So back in 1804, a frenchman named Joseph Marie Jacquard invented a device that, when attached to a loom, makes it a whole lot easier to incorporate unlimited varieties of pattern weaving. Hence, the Knit Jacquard Snap CPO. We took one of our most classic jacket forms and incorporated a modern weld-quilted poly/spandex marled knit face with sandwiched polyfill insulation, a breathable tricot polyester backing, a drawcord shirt tail body, and voila! Yes, you caught us, it’s not truly a jacquard due to the welding vs. knitting of the diamond shaped cells. But the result will keep you nice and warm without excessive weight. We even lined the back cape with our yard-dyed cotton seersucker flannel for added personality. All stress points have been reinforced with nylon/cotton peached taslan as demonstrated by our concealed black oxidized snap placket front and deep utility chest pocket. We’re confident Joseph would have approved.
