Knickerbocker is proud to present you with our latest editorial, which showcases our first series of products in The Cutting Room. For this editorial we got some of our inspiration from the dock workers or longshoremen who worked the piers from San Francisco to New York. They would enjoy the charm of working in the warmer months on the water, but the depravation of comfort in colder months always loomed over them. To perpetuate such working conditions they were in need of utilitarian gear that provided warmth.
Stay warm and in style this autumn & winter with our Dock Coat and accompanied by our Watch Cap, Cash Shirts & Service Chino.
Cash Shirt - A classic camp shirt silhouette, without the improper fit. This tailored work fit shirt features a single piece notch collar, which can be worn flat or buttoned to the top. We fell in love with this item for its versatility; with a soft 10 Oz. brushed broken twill wool you may comfortably wear it over a tee or use it as an over-shirt for when you wearing a couple of layers underneath in the colder months. Detailed with a locker loop for hanging up and side vents for comfort at the waist.
Dock Coat - Inspired from the William M. Brown's beach jacket, this beautiful design stands the test of time. From 1901 to today, this style of jacket was a trusty companion to much of the workforce at the turn of the 20th century as an all-weather garment. Our version comes in a dense 24 Oz. melton wool, guaranteed to get you through the coldest of days, and is detailed in KMFG brass snap buttons.
Service Chino - These 1940's military inspired chinos come in a straight-leg fit and are made out of a 8 Oz. cotton twill for comfort & toughness. The Service Chino is detailed with slanted welt waist pockets, back welt waist pockets with button closure & a flap on the back right pocket, a coin pocket on the right waist, and a locker loop for hanging up.
