If you ever wondered what would happen if Georges Seurat ever collab’d on a jacket, I’d say the Dehen 1920 Winston Jacket in Camouflage Tweed gives us a great idea of what it would look like. Wild that was not my first Seurat ref, but let’s move on.
Taking the silhouette from the classic G-1 bomber jacket or its lesser-known predecessor, the M-422A (shout out all the nerds who unfortunately know the difference) this spin-off went with a fabric-fueled facelift. We’re talking a super-specific camo tweed, made from a wool blend. And before I hear any of you saying ‘actually, I don’t see any frog, tiger,’ or whatever the heck other zoo animal-inspired camo pattern you can come up with, all they mean here is a pleasing blend of various color yarns mixed with a grey base. The result of which is a truly unique pallet of classically used colors that actually manages to stay low-key and super wearable.
Made in Portland, Oregon, it’s fitted with a mouton collar, 100% worsted wool trim, corozo buttons all over, and an opposite-of-itchy satin lining, making it as comfy as it is cool. If you’re not a leather jacket guy but always like the silhouette of the G-1, look no further.
