In case you missed it, English denim purveyors Dawson Denim bolstered their roster this year by adding a collection of women’s clothing that is made to the same exacting standards that have seen the brand become a mainstay in the denim world. I’m lucky enough to have been able to visit the Dawson team at their ‘garage‘ in Brighton, England, and it’s safe to say these guys know exactly what they’re doing, and exactly how they want their products to look, feel, and age.
The aforementioned high standards of fabric selection, garment design, and construction are why it took Dawson a while to perfect their womenswear offerings, and this is evident in the women’s version of its Wabash Sack Jacket, a classic utilitarian jacket with a roomy fit and even roomier bucket-shaped pockets.
Made from 11 oz. Indigo-dyed printed wabash twill from Okayama, Japan, this sack of goodness is full of texture and character from the off. It’s sewn up using vintage machines from the 1950s which can achieve period-correct features like Reese 101 buttonholes and chain stitching and finished with Japanese herringbone pocket linings, a selvedge locker loop, custom die cast buttons, and a branded canvas label.
Available for $385 from Dawson Denim
