The prized piece, sure to be talk of the Pacific North East and beyond, is the FACING EAST Flyer’s Jacket. With a design inspired by military flight jackets of the mid-to-late 20th century, this jacket uses a fabric that not only puts a new spin on the military-driven silhouette but celebrates Native American heritage in a beautifully bold way.
The custom blanket pattern speaks for itself, designed by Ginew and Dyani White Hawk, and made in Native America – Portland, Oregon from 32 oz wool fabric woven by Pendleton Woolen Mills. The Dehen-made backdrop features a genuine mouton collar, front welt pockets with snap closures, and heavy-duty wool cuffs and trims. So yeah, not only will you be ready for whatever nature throws at you, you’ll look good during it.
But perhaps the most impressive detail isn’t on the jacket itself but something it stands for. Ginew + Dehen 1920 are teaming up with The Skatepark Project, Portugal. The Man, and PTM Foundation to support access for youth and community members to the skatepark on the Warm Springs Reservation in Central Oregon, and pledge to donate 20% of retails sales from this jacket to the Warm Springs Skatepark.
