The D-43 may have been conspicuous by its absence for a little while, but we are excited to announce its return as part of Collection Three, 2020. The original version, as you may recall, was made from a heavyweight waxed cotton, giving the military silhouette a sense of rugged, countrified utility. For this latest iteration, we have tracked down a fabric that’s a little more trans-seasonal than the original’s heavy cloth, and a touch more unusual, too.
In place of the typical waxed cotton, we have sourced a lesser-spotted waxed linen. Waxed cotton is usually a pleasingly textured affair, but with this linen variant that is doubly true. Retaining all of the lovely irregularities that typify a standard linen cloth, the added waxed finish creates an unparalleled patina that will only improve with age and wear.
