Outfit of the Month (March 2016)
John Gluckow Submariner's Coat: First issued by the US Navy in the 1930's and later replaced by the iconic N1, these jackets were made in very limited quantities. This production of this jacket was very minimal due to being pretty much issued exclusively for Submarine Personnel. Originally a double cloth herringbone was sourced for construction of these jackets purely because it was easily available before WWII. John Gluckow has reproduced this coat to a very high spec. The unique characteristics of the indigo corduroy will become more apparent as the coat has years of wear to it. It also features a fully alpaca lined inner. Made in Japan.
Jelado Thermal top: Available in Orange and Navy and ideally used as a thermal top, Jelado have produced a lovely piece with great detailing. Typically based on a waffle knit design it features a raw edge finish and begins life very snug but relaxes very easily with wear.
Spellbound 48-231E Chambray: A classic piece. A beautifully designed and crafted shirt featuring triple stitch detailing, selvedge finish complete with a chain stitch run off. Also features a unique pocket design.
Spellbound 43-588 Jean: Constructed from 13.75oz denim and selvedge detailing, Spellbound offer a great fit here! Loose on top with quite a nice taper to it this is the perfect spring jean and looks great with a pair of boots or a sneaker.
Red Wing 3141 Chukka: Unlike most Red Wing styles, the Chukka was designed primarily for indoor work. Rugged in heritage and casual in appearance, the 3141 Chukka features Red Wing's classic Atlas Tred polyurethane outsole, premium Briar Slick Oil and goodyears construction makes for the perfect lightweight yet durable boot.
