It’s got to be useful and it’s got to look good…

Good material will last and so will style.

The roots of our Railway Jacket lie deep in post WW2 Japan workwear. Designed to balance function and durability for long hours spent working on the tracks or driving the trains, the original Japan Railway Work  Jacket was focused in its form – something we admire and appreciate. We have a 1970s vintage example in our archive.

Our design is paired down but keeps the spirit of smart utility, cut and sewn from a light but durable 8oz Herringbone twill cloth rather than the poly cotton of the originals.

Herringbone twill fabric was widely used by the US military for uniforms in the WW2 era and looked great doing it.

Like denim, it fades beautifully with wear, washing and age. The weave, with its zig-zags like the bones of a herring, has a fantastic texture and will become more visible as the jacket ages.
