Jelado Smokey Joe Stadium Jacket Deep Navy x WhiteJelado
Here we have the long-awaited Stadium Jacket/Varsity Jacket from Jelado in an absolute classic colour combination.
The history of the Stadium/Varsity jacket is deep rooted and can be traced back to the 1860's at Harvard University where students would sew an 'H' onto their sweatshirts, though these later became known as Letterman Sweatshirts. It wasn't probably until the early 1930's that the Stadium/Varsity Jackets that we know today (wool body, leather arms, sometimes with lettering) were formed. These were introduced in response to a demand for sturdier clothing that could keep athletes warm.
The Smokey Joe from Jelado comes in plain form with no patches or branding, making it an instant classic. The body of the Smokey Joe is cut from a soft melton wool sourced from the Bishu region in Japan (famed for textile and wool weaving production) coming in at 90% wool & 10% nylon. The original stubby yarn of the fabric has merino fluff running throughout to give the wool body a 'hairy' handle, similar to vintage pieces.
The sleeves are cut from cowhide, known for its grainy texture and easy-wearing qualities. Cowhide tends to be quite a soft leather so it allows for ease of wear and added comfort here. The leather has a white top coat that will age well over time, while the slash pockets feature a cowhide trim. A snap button front and ribbed cuffs and hem with contrasting white detail have been paired with a small collar with the same detailing present. Fully lined with a soft and silky smooth cupro, the Smokey Joe is complete with Jelado's athletic brand label.

*After the UK’s recent departure from the European Union, there has been an unavoidable upheaval in all trade.
To help ease the confusion, we use a shipping partner to assist us with all international shipments, which allows us to show you, upfront, all costs before delivery including duties and customs know as DDP (Delivery Duty Paid).
