Womens Washed Denim Project Jacket

Our latest release was not exactly a Herculean effort, but it was inspired by an incredible 70 year old Hercules chore jacket. Hercules was the United States' premier manufacturer of durable coveralls between 1908 and 1940.

Enough history though, this jacket was love at first sight. It is the perfect layering piece. With 70 years of wear and tear behind it, the jacket was incredibly soft and it draped just right. We were inspired! So we added some of our own details and updated the fit.

After sewing it up, we washed it down to give it the same particular feel that made the Hercules jacket so special. We do not know if this jacket will make history but it surely will stand the test of time. It will also look just as good in the studio as it does layered for a stroll in the city.
