With an emphasis on contemporary design, the exclusive Penfield Black Bear Collection offers a mix of technical and premium fabrics on classic silhouettes alongside more fashion forward styles.

For Fall/Winter 2012, Penfield have worked with British tweed manufacturers Moon. Founded in 1837 by Abraham Moon, the name has become synonymous with design and innovation throughout the world. Within the Black Bear range, this unique tweed has been used on the all new Sibley hooded down vest and the Landis down duffle jacket.

The Stapleton jacket and vest have been fabricated in a beautifully intricate Japanese navy floral print pattern fabric and a contrasting jet black yoke.

Penfield and CONCRETE invite you to take a closer look at the new Fall/Winter 2012 Black Bear Collection, for a superior take on ‘Life in the Open’.

Description about each jacket, from top left to bottom right.

One of our most celebrated styles, the Stapleton jacket has been re-worked with a premium Japanese navy leaf print fabric and a contrasting tough leather yoke in jet black.
Insulated with our premium 80/20 down for supreme warmth and a 100% cotton shell. Discreet chest and lower pockets allow the navy leaf pattern to remain uninterrupted, whilst the snap down front with inside zip keep you protected.
A popular silhouette reworked with a premium fabric, the Stapleton BB jacket is a stylish but hardwearing choice.

The Outback Camo is a down insulated vest that combines a classic Penfield silhouette with premium but hardwearing camo fabric, for a contemporary design with all the trademark Penfield features.
The Outback Camo has been constructed from printed camo cotton canvas on the top half of the vest and Penfield Hudson Wax on the lower half with a contrasting nappa leather shoulder yoke for added strength and durability. Insulted with our premium 80/20 down, the Outback Camo provides supreme warmth whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable. The front snap closure keeps out the cold.
A chest pocket with branded rivet reinforcement and two lower patch pockets with leather details ensure a high quality finish on a fashion forward but functional style.

We have searched high and low to find an authentic tweed of the highest quality and have sourced Abraham Moon Tweed, manufactured in Yorkshire, the traditional home of the English cloth mills. This traditional fabric has been combined with the smart tailored detailing of the Banks blazer and down insulation, for a unique style that has been beautifully crafted.
The simple button closure includes inside backing buttons, keeping the front of the jacket secure and smart. A concealed button under the lapel, allows for full closure and added protection. Two lower button down pockets and two inside pockets have been finished to the highest of standards with Penfield branded buttons.
The contrast corduroy collar and elbow patches provide added comfort and style, marking the Banks Tweed as a timeless style in an authentic, exceptional fabric.

The Fullerton Suiting jacket combines premium Penfield down with Melton wool and stripe suiting fabric, for a classic tailored feel with all the trademark Penfield functional features.
The Fullerton has been constructed from gray Melton wool on the top half of the jacket, with chalk stripe suiting fabric on the lower half and a contrasting nappa leather shoulder yoke for added strength and durability. Insulted with premium 80/20 down, the Fullerton Suiting ensures supreme warmth whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable.
The Fullerton Suiting has a classic tailored feel, but retains its functionality, making it ideal for the whole season.

Made exclusively available for CONCRETE in the Netherlands, Staple‘s the Reed Space hooked up with our Massachusetts friends at Penfield to create a jacket for Staple‘s 2011 Fall collection, dubbed “the AutoShop Collection“. Going to work on this collab, the lads asked themselves: what is the most iconic driving jacket known to man? Some would argue it’s the Schott Perfecto Motorcycle Jacket. What if Penfield had a lovechild with this jacket? What would it look like? We think it would look as cool as the Perfecto, but perform and protect like a Penfield. Water-resistent nylon, premium leather appliqués, nickel silver zipper and snaps. And a dope fire engine red lining inspired by the Craftsman Toolbox seen in every mechanic’s garage.

Available now exclusively at CONCRETE, get them while they last. Good chance these will be gone in 60 seconds.

CONCRETE‘s friends at Penfield have just delivered their last drop of this year, a few familiar styles and a few new. Check out below for more info on which styles and colors. But don’t hesitate because there is a good chance that if you miss these, you’re heading towards a very cold winter.

A heavyweight expedition parka with a generous 360 grams of 550 fill power 80/20 down, the Hoosac excels in extreme conditions. Made up in our hardwearing 60/40 cotton nylon and available in a 70’s inspired Cobalt Blue color, the parka is both water-resistant and windproof.

The detachable and fully adjustable coyote fur hood, combined with an internal waist cinch, allows you to customize the fit and feel of your parka providing maximum comfort and performance in wind, rain and snow. A zip and button up front with fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets ensure that you stay cozy and dry when the temperature drops.

High quality details such as leather cord pullers and the classic Penfield leather arm patch make this well-known style unique and stylish.

A shorter jacket perfect for when style and warmth are essential, the Rockwool’s design features understated yet functional details. Its easy-to-wear profile makes the Rockwool a great option for cold days on the trail or frosty evenings in the city.

Designed for cold weather environments, the tough 60/40 cotton nylon outer fabric is insulated with our premium 80/20 down. The jacket has a genuine shearling collar which keeps the warmth in and the wind out.

A leather shoulder yoke and leather trim around the cuffs provides added durability, while snaps on the front of the jacket keep it securely fastened. Two simple patch pockets offer storage space and a safe haven for cold hands.

One of our most celebrated styles the Rockford and the Stapleton jacket are constructed with an 80/20 down fill providing additional warmth for the winter season.

This winter’s Stapleton has been updated with a zip on the center front that, combined with tough metal snaps, provides improved shelter from the elements. Lower hand-warmer pockets are angled for better hand placement with arrowheads reinforcing the corners.

The leather shoulder yoke gives the jacket added strength and durability, a distinctive Penfield feature on a rugged style.

An instantly recognizable Penfield style, the Rockford is a lightweight and versatile alternative to the expedition parka, this style has been updated this season with a soft corduroy collar to provide added comfort.

Two snap closure chest pockets keep essential items safe, while the fleece-lined bottom pockets are perfectly positioned to keep your hands warm. The tough nylon outer fabric and authentic plaid shoulder yoke ensure that this piece stays true to its roots in the great outdoors.

Remodeled to compliment the women’s silhouette, the Rockford and the Stapleton are true Penfield originals.

All of the above models are available at CONCRETE as of now.

As of NOW available exclusively for the whole of the Netherlands at CONCRETE, is Penfield’s latest collaborative effort. This time around the men from Massachusetts have joined combined their forces with Scottish Shetland wool manufacturers of: Jamieson

As a family owned business which has specialized in wool from the native Shetland sheep for five generations, the Jamieson’s were among the first to harness computerized knitting technology alongside the traditional spinning stages of grading, scouring and dyeing fleece before color blending, twisting and balling their 100% pure Shetland yarn.

This combination allows the highly complex traditional Fair Isle patterns to be re-created in an increasing range of both traditional and vibrant contemporary colors.

The Gillman jacket comes in navy for the ladies and black for the gents with six antique copper snap placket, premium 80/20 down, leather trimmed cuffs and the Jamieson’s 100% Shetland wool featuring on the shoulder yoke and pockets.

Get these while they last and as stated above, CONCRETE will be the only dealer of these jackets for the Netherlands. Once their gone, they won’t be coming back.
