Back in the day there were jackets…nice jackets…great jackets. The Vanson 4015 is a Legendary Great Jacket. Great Jackets back then were like great jackets are today - they are all about details, materials used and design. Great Jackets from different periods are recognizable for what they are. Something about them quietly shines through time and summons your attention.
In the best practices of its time, the Vanson CLASSIC is designed with redundant and mutually supporting systems in key areas. For example, the sleeves close with both a wrist zipper and a snap tab to make sure the zipper pull stays in the locked position. The underside of the wrist zipper also has a leather guard to keep the zipper away from the skin. At the end of the leather sleeve is a leather bead carefully topstitched around the cuff. The leather bead has a raw edge for low bulk and greater comfort.
Redundant comfort is also evident with the two-way zipper and the leather snap-tab just below the neckline. Like the tab at the wrists, this top-of-the-zipper tab provides extra security - when closed, the tab holds the zipper pull in the locked position. To keep the wind out, there’s a full length windflap behind the front zipper and a two-way snap-close mandarin collar.
Running up the sleeves over the shoulder and into the collar neckline are two contrasting but subtle stripes of leather. Handmade embroidered Vanson ovals are on each shoulder. The effect is understated elegance.
Inside, the Vanson CLASSIC JACKET is fully-finished with two large inside wallet-pockets built into large curved leather facings running up the center front. The full lining is protected from stress and wear by lower facings built across the inside bottom of the jacket.
Three zippered pockets and an applied patch cigarette pocket complement the front. The total pocket count is five - a lot by any standard.
Great Jackets from the period have slender lines. The clean full-length, two-piece back is a luxurious use of material, true to the concept of build quality. The Vanson CLASSIC, like all period “Great Jackets”, is not made for slouching about with your hands jammed into pockets. That was and still is a posture for guys in unsophisticated, unremarkable regular jackets, not gentlemen in a “Great Jacket” such as the Vanson CLASSIC. . . .
