Freewheelers "USN Ground Crew Jacket" Civilian Model
Freewheelers’ gear is always ready for hard work, whether it be ground, sky, or sea! Proving it again, here they bring us the "USN Ground Crew Jacket" Civilian Model!
Drawing inspiration from a rare, lesser-seen jacket design found around the end of WW2, Freewheelers remain unparalleled in borrowing and updating classic designs with their striking twist. The Construction Battalion division of the US Navy was primarily responsible for the building of defensive structures, such as roads and bases, and that spirit is infused throughout this jacket.
Here FW uses a specially developed heavyweight cotton chino drill, their version of duck canvas as the outer shell; with the inner lining and sleeves in a two-layer structure - perfect for keeping you warm and dry in the event of a little rain. Thick stitching and thread are used across the garment, in particular on the outer cotton drill, making it durable and with wear will develop a stunning patina.
The lining inside the body and down the sleeves is an astonishingly soft alpaca and sheep wool blend, with the ribbed sleeves and hem of the jacket comprised of sheep’s wool. The collar is made of extra-thick sheep’s wool pile as well, and double-flocked for double warmth and softness!
Of course, the Freewheelers details that jump from every nook and cranny, the high-quality black zipper on the front, the soft flannel inners for the hand-pockets and the collar clasp for keeping your neck warm!
Stay defended from the outside elements with Freewheelers!
