Today we have a new installment from one of our favorite mills in Japan that specializes in repro vintage military inspired fabrics. This time a vintage US Navy style gets treated to our iconic 5 Pocket style to combine history with current day usability. These are the US Navy Repro Kersey 5 Pockets.
Strong and wearable. A style built for true utility, durability and work. These characteristics defined the hardwearing twills used by the US Navy and served as the goal for this special mill in Japan when it created this style. Special techniques were deployed to achieve a very unique character. The highly defined and domed twill line is achieved by a using a kersey construction, a weave that dates back to medieval England, where it was typically found in course, rugged fabrications. You can see and feel this definition. It's dense and tight. The feel is surprisingly luxurious and flowing. This balance creates a strong style that's usable daily. A heavy singeing process yields an extra smooth surface. Finally, the colors are rich and classic. Vintage inspiration you can actually wear and enjoy today.
