*UPDATE to the pre-order situation...
we got the pre-orders to make this
one viable so we're good to go!
We're shipping the first of these pre-ordered
patterns early November...so get those
cutting shears sharpened! *
Inspired by rugged menswear from the 1930’s, this super-cool
windcheater is designed for medium weight fabrics with a
firm or crisp hand...think twill, heavy poplin, or glazed cotton.
Relaxed-fit, hip length lined windcheater has a front yoke,
pleated patch pockets with flaps, and one front zipper welt pocket.
Jacket has an interior drawstring at the waist; the paneled hood
has a drawstring run through eyelets with leather toggle detail.
Two-piece sleeves finish with a gusseted cuff; front closes with
a zipper & snap-closed band.
Tonal or contrast top-stitching is totally optional, but really,
why wouldn’t you?
This tough-as-nails jacket works with a classic T-shirt and 5-pocket jean,
a relaxed chino or a cargo pant; make it for the rugged man in your
life, and bring back the rugged life in your man!
This would be a great pattern if you could make it unisex or options for women. Here in California, this would work great for a year round jacket or modified with a collar for a barn jacket. Please!
I love it, I would love to see one designed to fit women. Any chance on that?
My windcheater will also become my "raincheater" with the rain wear fabric. Timing is everything as I left a review earlier stating how nice it would be to have a outdoor / rain coat pattern. This should do it! Keep designing!
This is going to be a great coat - I want one!! Perfect for our soggy winters in the Pacific Northwest. AND I can make my sleeve long enough.
Terrific details on this jacket -- think Barbour and William Powell rainwear/outerwear. Very Hunky.
