Crafted from a high-quality extra heavy Melton wool fabric, this military-style jacket has the soft and smooth felted surface that is significant for Melton fabric. It is thick and super-warm, due to having been well fulled, which gives it a felt-like smooth surface. It is napped and very closely sheared. It features two waist pockets, a shawl collar, contrast buttons and piping construction.
We have tested this jacket in freezing temperatures, and we can ensure you that the thermal insulation and wind-resistance properties are outstanding. It is a must-have item for winter that matches any style with a tight silhouette.
ABOUT MENTON WOOL
There’s denim, there’s selvedge denim. There’s leather, there’s shell cordovan leather. There’s wool, and then, there’s Melton Wool. When it comes to woollen cloth, Melton wool is most amongst the most robust and sought after. Due to its thick, dense weave, Melton wool is often deployed on archetypal naval garments.
Melton wool is a cloth made of wool that’s woven in a twill form. Typically thick and rigid with a fuzzy surface, Melton wool is often used to make more robust, substantial products like outerwear and blankets.
Because of its dense, quasi-felted texture, Melton wool frays minimally or not at all. As well as being super warm, it also has water-wicking properties and is fairly wind-resistant, making it the most weatherproof of all woollen cloth.
The Strike Gold is undoubtedly one of the benchmark brands when we speak of Japanese denim. Established in Kojima, in Okayama Prefecture, the Hamamoto family has been focusing all its efforts for more than 10 years on producing denim, sweatshirts, shirts and belts of the very highest quality one can find today. Their denim fabrics, unique in the world for their texture, composition, incredible irregularity, stiffness, roughness and character, delight denim devotees around the planet.
