A Weekend Away in Goshen, NY

The Art of Getting Out of the City

A Weekend Away in Goshen, NY

The Onsloe Team - October 31, 2020

A Weekend Away in Goshen, NY

This Summer, when we were putting the final touches on what would become our Fall & Winter arrivals, we were also scouting out where we would be photographing them. More importantly, we asked ourselves what story are we trying to tell? This collection of fabrics and styles were designed, in large part, looking beyond our current landscape — both politically and culturally. Followers of our brand know that we believe in style that transcends trends and tribulations — classic (for lack of a better word) and yet, entirely modern. Through all of this, it was apparent that we were coming to the same conclusion: we all yearned to just get out of town — anywhere.  

A two-hour drive northwest of New York City will bring you to the little town of Goshen, NY, just at the foot of the Catskills. Our good friend, Ana Hito, runs an organic farm and stand, selling their harvest alongside locally-made (often by Hito herself) provisions and ceramics, among other items. Her foodtruck maintains a nearly permanent position at the stand, feeding city-dwellers passing through, chasing the changing leaves throughout the rolling hills and valleys of upstate. Hito also runs the coveted It’s A Dinner series — a collaborative dinner series curated by Hito herself using produce directly sourced from the farm and surrounding area. 

"All the while, our designs — our first for the Fall & Winter season — felt entirely right. They made sense with our adventure and they made sense for our current time — something for everyone. Flannels, wool unstructured suit coats, chinos with a slightly heavier weight, selvedge denim jacket and pant and a stunningly beautiful peacoat. It’s evident now in hindsight that our longing to get out of the city and into the country influenced this season’s curations."

Naturally, we appreciate impeccable food and thought-inducing wines, so it made perfect sense to use Hito’s Goshen Green Farm as the backdrop to our photoshoot. But more than that, after receiving Hito’s blessings, it became more than work, but truly a work-as-you-play getaway and the one we all sorely needed. 

After an afternoon of location scouting, Hito set us up in one of the old yet charming homes on the 200-acre property informally called “The Green House.” After an hour or two of unpacking and going over the weekend agenda, we drove down the street to Hito’s barn where she hosts the It’s A Dinner series. Extravagantly executed with an innate understanding of hospitality, we found ourselves sufficiently relieved of our modern day worries and in their absence, filled with a true sense of clarity that one seeks when “getting away.” The wine certainly aided in this regard.

Many have covered the topic of “getting away,” including many other menswear or lifestyle brands. And that’s okay. This excursion wasn’t about redefining its definition or viewing it from an alternate angle — it developed as naturally and organically as the food we were served. Over the course of the weekend, we strolled through empty fields of brown grass and through wooded trails. We sat together outside in the cool, autumnal mornings over a seemingly limitless amount of coffee. We didn’t hurry — we moved at our own pace. Caleb, Garvey and Nick, who are the subjects seen in these photographs, were particularly amused. 

Our friend from L.A., Max — alongside Hito — smoked several briskets overnight for our final dinner and to sell at Hito’s food truck. We slept really well in a home so quiet that its creaking bones in the October wind were the only audible utterances aside from the hiss of the furnaces. We spent some time at Hito’s personal home on the final day, watching as the leaves really began to turn — many already coming to rest on the forest floor. All the while, our designs — our first for the Fall & Winter season — felt entirely right. They made sense with our adventure and they made sense for our current time — something for everyone.

Flannels, wool unstructured suit coats, chinos with a slightly heavier weight, selvedge denim jacket and pant and a stunningly beautiful peacoat. It’s evident now in hindsight that our longing to get out of the city and into the country influenced this season’s curations. Sometimes it just works out that way. We’re excited to debut these garments with you. We hope these curations, these looks you see, inspire you as well.
