Our Paletot get its moniker from old school French slang and a nod to the Apache gang roaming around Paris in the early 1900s.
This jacket is inspired by early French garb mixed with work coats and outdoor jackets to create an elegant yet rugged garment.
For this iteration of our Paletot Apache we developed a heavy cotton moleskin, the French choice of workwear and outdoor fabric since the 1800’s. We developed our moleskin from a 1900s swatch from the MF® Archive. This fabric is guaranteed to develop an attractive patina over time.
