The Dawson x Cerrone vest is a versatile piece that draws influence from the North American camping boom of the 60s and 70s. Think Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, The Deerhunter, Trail Mix, Winnebagos, Ford Broncos — escaping to the open wilderness in a simpler time. We wanted to create something that balanced this inspiration with our lived experiences in the sartorial world, and our creative process led us to take the waistcoat silhouette championed in Savile Row and splice it with the functional vests worn by campers, hikers, and fishermen in the 60s and 70s.
We chose to produce two different make-ups for the Dawson x Cerrone Vest. First up - the rinsed double indigo twill. This inky rendition of this multi-pocket vest comes with tonal buttons and a contrasting hit of our stalwart hand-woven indigo kasuri fabric in the gussets.
Both vests are constructed with a multi-pocket silhouette and come with a tonal reinforcing shoulder patch, hand-dyed British Corozo buttons, and a custom Dawson x Cerrone club patch. We designed this exclusive patch in-house with the same amateur-drawn naivety that is so often seen on mid-century souvenir and members' patches for an authentic and nostalgic touch.
A medium is made to fit a 38" chest.
