Freenote Cloth Riders Jacket Waxed Canvas Tobacco


The Riders Jacket, or RJ-1 for short, was one of the first jackets Freenote ever designed. It's a timeless garment built for the open road with durable waxed canvas, custom metal hardware, and the most beautiful Navajo-inspired lining we have ever seen.

It is a unique mix of a classic ranch jacket and a riding jacket. The front pleats expand with movement along with the shoulder gussets in the back. Construction highlights include 1/8" stitch details and custom metal hardware made exclusively for Freenote Cloth. The RJ-1 is equipped with the brand's signature action back for added mobility. Hidden elastic bands in the interior of the jacket help keep the shoulder gussets in place and allow for ease of movement in this heavy piece. In addition, the sleeves are lined with a cotton/rayon blend to make the jacket easier to put on and take off.

Freenote built this jacket for the long haul using the most resilient materials and durable construction methods. With each wear, it will get more comfortable as it moulds to your body, creating a custom fit. It will develop a unique patina as the wax is displaced in high-wear areas, a sartorial chronicle of the adventures you'll have in it. Like everything they make at Freenote Cloth, the Riders Jacket is built to last.

Freenote Cloth is the project of three brothers based in San Juan Capistrano, California, obsessed with producing garments made in the US with top-notch fabrics sourced from Japan and the highest level of craftsmanship. The brand encompasses its strong roots in Americana and quality garments long lost from the western American frontier.
