This beauty here is the Double Front Butterfly Jacket from Tender. As with everything from this lot, the amount of thought that’s gone into this thing is staggering. Shape-wise, it’s an inventive take on the classic work jacket, with the fabric folded over on the front to make it double-layered. This is pretty hard to explain in words, but it means that the pockets are built straight into the side-seams, and don’t need ‘pocket bags’, and the front is kept clean and uncluttered. Very clever.
And then there’s the fabric… it’s a woven twill made up of both cotton and a humble fibre known as jute. This gives it a real old time feel missing from most contemporary clobber. Slightly… er… ropey, but in a good way.
Other good details include those fancy rivets and them mother of pearl buttons which we’ve been staring at for the last seven hours.
