For our most recent release we have teamed up with our friends Manready Mercantile out of Houston, Texas. As an early adopter of the brand Knickerbocker and an avid supporter of our community as a whole, we could not be happier to shake hands and bring this together.
We started with inspiration from the adorned "French Blues" chore coat. For silhouette, we took Knickerbocker's service chore coat, an item based loosely off that of the USMC N-3 Utility Fatigue coats. For authenticity sake we hit up our friends in Japan for yardage on their shuttle loomed, PFD (prepared for dye), herringbone cotton twill. A twill almost identical in comparison to that of the French & USMC coats. For the buttons we brought in the iconic laurel wreath, single star, tack buttons, which were prominently used throughout USMC wear as a symbol of good luck. Once everything is in, we move to assembly.
