Sugar Cane is showing Lee some love with its 13 oz Brown Duck Work Coat. To the untrained eye, this might look like a fun modern-day spin on the an old work coat but you’d be wrong. No, it’s definitely a work coat, but this isn’t a spin at all. Dizzy yet? Because it isn’t just a new take on the 1930s-1950s-ish Lee 91-J which was made from denim but an exacting repro of the lesser-known Lee 92-J, its canvas cousin.
Featuring a sturdy sulfur-dyed brown duck material, you can look forward to some great weathering as this Leepro makes its way into the ‘your favorite jacket category’. But with this cotton duck weighing in at 13 oz, you’re definitely going to have to work at it. No problem though, with a clean, timeless shape and plenty of old-school details to help you look the part, we both know it’s doing you a favor by letting you wear it.
From stamped buttons and strategically placed pockets, including one for your grandad’s pocket watch fob, stand out from the sea of Carhartt-core with a spoonful of Sugar…Cane.
Available at Hinoya for $204
