Inspired by late 40s British motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Explorator” Army Waxed Canvas Jacket represents an authentic garment made of 100% Cotton Waxed Canvas Desert Tumbled 14,7 Oz by Halley Stevensons, one of the oldest waxed cotton mill in the world (since 1864 in Dundee, Scotland).
The Waxed Canvas Desert Tumbled 14,7 Oz by Halley Stevensons provided an extraordinary layer of protection against any bad weather condition: wind, rain and mud. As the name suggests, Desert is a dry wax finish. The fabric has been through a tumbling process which softens the firm handle and gives the distressed worn appearance with unique vintage aesthetic.
The lining is made of a special Bergamo Map 100% cotton. An Original ancient Map of Bergamo Territory from 17th century found in an old archive, and brought back to life on Cotton. Crafted in Italy in the Como Lake district, the Bergamo Map Cotton Lining has been created to guide the explorers during their trips hunting for unforgettable places and moments, in a nutshell, looking for the Shangri-La.
The collar-tab closes the neck to keep you warm during winter and cold trips.
The attention to detail makes it a rare and authentic Waxed Jacket Hand Made in Italy.
Designed for Seekers, Explorers and Gentlemen.
Every Jacket comes in a high quality 100% organic natural cotton Bag, laced with havana rope and with screen printed logo.
