A rugged twill gets treated to a special twisted yarn to create a completely fresh look. This is the Black Heather Trucker Jacket.
We like when technique is used all the way down to the yarn level to create a unique look. One of our partner mills in Japan did just that. By using multiple yarn colors and twisting them together before weaving, the fabric is transformed. Black and off-white yarns create a special heather effect on a dark base - a very rare heather black you almost never see. The twill base is a perfect pairing for a jacket - a solid but wearable 12 ounces, nicely starched for great wear-in. Classic jacket style with rare Japan fabric technique.
The overall style is inspired by the classic Type III Trucker Jacket. We give it a more tailored body and add a bit of length in the sleeves so it doesn’t ride up. It's designed to hit right at the waistline for a compact look. It has two side entry single welt pockets on the side and double flap pockets up top. Each flap is secured with our custom Gustin hardware. We also enlarged the interior chest pocket so that it can accommodate larger phones or wallets. Another new addition was the chambray lined cuffs and pockets bags, it just adds to the comfort of the garment. Two side buckles on the waist band are secured by custom buttons. Extensive flat felling is used on seams and all pockets are clean finished.
