Vessel Jacket - High Density Cotton - Navy - first pattern
We at office hours have an interesting relationship with technical fabrics. Not always buying into the mantra of "newer is better" we're often skeptical of modern technical fabrics and their beauty and longevity long term.
When we met with the folks at 1st PAT-RN we had our eyes opened regarding looking at modern fabrics that could be made to not only perform better, but also look and wear better over time. The Vessel jacket may be the perfect illustration of this.
Made with a new knit fabric developed by the Numajiri Textile Laboratory in Tokyo, which features an extremely compact jersey structure that is suitable for all seasons – known as “high-density” jersey – the blazer also features a complete reconstruction of its interior and uses advanced stitches (4DS) invented by Maruwa to reduce the thickness of the seams. The result reflects traditional Vittorio Veneto style, inspired by the classic dark blue blazer from Ivy League tradition and the official uniforms of the Italian Navy, updated in a new version that represents the creative journey of 1ST PAT-RN for the SS19 season.
The Vessel Blazer might be the perfect example of "tailoring" we want to wear in our new world.
