Thompson Jacket Navy
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.
Fabric : "Dry Wax" Herringbone 100% cotton from Dundee's Halley Stevenson
Inspired by our 1910 patent for waterproofing textiles, this finish is a combination of our driest wax and soft aero tumbling. This emulsified wax finish is perfect for lightweight breathable and weather repellent garments. It can be used unlined and will offer a soft aged appearance, keeping all the character of natural cotton. This fabric is washable, line dried and light iron. This Flyweight military herringbone is made with organic cotton and finished with dry wax. It is rain resistant has a cool handle and will have a slight patina overtime.
