An iconic jacket worn by the US Navy from the 1930's to the 1940's, the Deck Jumper was a classic piece of utilitarian workwear used for hands-on work in the galley and beyond. With a roomy fit and handsome shawl collar, it’s a versatile piece that looks good both on and off the decks.
We crafted our interpretation of this USN classic from a 10 oz. indigo-dyed selvedge fabric woven in Japan on vintage Imamura looms. A faithful reproduction of a pre-1930s quality, this fabric facilitates a traditional drape and ease of movement whilst aging gracefully. Loaded with nep that provides a grainy pop amongst the deep indigo, this uniquely-textured fabric will fade into a palette of rich blues and chalky whites.
We have customised this deck jumper with hand embroidered Sashiko pockets, all the fabric is traditionally woven Kasuri fabrics from Hiroshima. Sustainably washed at our laundry in the UK.
Each Deck Jumper is hand-made in our Brighton workshop and finished with fully felled seams, authentic change buttons, and indigo-dyed Japanese Kasuri pocket linings.
