Outwears | Dark Green Gabardine Cotton Jacket
Colour | Dark Green
Here is a minimal and functional casual jacket that is both simple to wear and interesting to behold. We chose a dark green cotton gabardine which was created as an alternative to the heavy woollen overcoats worn in WWII trenches. It is lightweight, strong and shower proof obtaining a coated feel without losing any breathability. Gabardine cottons went from being used in war to being used in sport, especially fishing as a fishing hook would never get caught in the fibres of the fabric unlike a wool.
This jacket, then, has undertones of the active and the adventurous which demands a certain practicality. The covered front pockets are protected by a pleat much like a storm pocket does and the jacket waistband is elasticated in two small sections on either side to achieve greater movement.
The black lip mother of pearl buttons lift the jacket into a more refined and elegant place.
