The Sack Jacket is our take on the archetypal workwear coverall. One of our earliest jacket silhouettes, we’ve updated the fit by trimming unnecessary room in the chest and sleeves, resulting in something that slots into the modern wardrobe whilst referencing workwear of yesteryear.
This rendition of our Sack Jacket is made from 13 oz. hank-dyed selvedge denim, woven in Japan on 1920s Imamura looms. Hank dyeing is a special, time-consuming dyeing technique where cotton yarns are repeatedly dipped into indigo over a number of days to maximise colour penetration. The resulting denim has a soft hand, steely blue tone, and ages like no other.
Each Sack Jacket is made in our Brighton workshop and finished with Reese 101 buttonholes, custom diecast buttons, a canvas Dawson-branded label, and a unique spectacle button hole on the front placket.
