Built on the foundations of traditional workwear, vintage military uniforms and outdoor gear, Wallace & Barnes is a collection of pieces we love (from the obscure to the iconic), evolved into a limited-edition range of essentials we feel no guy should be without. We fashioned this lightweight bomber after the traditional U.S. Navy deck jackets worn by assault and support boat crews during WWII. True to the original, it's tailored from Bedford cord, a durable cotton fabric characterized by very small corduroy-like ridges (it was often used for naval jackets from the 1920s to the '40s). Finished with ribbed knit trim and a heavy wash one thing's for certain—it looks as great today as it did 70 years ago.
Due to the nature of this jacket's construction, we recommend ordering one size up from your usual J.Crew size.
