Weekly Edition: The Task Jacket

 

The Task Jacket is reporting for duty. Built from burly 8 ounce duck canvas and lined nylon diamond quilting, this garment will be an iron-strong companion on your toughest jobs. This is the type of garment that never actually makes it into your house. It will forever reside in your garage, workshop, or mudroom.

We shared the Task Jacket with Oakland sculptor and friend Shawn HibmaCronan. While visiting his Alameda workshop, we checked out one of his latest commissioned sculptures. After cutting steel, pushing trucks and making sparks, Shawn was reluctant to hand back the Task; covered in grime and saw dust. It never looked more at home.
