This is the Trophy Clothing reinterpretation of the Royal Navy 1942 smock jacket, a recognise classic, timeless military garment.
The UK Royal Navy developed this jacket in 1942. It was served essentially as a wind breaking and showerproof layer that could be worn in any number of climates. It was used by Special Forces & military units around the world. It hasn’t got a lining, but that doesn't mean it misses out on any of the critical features of an Arktis jacket. The most important thing about this jacket was the layers that could be worn under it.
The Trophy Clothing version is simply amazing thanks to the amazing quality of the fabric and the details. It is a fine performer for hot climates and with the right layers, cold climates too. The fabric is made from hardy 50/50 Ripstop, which is one of the toughest fabrics on the market. In the event your smock does get a tear or hole, the special cross-weave design prevents it from spreading. It also had two large breast pockets and two skirt pockets.
The jacket is very lightweight and the fabric has an outdoor shell technical aspect. It is made of twilled finish of sulfur dyed cotton nylon blended yarn. It is Windproof and waterproof so it´s the perfect jacket for rainy or windy days.
With durability as the prime objective and under the slogan of “Satisfaction Guaranteed”, the garments produced by Trophy Clothing are made from resilient materials and each one of their elements, from the fabrics to the very last button, are made in Japan according to Japanese artisan textile tradition. Trophy Clothing follows no fashions; it only aims for timeless pieces that will last the highest possible number of years.
