FOCUS: HAVEN SS’19 Military Outerwear

Feature

Our latest Focus takes a closer look at two pieces of military inspired outwear from the HAVEN SS19 collection: the Flak Bomber Jacket, and the Tactical Jacket. Military garments are closely examined for their undecorated functionality and complex and articulated detailing garnered from decades of field use and research and development. These details are modified and applied to garments created for the variable urban environment. Both jackets are made in Japan and make use of premium fabrics, ensuring precision construction, extreme attention to detail, and the utmost quality.

 

Inspired the US Air Force SRU-21/P survival vest from the Vietnam War Era. Re-interpreted into a liner jacket and modernized with a lightweight washed cotton/nylon ripstop. Custom YKK Excella® zippers are utilized throughout and pockets are made in tonal cotton/nylon grosgrain for subtle contrast. The six pocket configuration with hidden internal separation pockets and zip fastening provides abundant functional utility. Finishing the jacket is a woven mil-spec HAVEN label at hem.

Bomber Jacket in a wind and water resistant nylon twill. Inspired by the Vietnam era second pattern USMC M-55 Fragmentation Vest and re-interpreted into a modern jacket. YKK EXCELLA® with custom HAVEN pull front closure. A snap button storm flap with interior grosgrain taping conceals the front zipper and provides additional weather protection and also allows the jacket to be worn partially buttoned in warmer conditions. Two large bellows pockets at the front in tonal contrast cotton/nylon grosgrain with snap flap compartment and side entry. The interior features a single welt pocket and lightweight nylon ripstop lining. The hem is reenforced with durable military webbing with metal eyelets. Finished with ribbed knit cuffs and signature woven brand label.
