The Dispatch Jacket | Khaki CordTaylor Stitch
The trucker jacket has steadily evolved over the years, but we’ve always admired pre-1960s iterations (characterized by prominent pleats along the front). Rather than spending the foreseeable future scouring vintage shops for the perfect fit, we decided to revive this classic silhouette in the form of The Dispatch Jacket. We ditched the oversized patch pockets for a more streamlined look and added some hand-warmer pockets for the sake of versatility, but The Dispatch makes no secret of its old-school roots. Thankfully, time has been kind to this one.
This 100% organic cotton corduroy weighs in at 9-oz.—burly enough for chilly days, but not so heavy that it’ll weigh you down when it’s time to get a move on. We’ve garment dyed The Dispatch to imbue it with some rich, nuanced coloring, and while enhancing its classic corduroy texture with a wash. In addition to the hand-warmer pockets, we’ve added some two interior pockets (à la The Long Haul Jacket) to store your essentials, and we’ve finished the package off with some sharp tin tack buttons.
