This Spellbound piece is inspired by a 1948 Parka version of the iconic M-43 US army jacket. The M-1943 served primarily as a wind-breaking layer that could be worn in any number of climates. Unlike its predecessor, the G.I.’s needs were considered during its design. More pockets, more versatility and the most important thing: the layers that could be worn under it.
This outer layer meant to fit over any number of other pieces of clothing. It is made with 9.5oz Yokohama high quality custom-made Japanese denim from the Fatigue Cloth Series. It features a significant amount of details such as the high-quality white contrast stitching, brown cowhide leather patches, two raised chest pockets, an adjustable hem and hood with elasticated drawcord and storm collar.
The Spellbound brand was founded in Kojima, in Japan's Okayama Prefecture, the place of residence of a large number of Japanese denim craftsmen. They have been making garments since 1981 under the slogan of "manufactured with the highest standards and craftsmanship".
