Taking design cues from WWI US Marine Corps uniforms, our Daly Jacket was inspired by Sergeant Major Daniel Daly of the USMC, who, before a charge against the Germans in WWI, famously stirred the courage of his men by yelling, “Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?”
We’ve made this jacket in a quilted indigo, blanket-backed fabric from Kuroki Mills, and rinsed it once for texture. This jacket is made by hand in a small-scale family workshop in Northern Italy.
Fabric: Indigo-dyed, quilted fabric from Kuroki Mills (Japan) / Blanket-backed / Rinsed once for texture / 100% Cotton
Features: Four front patch pockets with flap closure / Visible fifth ticket pocket / Mandarin collar with storm closure / "Action" back with half belt and inverted box pleat for full range of motion / Front button closure / Horn buttons
Care: Hand wash cold and hang dry (do not machine dry), or dry clean. This garment is indigo-dyed and will fade with time and use. You may experience some dye transfer. Avoid contact with light-colored clothing or furniture.
Sizing: Sizing for this piece is European. Subtract 10 from European size to get approximate US size (e.g. 50 EU = 40 US).
