The 'Summer Nights' flannel collection is made exclusively for us by Dickie's 1922, in Fort Worth TX.
We designed this mini capsule collection in the interest of having a stylish extra layer for the cooling that occurs in the evening as summer starts closing out. We chose the colour schemes based on the palettes you'll see in and around Calgary during these times.
We wanted a colourful flannel option that showcased the stunning colours you see of the sun setting down over Calgary's skyline and the city's surrounding mountain range. From that, we found this beautiful Japanese plaid twill flannel who's peach base is elevated with a shining gold, sky blue, a spread of cream and a touch of the incoming darkness of nighttime with some black. We named this one 'Foothills Sunset'. Hope the inspiration shines through.
Shown here is what we decided to call "Prairie Dusk". A demure black ground plaid flannel that incorporates burnt orange, light tan, and a dusky olive/brown. Just imagine the campfire surrounded by rocks, trees and good friends just as the sun drops below the horizon.
With summer slowly fading to fall, these colours become even more prominent, and these flannels should help ease the transition into the colder weather.
