Freewheelers Winter Deck Jacket (Overseas Edition)

Size Guide
The pinnacle of deck jackets for your deep winter comfort!

This style is famous among vintage collectors as one of the most sought after USN deck jacket models from around 1930~. This style was worn by USN staff for the ultimate protection at sea!

For that outer shell, FW has used their signature heavyweight jungle cloth. It's densely woven from cotton fibres and has been paraffin treated for weatherproofing. With long term wear, you'll gradually see a more vintage tone reveal itself as the thread dyed navy colour fades. This is the best jungle cloth we've come across, no joke! The inner lining is made up of a long-fibred alpaca pile, which is seriously warm! To add even more weather protection, there's a thick layer of cotton flannel fabric in between the shell and the inner lining.

With curved front pockets, your hands will stay cosy and dry at all times! With many reinforcement stitches and extra heavy cotton threads used for the construction, this is perfect for daily wear and heavy weather conditions. The large-sized vintage style front zip is typical for this style and keeps the wind out. The collar, cuffs and bottom hem all feature vintage machine knit ribbing that will keep you warm and stay comfortable against the skin.

If you're after some of the best outerwear for the winter season, this is it! No doubt, a serious piece for your collection.
