THE WENLOCK JACKET.
The Wenlock Jacket is a meeting of minds between ourselves and London based independent label Collective Noun.
Taking name and inspiration from The Wenlock Arms public house in North London and the nearby Regents Canal, this classic style windbreaker jacket follows on from our last three cagoule releases (the Beat a Storm) and takes lead and inspiration from that traditional outdoor style. This premium version is a real passion project as you'll see in the video below, every aspect is made in England.
The outer is made from water resistant, breathable poly microfiber (from Lancashire) with Airtex lining (from Stockport). This features two hand-warmer pockets and a handy top slash pocket for your phone, cash and your Oyster card/Mega Rider. Featuring original style flat twill drawstring cords and hard sourced traditional bell style toggles. In keeping with the old school hiking theme, the sleeve patch features a narrowboat on the canal, which cuts through the ever-changing cityscape of central- East London.
The Wenlock Arms, built in 1835, is a survivor of the wartime bombing of the area and is a renowned cask ale public house. This has been named North London Pub of the Year by the local CAMRA branch on four occasions since it reopened in 1994.
Limited to 100 pieces (50 per colour) each hand numbered. Available Mon 25 Aug 7pm TC
