Created in our Toynbee Street workshop, just a few minutes from this shop, the vest is made from 100% recycled, repurposed materials. The autumn colours of the outer body is made from dead stock, American-made workwear pieces whilst the lining if made from a vintage, selvedge edge, indigo overdye cotton. The outer is heavy duck canvas which has a water repellent finish.
This design features two large front pockets and one large utility pocket on the back, all of which feature a western style pocket flap as a nod to the materials origins. The large back pocket and front pocket flaps are made from vintage Japanese Kimono fabrics. The materials we have used are full of history and have now become something new, so you can make your own history whilst wearing it!
All of our Soldier Blue range is designed and made in our London studio using vintage, hard working, heavy duty, no nonsense machines.”
