Made by hand in a small factory in Portland, OR that has been crafting jackets for over 50 years, each bomber is made with the utmost attention to detail using the best materials I could find.
Constructed out of an inky 13.5 oz Kaihara crosshatch raw denim, the body will age and fade beautifully with wear, while the sleeves are a gutsy 10 oz black waxed canvas, lined in quilted satin, which will contrast with the body nicely as the denim patinas. I also opted to line the body in a charcoal 100% Melton wool. The jacket is toasty, while still maintaining a sleek varsity silhouette. Other details include:
-100% wool cuffs and trim woven on 80+ year-old German knitting machines
-Black coated solid brass hardware
-Buttery black leather pocket welts
-Interior pocket with vegetable tanned leather detail
-Chainstitch embroidered “Unwashed Denim” on neckline
-Hidden “XVII” wool label on inner placket
Very limited quantities.
