Freewheelers "Winter Combat Jacket" Civillian Model (Khaki)

Gear up for the winter offensive with Freewheelers' Combat Civilian Jacket!

This jacket is inspired by 1940s civilian Military-inspired winter jackets, recreated by Freewheelers with a modern elegant fit. Returning WWII would wear this jacket as a nod to their previous wartime experience and in addition, it was highly popular with motorcycle riders of the period. Some may recognise this style as the iconic 'tanker' jacket worn by Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver!

Freewheelers have chosen a medium-weight yarn-dyed chino fabric for the shell. This tightly-woven fabric has been slowly woven using vintage machines to give a subtly irregular texture. With time this will age to a soulful look! The inner lining is constructed with long-fibre yarn-dyed Melton wool providing excellent heat retention and keeping you comfy and cosy during the winter season! Olive drab wool knitting fabric has been used for the collar trim, waist and sleeve openings. The slightly elastic fabric is amazing at keeping the wind out and is soft on the skin like some finest cashmere!

Construction-wise Freewheelers have executed some of the cleanest stitch work we have ever seen! Twin chest pockets have been reinforced with bar tack stitching to ensure durability over long-term use. The large-size front zipper and placket flap keep you insulated from the harsh weather and helps keep out the cold wind! The back pleats provide a full range of movement and comfort while keeping an elegant slim silhouette!

If you are looking for a classic winter jacket, inspired by an iconic 20th-century military-inspired design, Freewheelers 'Combat Civilian Jacket could be the perfect one!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:
