Design Notes: The Correspondent Jacket

A new style for SS17, the Correspondent Jacket is an evolution of our Photographer's Jacket - shortened for the warmer months. Oli sees the Correspondent Jacket as an alternative to our signature bomber jacket. This new style features the same cropped finish, and close fit of our classic bomber shape, with distinctive large pockets and an oversized feel through the sleeves.

Combining fashion with function throughout, the Correspondent is available in both navy and forest green versions of our water resistant Lingen fabric. The jacket also features side pockets inserted into the side seam, allowing you to keep your hands warm in case of a chilly spring breeze and for a minimalist feel when not being used. Although the oversized sleeves are part of the look, a closer fit can be achieved through adjustable sleeve cuffs if desired.

The Correspondent jacket was featured both on the catwalk and in our SS17 campaign, the 3D pockets making a statement while the classic forest green colour kept things casual. This was one of Oli's favourites and a garment he took through many rounds of design iterations to achieve exactly the look and fit he had in mind.
