremendous value.  The foundation of our new shirt program is fit, fabric and factory.

RUGGED SLIM STRAIGHT FIT

What the hell does that word salad mean?  Room to move where it counts for athletic bodies but streamlined for a modern, tailored look.  Comfort and mobility without sacrificing style points.  Designed to be your go to for any occasion.  All button downs are now built on the same chassis and pre-shrunk, so your chambray size is the same as your flannel size is the same as your Truckee Shirt size, so on and so forth.  If you need measurements, the size chart is here.  If you've still got questions, don't hesitate to drop us a line at info@edgevaleusa.com.  We live and breathe this stuff and want to help you make the right choice.  

SAN FRANCISCO MADE
We searched high and low for the right manufacturing partner, from LA to Texas to New York but eventually ended up right back in the Bay Area.  Consistency, reliability, accountability, fair labor practices and open lines of communication were our keys.  Good vibes don't hurt either.  We found all of that and then some at a specialty shirt manufacturer in San Francisco, 15 miles from our west Oakland design studio.  We're in the factory constantly, tweaking things, relaying your feedback and generally just trying to get better at what we do every day.  We don't hand the work off to a sourcing agent 5,000 miles away.  We like to get our hands dirty.

FABRIC
We worked with some of the world's best mills to bring our ideas to life.  The goal is provide the perfect alchemy of wash, feel, durability and color.  Our fall collection features custom made twills and flannels for every occasion, from field ready beat it to shit, to in-front-of-the-wood-stove cozy that are going to knock your socks off.

We've got the A's to your FQ's

Answers to some of the questions we're getting asked most these days...

When can I get my hands on a North Coast Shirt Jacket in heather gray?
The North Coast Shirt Jacket 3.0 will hit the website for pre-order in September.  We upgraded the fit and added some slick new details. You're gonna be stoked.  Check your email and Instagram for updates. 

Do the Cast Iron Pants and Cast Iron Utility Pants fit the same?  
Yep.  To use some automotive terminology, they are built on the same chassis.  Only difference is in the features.  All of our bottoms are now made in one of the best heavy duty pant factories in the USA, so size consistency from color to color and style to style has never been better.  
I missed out on the last Campfire Pant release, are you making more?
You're damn right we are.  They'll be back and better than ever in September.  New fit, new features and if it's possible, even more comfortable.  Stoked to show you what's coming down the pipeline.  

What's the warranty situation on your products?
Lifetime guaranteed.  No strings attached.  No bullshit.  Something rips or breaks down, let us know and we'll get you patched up (or replaced if necessary) and back in the field.  Drop us an email at info@edgevaleusa.com to get the process started.  

Can you guys hook me up with some stickers?
Absolutely.  Just drop us an email at info@edgevaleusa.com with your name and address and we'll drop 'em in the mail.  We love seeing pictures of where you stick them and so do all the other Edgevale fans.  Snap some pics and tag us on Instagram so we can see what you're up to.

Can I swing by the Oakland warehouse to pick up an order / try something on / make an exchange / have a cup of coffee / eat a burrito?
We'd love to see you.  Drop us an email at info@edgevaleusa.com if you're keen to swing by and we'll work out a date and time.  

The Nitty Gritty | Cast Iron Pants

Posted on January 18, 2017 by Team Edgevale | 0 Comments

Why are Edgevale pants better?  We sweat the small stuff so all you have to do is put them on and have fun or get to work.  And if you're lucky those two things aren't mutually exclusive.  

FIT
Our fit block is made for an athletic body with motion in mind.  With the Cast Iron Pant we've created our signature Rugged Slim Straight Fit.  There's room in the thigh for athletically built legs to do work and a gradual taper below the knee so the pants will always drape nicely over your shoes or boots.  We use a soft, curved waistband to match the natural contours of your waist rather than fight against it because durable shouldn't have to mean uncomfortable. 

VERSATILITY
We like to look good but our priority is to be comfortable and ready for action at any moment.  Restriction is the enemy for the active lifestyle which is why we added a diamond gusset to the crotch.  The diamond gusset eliminates four seams coming together in one spot creating freedom of movement and a more comfortable wearing experience.  A gusset also helps distribute stress around the crotch area making the pants more durable.  

DURABILITY
It's hard to cook a great meal without great ingredients.  Making great pants is no different.  Cast Iron Pants are constructed of our proprietary Cast Iron Fabric, a blend of 75% duck cotton and 25% nylon.  The nylon insures incredible durability, the cotton insures comfort and wearability from day one.  The fabric is brushed to our spec for a broken in feel right out of the gate.  We made the fabric in conjunction with Cordura because they are worldwide industry leaders in hard wearing fabrics for military, tactical and workwear applications.
