Freewheelers "Field Cruiser" Jacket (Red Brown)
Another outdoorsman classic from FW's BUBO sub-brand!
This season FW introduces us to something rare! This comes from the 50s~ when the USA AIR FORCE was introducing one of their most iconic styles, the CRUISER JACKET.
This outer shell is authentically American in appearance but truly British. This British Millerain fabric is a vintage machine woven and finished with a specially developed oil treatment that results in a supple 'calfskin' like feeling and rainproof characteristics like technical fabrics. This means that being with wear, you'll see some beautiful patina. The creased areas will become lighter and areas of wear will darken. For the inner lining, a 'hunting duck' camo patterned style nylon fabric, it'll keep you cosy and allow for easy movement.
Made using vintage sewing machines the construction is super skilful. Take a look at the curved pockets and intricate details on the shoulder pocket. For the ultimate durability, the zips are vintage standard 'WALDES'. For added contrast, polished wooden buttons have been used for the secured details. The ribbed collar, sleeves and bottom hem are made using vintage knitting machines, which time they'll hold their original shape and keep you warm.
If you're a fan of classic US ARMY AIR FORCE gears, this is an icon worth enjoying for life!
