#NotOldyButGoldy

Vintage is *FIELD JACKET*

Iconic piece of the nonconformist scene in the overwhelming golden-age between the ’60s and ’70s.

Initially adopted by U.S. troops in the fierce Vietnam War, it was reshaped in its visual paradigm: from military equipment to a nonconformist item, a symbol of rebellion for the politicized intellectuals of the time.

It entered right into the common imagination through numerous characters belonging to Hollywood cult cinema and the music scene of the time. How to forget the crossed arms of a smirking De Niro in Taxi Driver, the tormented Rambo played by Sylvester Stallone and again Al Pacino as the irreducible Frank Serpico in a historical film of ’73.

Moreover, it was significant the imprint given by the music during those harsh times. Just like the unforgettable image of a controversial, almost humorous “U.S. ARMY” printed on John Lennon’s military green jacket – who became a medal of pacifist value in the era of hippy marches in front of the American congress. The Field Jacket has gone through history, right up to the costume of our times.

Versatile jacket: with concealed hood in the collar, 4 large gusseted pockets, adjustable windproof cuffs. But also resistant: made with comfortable and durable materials, with padding for the cold season or unlined and lighter for the summer. In perfect harmony with urban dynamism, essential and functional thanks to its construction and technical features, in its elegance made of simplicity. A stylistic evergreen, indispensable.
