Queen City Dry Goods Waxed Canvas Racer Jacket

The fruit of a young-buck outfitter out of Burlington, Vermont, this Queen City Dry Goods Waxed Canvas Racer Jacket shows promise. Waxed canvas has been a real treat lately, what with its leathery feel and handsome weathering with wear. I guess we are thinking of a pair of well-used boat shoes in particular, but we like seeing the same traits in a jacket.

This coat needs some Kickstarter to get going, and if it does, construction will be tended to locally. Designer Matt Renna proves that the thing looks good on a motorcycle. Something about the grey coat in particular does make us want to take a bike up and over a barbed wire fence. We will have to wait and see if that happens.
