Soundman Wilson Jacket NavySoundman
Continuing to be inspired by vintage wears, this SS22 sees Soundman utilise exacting fabrics with inspired design.
Forming part of our first SS22 offering from Soundman we have their newly introduced 'Wilson' Jacket, with inspiration for the piece coming from the Royal Navy Ventile Windproof Deck Smock. This particular pattern of Smock was first introduced in the 1960's for members of the Royal Navy serving on the decks of Aircraft Carriers and similar. Originally cut from ventile, which is known for its weatherproof qualities, this smock featured a number of unique and interesting design details and is now a rich piece of British Militaria.
Cut in Japan from a high density cotton poplin, the Wilson jacket comes in a classic navy colour-way for the season. With a natural water repellency, the Wilson is packed with a plethora of details inspired by original issue Royal Navy Smocks. The oversized hood with snap button peak and buckle size adjuster with drawstring has been paired with the button flap closure that can be buttoned across for heat retention or buttoned back for ease of wear.
Originally, the snap button front placket was used to hold any communications cables for headsets of microphones to the wearer's body and to stop them snagging on anything, but here add a nice nod to the original garment. A zip front has been paired with two slash pockets while the snap button flap pocket and sloping raglan sleeves give the Wilson a touch of practicality. Button cuff adjusters complete the look.
