Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket
Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket
(Based on 6 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, use a traditional quilting technique called "trapunto" to add the detailing at the shoulders and yoke of this jacket. In trapunto, decorative patterns are sewn with lightweight batting to add texture without bulk. The artisans who make this jacket create the pattern freehand as they guide the garment through a treadle-operated sewing machine. Light enough to wear as a shirt or a jacket, it multiplies your travel wardrobe and helps you pack light. Hip length, with side welt pockets, turn-back cuffs, flattering princess seams, and an adjustable tie back.

Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

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.

Leather A-2 Flight Jacket
Leather A-2 Flight Jacket
(Based on 15 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
National Geographic performed an important service during World War II as we supplied maps to the Allies. Maps were often sewn in to the lining of the A-2 flight jackets in case the pilots were shot down over enemy territory. This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity. Features include some of the customizations that pilots preferred, such as the wind flap, front zipper with storm flap, hidden snap-down collar points, knit cuffs and waistband, and flap-top and side-entry pockets. Imported.

Emerald Silk Reversible Wrap Jacket
Emerald Silk Reversible Wrap Jacket
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

Intricately hand-tie-dyed textiles (called bandhani or bandhej) are a specialty of Gujarat in western India. Fabrics are pinched, pulled, and wrapped with thread before being dyed, creating patterns where the thread resists the color. Some of the best bandhani is found in Gujarat wedding saris. The vivid emerald and teal hues of this reversible, lightly quilted silk wrap jacket are the result of hours of dyeing to achieve the brightest possible colors. Please accept variations in the hand-dyed fabric.
