KATO BLADE MOLESKIN JACKET, COYOTE
This variant is currently sold out
Moleskin has its earliest origins in medieval Europe, where the fabric was first made to be used by farmers and hunters who needed clothing that was comfortable, warm, durable, and wind resistant. Moleskin has been used periodically ever since, most notably in the French Army jackets of the 40’s and 50’s, and in shirts and jackets in the 70’s. Moleskin is a fabric that is rarely seen today and is not widely available.
Kato brought back this fabric, which is highly sought after by vintage collectors. Not satisfied by merely reproducing this vintage material, in true Kato form, made a few subtle adjustments to further improve durability, comfort, and finish. The thread count and density of the fabric was increased to improve durability. This higher tension also gives the finish of the Moleskin a deeper luster that will enhance the unique aging qualities of this jacket.
Bold and ready to be worn, the Blade denim jacket is inspired by your traditional denim jacket silhouette (1930’s era denim jackets).
Model is 6'2" and wearing a size M.
Made in USA
