The famous N-1 Deck jacket is the pinnacle of USN gears for so many Made in Japan brand collectors. FW may be the only one who truly takes it to the top level. Each season they strive to bring it to a new level. This season, we would love to show this Dark Khaki Beige colourway!

Specially developed by FW, the outer shell's jungle cloth deck fabric is so unique! It's densely woven using vintage machines and has a substantial feeling, unlike other brands whose deck fabric feels more flimsy and loose. It's skillfully coated with a waxy finish that not only provides water and windproof seal, it also creates a smoother surface and will maintain over time, much longer than cheaper versions. The yarn-dyed colourway will gradually reveal soft contrast with time, even more, exaggerated than those classic photos you see of those USN gentlemen standing on deck in the cold weather.

The inner lining is another step above the standard. Made using a blend of sheep and alpaca wool, the lining is soft like cashmere and gentle on your skin without the typical irritation you'd get from other brands. They've also re-inforced this lining with heavy cotton interlining for increased durability and weather resistance.

Constructed with a double fastened storm flap, you'll always be in control of your body temp with the heavy urea buttons and vintage Waldes style zip. The cuffs feature the iconic ribbed openings, made from vintage knitting machines to keep the wind out of your sleeves without feeling uncomfortably tight. To regulate your inner temp, the underarms feature metal eyelets.

Flip-up the collar for a USN look with the 'V' stitching details. If you've been waiting for that top-level N-1, this is it!
