In 2004 inspired by the books and letters of Hunter S Thompson most notably “Fear and Loathing in America: The Brutal Odyssey of an Outlaw Journalist 1968–1976″
Six Eight Seven Six developed a collection which would reference but modernise classic American workwear styles; utilising & developing these garments with new details, trims and producing them in unique & progressive hybrid technical fabrics.
One of these styles was the Thompson jacket which we have decided to produce again as part of our Scotland Project. The garment has been sourced and produced within a 25 mile radius on the East Coast of Scotland.
Fabric : “Dry Wax” Herringbone 100% cotton from Dundee’s Halley Stevenson & produced at the Seahawk factory in Glenrothes. Corozo buttons custom made in the UK by Courtney & Co.
