The ultimate fabric combination - impossibly rugged and velvety soft. This incredible moleskin has it. When paired with our CPO you get vintage military styling with tremendous wearability.
This moleskin is truly the best of both worlds. Moleskin is a workwear fabric at its core, designed to be incredibly dense and durable. Just like previous moleskins we've used, this version has a substantial 10 ounce weight and an impossibly dense weave. You can feel the sturdiness of this jacket the moment you pick it up. However, unlike our previous moleskins, the touch of this version is surprising. It is pure luxury. It feels like a cross between velvet and felt. The almost peach-like surface is one of the softest we've experienced. It's really the contrast of the weight and density with the suppleness that's so special.
Each starts with great attention to construction details. Significant flat felling is used throughout, from side-seams to shoulders to sleeves, for a clean finish and added toughness. The front placket, cuffs, collar, yoke and interior map pocket all receive lining using a blue cotton chambray. This gives the garment subtle shadow and contrast. Small side gussets are sewn into the side hems, also from blue cotton/linen chambray, and secured with two bartacks. There are two symmetrical front chest pockets and a single pocket on the left sleeve that gives you a nice place to stash small items. Inside, you get a large side entry pocket from blue chambray. All flap pockets, cuffs and front are secured with aged brass snaps.
The fit is designed to be tailored while still accommodating light weight items underneath. The length is longer than our button downs. We recommend selecting the same size in our CPO as you wear in our jackets. You can size up if you like to layer with thick garments underneath.
