Big Yank ‘Yankshire’ Navy Melton Wool Sports Jacket

Big Yank stands as one of those great early to mid 20th century workwear labels alongside the likes of Hercules or Lee’s ‘Can’t Bust ‘em’. Well, good news, its ‘Yankshire’ label is back, revived by a top vintage collector in Japan (of course). This beautiful ‘sports jacket’ follows a popular style sought after by fans of American classics. Melton wool, this features some incredible detail including talon zipper, leather trim, side cinches, chin strap and tartan lining. However this is about the sum rather than just its parts. If ticking off repro specification isn’t your thing this still stands as just a beautiful piece of outerwear. Find it here.
