Like the classic USN N-1 deck coat but prefer the look of a vest jacket? Iron Heart has an answer your calls with its Alpaca Lined N1 Deck Vest, now available in ‘Superblack’ whipcord. This Japan-made take on the timeless USN staple, created for the Navy in WWII, will keep your core toasty while giving you the chance to flex your—well, arms I guess—but also your, lighter outerwear and shirts. I can see it now… flannels and N1 vests. Time to layer up!
The vest features all the fixings like a long pile alpaca lining, over-spec’d two-way YKK zipper with a buttoned placket, and “d” pockets. So if you want to honor the N-1 while breaking away from tradition and don’t want to wait for the short sleeve version to come out, you’re welcome Iron Heart, this is a no s̶l̶e̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ brainer.
