Hailing from Kojima, Okayama, The Strike Gold was established by the Hamamoto family, who have spent over a decade on the quest for perfection in production and sourcing the highest quality raw materials available. Known for its unique textures and fabric composition, The Strike Gold has become known as one of Japan’s foremost jeans makers. But don’t be fooled, these master crafts-people are not just restricted to denim, but anything the brand turns their hands to exemplifies that same dedication and steadfast search for quality.
In this instance, we’ve got the Military Melton Jacket with a 100% melton wool outer. Providing high thermal insulation and a level of water/wind resistance, it exhibits a clean nautical-inspired silhouette, shawl collar, and all. The simplicity of its style and slim fit silhouette also allows the fabric to do the talking; the wool outer has been napped and closely sheared resulting in a smooth texture and felt-like handle.
So if you’re looking for outerwear that’s going to keep you warm in the colder temps, with a pinch of heritage and a punch of contemporary Japanese styling, you might want to check this one out.
