Hudson has a ton of history: it's located on land originally owned by the Praying Indians, used to be called Feltonville, and was once home to 17 shoe factories, though most people only seem to remember Andrew and Elisabeth. For notable threads that'll make you look like A Saint, check out Penfield.
Straight outta Hudson since '75, the latest warm-weather drop from these hometown haberdashers includes a solid lineup of classically styled shirts, pants/shorts, and jackets, all designed "for Life in the Open" and inspired by their "Mass roots", which is weird, because ?uestlove is really the only fat one. Up top highlights include the pink/grey horizontal-stripped Sherborn long-sleeve with cat's eye button-down collar; the Barnstable, a burnt orange weatherproof wax cloth day jacket w/ dual button-down chest pockets; and the Watertown, a cotton oxford w/ shaped collar and a chambray placket overlay that always seems to get stuck... waiting for the 70 bus. For protecting/unveiling your winterized legs, there's a blue Selford seersucker/ chambray/ oxford cargo with contrast lining and two on-the-quad button-up front pockets; and a khaki zip-fly utility pant called the Edgartown, though hopefully not because they're super-hard to get into.
For gear on the go, PF rocks a collection of rugged bags like the Oxon tan/ olive canvas satchel with front pocket buckles and leather trim, and a premium mid backpack w/ laptop compartment known as the Duxbury, which is a great town, though no Melrose...Place.
