The Vanson PIPER JACKET is a varsity-styled mens jacket combining a wax cotton body with leather sleeves. Cuffs and waistband are self-edge knit. This textile jacket is lightweight, easy to wear and incredibly comfortable.
The self-edge knit waistband and cuffs use a single ply, so they are not folded, heavy or bulky. The result is a light and elegant elasticity that enhances the fit and comfort of the jacket. Self-edge waistbands are made one at a time, by hand in Minnesota. Knitted flat on a slow machine, watched over by an experienced operator, controlled by punch-card type paper tapes, each piece is a little different from the next one. In contrast, modern knitting is done on ultra-fast circular, robotic machines which can spit out so many thousands of parts that the completed knit is sold by the pound.
The waxed cotton body and the cotton plaid lining allow the jacket to breathe, keeping you from getting sweaty or clammy. We all know how a modern textile jacket can get damp inside from your natural perspiration - and can then become uncomfortably cold. The combination of materials used in the Vanson PIPER JACKET will not get damp or cold because the materials breathe. At the same time. the waxed cotton is water-resistant. These are some of the great advantages of waxed cotton that you will experience wearing a Vanson PIPER JACKET.
Lightweight, easy to wear, water-resistant, breathable, year-round comfort brought forward from the past with classic materials in a modern metro jacket available only from Vanson.
