Frog button closures. Slightly padded shoulders for structure.


Made in China. 65% linen, 35% poly. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Dry clean.

The Miao are one of the 55 officially recognized cultural minority groups in China, although the Chinese term encompasses many unrelated nations such as the Hmong and A-Hmao. The Miao have traditionally lived in been isolated, rural communities, but with China’s industrial expansion has reached Miao regions like Guangxi and Guangdong.


Many Miao subgroups are known for their colorful clothing, elaborately decorated with embroidery and brocade. In fact, the Chinese government’s name for various Miao subgroups refers to the predominant color and pattern of the women’s clothing, including red, blue, and black Miao, as well as big flowery and small flowery Miao. They are also renowned for their ornate silver jewelry, sometimes wearing more than 30 pounds worth of necklaces, hair ornaments, bracelets, and more at one time during festivals.

Our colorful, lightweight jacket is made in one of these studios. Tie-dyed by hand, each jacket is unique, with hand-embroidered paisley patterns on the front and one large paisley motif on the back. Paisley patterns, based on a stylized mango leaf, have been popular ever since merchant sea captains began bringing Indian textiles back to Europe and the U.S. in the 1700s. Two front patch pockets, fully lined.

    Shalimar Garden Paisley Jacket
    (Based on 4 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

    The swirling pattern of paisley—in Farsi called boteh, the word for a young flower or palm leaf—evolved from a traditional Kashmiri design. The Silk Road brought Kashmiri shawls to Europe where they became wildly popular. The Scottish mill that was first able to re-create the intricate design was in Paisley, Scotland, and gave the pattern its English name. This lightweight, 100% cotton, open-front jacket is made in India with an allover paisley pattern and hand-beaded accents. The greens, blues, reds, and pinks evoke the flowers in Kashmir's Shalimar Garden, built by 17th-century Mughal emperor Jahangir and famous for its nightly fountain displays.

    Being prepared for travel in changeable climates doesn’t have to mean bringing twice the gear. Our water-resistant, blazer-style jacket is perfect from Seattle to São Paulo. Its ability to shrug off wet weather is due to the tight weave of the fabric, not a surface waterproofing treatment, so it remains effective even after years of wear. Four exterior patch pockets, two hand pockets, interior zip pocket, and interior MP3 pocket with an earphone pass-through slot help you keep a ton of travel essentials within reach. Button cuffs customize the fit.

    Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
    This authentic B-3 jacket became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket in 1934, and it is still the warmest and most insulating bomber jacket made. Aviators in WWII bombers came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew their missions over Europe in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. Our B-3 is made from an amazingly soft and supple genuine sheepskin with a classic, aged look and deep-pile natural shearling along the body, sleeves, and collar. With double straps under the collar and straps at the waist that cinch to adjust the fit and keep out wind. Traditional leather welted seams and side-entry pockets are authentic details from the original. Made in U.S.A.

Topiary-lined avenues exist alongside the emperor's baroque private garden. This double-faced boiled wool jacket is designed with the same traditionally Austrian combination of elegance and exuberance. The classic Austrian cut emphasizes a design heritage as refined as the garden's formal walkways, while scrolling velvet trim along the collar, hem, and sleeves adds a playful spark to a sophisticated style.
