Country of Origin: United States
Duck canvas is a rugged pure cotton workwear fabric and one of our most popular options for outerwear. For this special edition, we've dipped a fully constructed Doyle jacket into an indigo dye bath for a deep, dark blue tone and a radical softening of the original cloth. "Old Gold" contrast stitching is used as an accent, and the resulting product gives off a distinct old-school vibe. This Doyle is pre-shrunk and very comfortable from the first wear. The reactive dye process is colorfast, but you'll want to wash this strictly with dark colors for the first few times.
The Doyle is our loving homage to the classic French work jacket. Starting with the minimal and utilitarian shape of the original garment, we upgraded the fit, construction, and fabric to create a versatile piece that can be worn as an all-day smart casual garment. Worn as outerwear or in lieu of a sportcoat, this matches brilliantly to chinos, denim, and trousers.
The Doyle's fit and chest/shoulder ratio is based off the proportions of in-house shirting and Vittorio sportcoats. The typical chore jacket is boxy, but the Doyle is sharply tailored and designed for an athletic physique. Those who own other Epaulet garments will find that the fit on this is complimentary and consistent with our designs.
Two open patch pockets sit at the hip. They're doubled against the body, allowing your hands to use them both from the side and from the top. Hidden brass rivets and heavy stitched bar tacks sit at the corners to reinforce them against heavy use. A single exterior pocket and a long interior pocket sit on either sides of the chest.
The sleeves close with a functional single cuff, and can be unbuttoned and pushed up your forearms. The rear is single vented and the soft top point collar cuts a rakish profile whether open or closed. The buttons are natural corozo nut, dyed a gorgeous brandy tone.
12oz 100% Cotton American Duck Canvas
Descended from classic maritime workwear and sail cloth, duck canvas is a strong plain weave fabric that's beloved for its durability and comfort. With a strong weave structure, it visibly fades and ages with wear, giving it a unique character over time. Our cotton duck is woven in the United States and it's 12oz weight is comfortable through all four seasons. We ordered this cloth with a "soft touch" treatment, giving it a comfortable hand even before the first wash. With further wash and wear, you'll find that this softens even more so than your favorite jeans. This is the absolute best domestic duck canvas that we could source.
