While we’re still thinking about the States, this jacket does have something of an ivy feel to it, too. As with the D-43 ‘Sport’ jacket we featured last week, which nodded to those classic 60/40 mountain parkas of old, this has that rugged midcentury sensibility that ran alongside the more tailored looks we associate with the ‘50s and ‘60s. But, as mentioned, it’s not all California dreamin’. Being a British company, we like to root many of our designs in things that feel familiar or specific to us. Our recent campaign shoot was defined by an English country aesthetic, one which carries through to many of the products available as part of the collection. The Zip Fleece Jacket, while giving off a laid-back, sun-kissed vibe, also feels at home amidst the damp British countryside, and would be perfect for trudging across the Fens, or venturing into the Brecon Beacons.
With a nicely relaxed fit and a drawstring hem, the silhouette of this jacket speaks to an earlier time, too. It’s sporty in a classic sense, and will more than earn its place in your wardrobe.
