CL's Advice: Our indigo jungle cloth Blouson de Quart is pre-shrunk, and true to size. I wear a comfortable 38 in this coat, with room for a denim jacket or wool sweater underneath. Please note that I am wearing a Fletcher L/S T-shirt, a chambray Patrol Shirt, a CPO Shirt 189ac and a Cowboy Jacket on the fit pic. Toasty.
This fabric will develop attractive patina over time, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear and laundering choices.
Here is a popular classic pattern we have been playing with for years: the USN Deck Jacket, aka N-1.
Our version is not a period replica, but rather our twist on several vintage Government-issued foul weather jackets. Freely mix-matching models and types from the US Navy and Marine Nationale (French Navy) of the 1940’s through 1960’s.
We have made use of indigo jungle cloth in the past, and this time we really wanted a darker shade of indigo for the Anniversary event. We made a special request to the textile experts at Sugar Cane Co and, as always, they delivered.
Made from high quality (period mil-specs) fabrics, our deck jacket is solid and quite warm, as they were originally intended to be, to keep sailors protected from the cold and damp marine air while on deck duty.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
