Short Field Jacket
(6.25oz 100% American Waxed Cotton)
Crafted in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
Short Field Jacket is a classic outdoor blouson with functional details and authentic style. The length of this jacket hangs around upper hip. Hem is finished with wool ribbing fabric and it makes the jacket fit you better. The ribbing fabric is knitted from 100% wool yarn. Wool yarn ribs are traditionally used for military flight jackets back in old days. Our cuff ribbing has a special function called “flair”, in which the wale of ribbing gets wider toward edge, allowing more stretch for sleeve ends while keeping snug fit at your wrist. Short Field Jacket has a great stitching construction as top stitching is nicely done all over – shoulder, armhole, yoke, collar, hem, cuffs and pockets. The outer pockets are versatile with an extra panel added, which makes two separate comportments; one is an opening for the top and the other is a zipper closure pocket. The collar consists of a nicely-finished stand, which helps the collar to be rolled nicely. V-shape back yoke is a nice detail to add a design twist to the back. Inner is fully lined with a pocket on the left front. All snap fasteners are DOT brand which is manufactured by Scovill; a company with a long standing reputation for quality, value, and performance. Snap closures are sometimes called "Dot buttons" because Scovill originally popularized snaps with the "DOT" brand name.
Waxed cotton is most often used in hunting and fishing clothing and is practically water and wind proof. There are a couple of manufactures that produce waxed cotton, but the one used for our Short Field Jacket is domestically-produced American waxed cotton. It goes through a unique process to apply wax on fabric. Wax is impregnated into yarn with a special technique (this technique is a company top secret that has been passed down from generation to generation). Waxed cotton fabric treated with this special technique has much less wax migration problem without sacrificing its functionality. Waxed cotton is perfect classic outdoor fabric. Wax can be reapplied after yeas of use or hand cleaning. The more you take care of the wax cotton fabric, the appearance of the wax cotton fabric will be more nicely aged and you can enjoy the aging process over years.
