Since our launch we have been asked when we are doing a women’s jacket. This has always something that we’ve wanted to do and we have finally got our first prototype created. However, we wanted to create a jacket that could be worn by anyone, focusing more on how the wearer styles it than how it looks on the hanger or whether it was a men’s jacket or a women’s jacket.
We have stuck to our design principles making sure we create something that lasts both in terms of quality and style. Using UK made sustainable waxed cotton fabric from British Millerain and design elements taken from our other garments we feel we’ve created a garment that fits perfectly with our existing pieces.
As always we’ve incorporated some cycle specific features such as HiVis fastening on the cuffs, HiVis tab on the back plus some side seam zips meaning, despite the length, it’s still very much a cycle jacket at heart. This is all coupled with the durable weather resistant waxed cotton.
We’ll be showcasing a complete range of pictures in a few weeks after our customer feedback session next week so watch this space. Here are some of the details that have already made it into the sample…
Waxed Cotton, YKK Zips, Bias Binding finishing the seams, splashes of Yellow waxed cotton adding some lovely details.
