Inspired by rugged menswear from the 1930’s, this super-cool
windcheater is designed for medium weight fabrics with a
firm or crisp hand...think twill, heavy poplin, or glazed cotton.
Relaxed-fit, hip length lined windcheater has a front yoke,
pleated patch pockets with flaps, and one front zipper welt pocket.
Jacket has an interior drawstring at the waist; the paneled hood
has a drawstring run through eyelets with leather toggle detail.
Two-piece sleeves finish with a gusseted cuff; front closes with
a zipper & snap-closed band.
Tonal or contrast top-stitching is totally optional, but really,
why wouldn’t you?
This tough-as-nails jacket works with a classic T-shirt and 5-pocket jean,
a relaxed chino or a cargo pant; make it for the rugged man in your
life, and bring back the rugged life in your man!
