In the vintage repro game, one garment that’s underrepresented is the light windbreaker. Fortunately, this Burgus Plus Moleskin Drizzler Jacket is filling that gap while adding a refreshing – dare I say – streetwear detail that surely is absent on originals.
Taking design queues from the US in the 1950s, this classic design features 2 hand-warmer pockets and a beautiful slanted check pocket all enclosed in reinforced corrals which make them look patched on. The back is fitted with a clean vent that keeps the air moving and a bell-shaped Universal zipper to keeps things period correct.
The namesake moleskin is created from Giza cotton and has a soft, silk-like luster to it, making it a dream to wear while keeping you worn and cutting out the wind. The jacket is finished off with some fun leopard print on the underside of the collar which adds some boujee flare if popped.
But the best detail for me is one that isn’t really there. Many jackets from this time would have these ribbed/elasticated hems which would create this balloon effect around your waist and wrists if not properly adjusted. This variation with its regular straight hems makes for a more versatile, easy-going look without too much puff or excess.
