Doug McCombs- Swiss Army Blanket Jacket

In anticipation of the uniform project, here’s a peek at Doug McCombs’ Swiss Army Blanket Jacket. Those of you who know Doug or who have seen his piece for the Vietnam project know that he has an encyclopedic knowledge of early 20th century workwear. This jacket builds on that tradition and that of old hunting jackets. It’s unstructured and unlined, but made from a very dense and durable Swiss Army blanket.  Built for use and built to last, and a very smart way to re-use less-than-perfect blankets and army surplus. Thanks to Doug again for sharing his knowledge of men’s wear with me.
