Functional and cutting-edge, they combine traditional silhouettes with modern performance fabrics to produce some of the most ingenious clothing on the market. We’ve chosen to take a closer look at three of our favourite pieces from their Spring/Summer 2013 collection to find out what really makes them stand out.
Not just for rainy days, the 65/35 Cruiser jacket has a concealed pack-away hood and plenty of utilitarian pockets, making this the perfect jacket for everyday. Made from a lightweight, yet durable, poly/cotton Bayhead cloth, the rounded collar and heritage-inspired details of the jacket add depth to its remarkable technical aspects.
This season’s interpretation of their classic Cruiser jacket comes in a subtle black watch pattern with a waterproof GORE-TEX layer and taped seams to keep you warm and dry. Ideal for stormy spring days, the Cruiser jacket wicks away water with ease, while staying breathable and comfortable at the same time.
The innovative GORE-TEX Field jacket comes in a lightweight indigo linen with a waterproof GORE-TEX layer and taped seams. With a notched lapel that can be buttoned all the way up with a detachable neck tab, this versatile blazer can be made appropriate for any occasion, and the tailored cut belies its exceptional wind and waterproof properties.
