Channeling the popular A-1 style bomber jacket popularized by the military, CCC, and laborers in the 1920s-1930s, De Bonne Facture is resurrecting this timeless design for the world to see.
The Corduroy University Jacket in Dark Brown features a button front, knit collar, cuffs, & hem, and two spacious front pockets, providing everything you need and nothing more. And if you need more, that’s on you, not the jacket. But apart from the classic look, what really allows this jacket to shine are the updated materials.
Made using 100% cotton 10 oz. 8 wale corduroy in a luscious dark brown, the jacket lays on the luxury without forgetting its roots. Although associated with fancier apparel today, corduroy’s origins are firmly functional with workmen and hunters alike having gravitated towards the fabric for generations. The buttons, made from genuine horn, and the knit sections made of extra fine merino wool round off the upscale iteration.
So, whether you’ve never been within 100 feet of a university or are pursuing your PhD in heritage style, this jacket is the bridge.
Made in France and available for $625 from Division Road Inc.
