It’s ok to admit that you almost bought a white quilted nylon jacket after watching Drive for the first time. Well listen here, Gosling, this ain’t Hollywood and this jacket sure as hell ain’t nylon — it’s the new Tiger Denim Quilted Jacket by Jelado.
Combining styles from classic car coats and military bombers, the outer “shell” of this jacket is made with a 15oz. raw selvedge denim that takes on the appearance of an old school nylon jacket, while secretly giving you more fade potentials than you can even handle. They didn’t stop there either — the inners are stuffed with cotton for added warmth and sealed tight with Thinsulate’s nylon camo lining, which is both wind breaking and water resistant. You know, just in case the ribbed cuffs and collar fail to keep you bundled.
The two large waist pockets work well as hand warmers too, and they topped it all off with a little Vietnam war era souvenir tiger embroidery on the breast. Don’t bother grabbing a toothpick, this jacket has enough style for thirty drivers.
Available for $552 at Corlection.
