3sixteen‘s Mechanic Jacket in Black Boiled Wool is a lightweight wool affair that is way too refined to live up to its namesake. Seriously, don’t wear boiled wool whilst working on your car or motorcycle. But if you’re after a highly textured Moto-inspired jacket with a vintage cut, 3sixteen has an investment piece that needs your attention.
They boiled this Japan-milled wool al dente enabling it to resist the wind, so even if you do end up changing a tire in the cold, you’re covered. Made in California, details include metal button closure on the chest flap pockets and cuffs, a two-way gunmetal zipper on the front placket, two hand warming pockets on the front you can throw your frosty mitts in, and two huge interior pockets for your gloves/chapstick/spanner.
Available for $440 at Self Edge
