FREEWHEELERS "USN VO-3S" CIVILIAN A-1 WOOL JACKET (OVERSEAS EDITION)

FREEWHEELERS

No one does it better than FW when it comes to creating some of the most serious military style outerwear! Today we would like to introduce you to this "USN VO-3S" Wool A-1 - an exclusive release for the overseas market!

To start, this classic style is inspired by the US NAVY jackets of 1928. Out of their creativity, the Navy men customised their jackets and birthed the SQUADRON design!

Looking over the front waist pockets, you can see the attention to detail FW has to their construction. The strongly curved flaps contrast beautifully against the squared edges.

Now onto the SQUADRON detailing; the front side features vintage machine embroidery. Look at the raised and scattered texture which looks just like a skilfully painted artwork! The backside features a full-width print made with extra thick, crackled ink which gives off a vintage vibe.

The outer shell is made up of a heavyweight wool melton that has been specially developed with a deep, dark navy colourway, that looks like black, being deftly smooth to the touch a single itch. The surface will also develop much less pilling than typical wool jackets thanks to their unique processing.

For extra warmth and comfort, the lining is made of lightweight, silky cotton moleskin which is specially developed by Freewheelers.

A typical detail of USN jackets is the elasticated finishings. This one features a vintage machine, cotton/wool blended woven cuffs, bottom hem and collar. This allows you to maintain warmth and prevent any cold wind from getting in! Perfect for those harsh conditions outdoors.

A style many may have seen but not yet familiar with. This is a chance to try the pinnacle of Japan-made USN inspired gear!
