The best pieces from CWST at East Dane

If you are not already crazy inspired by this sleek and cool label, you are about to be. CWST has risen as the improved, higher quality counterpart of Riviera Club. The creative masterminds behind some of the coolest West Coast inspired pieces this season are Joe Sadler and Derek Buse. The duo famously creates effortless luxury and, what is more, every single CWST garment is produced in the USA. CWST carries a refined, yet low-key vibe into fall and manages to accomplish a very difficult task – producing stylish, yet warm and comfortable clothing. Here is a taste of their best work this season.

Carl’s Shirt

This brushed cotton shirt incorporates the fun, whimsical side of fashion in a really cool way. A slight wink to the side of baseball jerseys is what makes this casual shirt interesting and new. Feeling confident and effortless is what you get with the contrast sleeves, relaxed fit and scoop neckline.

Tactical Vest

CWST has extended the contrasted theme into their woven cotton shell vest. There is probably not a single garment more suited to the days of fall when summer is still lingering and you can’t decide if you should pile on the layers or keep it minimal. The vest is insulated and will fit right into the casual part of your closet.

Vista Pants

Chino has officially been taken to another level with this contemporary pant. The garment’s top block is relaxed and super comfortable, even though the fit is slim. The bottom is where the real surprise comes in – cropped legs with elastic cuffs make the pant perfect for any awesome shoe or sneaker.

Center Slub Thermal Pullover

Did you know that thermal pullovers could look like they’ve just come off the runway? CWST has designed what could possibly be one of the year’s most stylish garments to keep you warm. The layered slub jersey fabric has been molded into waves, to keep you close to the ocean even in the coldest of days.

Talk about a hybrid between luxury and relaxed style! The CWST cotton, wool and linen topcoat embodies the idea of top notch outerwear, without a hint of stiffness.  The three-button front is perfectly combined with the textured weave to create a Pacific inspired coat for the laid back guy.

Kennedy Cardigan

The reverse French terry fabric has once again been incorporated into the cool style of CWST. The textile gives an unexpected twist to a beloved classic cut and the olive green color is a subtle look-at-me approach. The cardigan zips in the front and the fit is slim.
