Farrell Cotton Bomber – Autumn Winter 13

Farrell Cotton Bomber – Autumn Winter 13


So this is our Cotton Bomber. Again Rob and I were discussing some military pieces, we had some lovely vintage that we were working with. It was based on an original piece. This is actually an American, it’s a B-15 bomber’s flight jacket. And again you can see those references between the two. We’ve kept the original beautiful fur collar. It’s a fake fur in the case of the Farrell one. It’s in the cotton satin. We’ve maintained all those original features. They’re there for functionality. There’s no need to change them. But we have made it more modern, it’s more lightweight. It’s in this beautiful olive green colour. You’ve got the heavy gauge, metal eight zip, metal eight zips with the double ended pullers there. If we just zip that open, we’ve kept the original pocket formation. So you’ve got the snapped welts both sides and then you’ve got the double pen pocket, which is just on the left sleeve. And then you’ve got these really nice rugged cotton ribs, which are at the hem and they’re also at the cuff. I forgot to mention previously, with that neck, when you bring it up, this comes across and you can undo the latch. That comes over, again just to kind of keep you warm on those cold winter’s days. Really beautiful. If I undo that again, I’ll open it up and show you the inside. So it’s quilted to the inside, again for warmth with this really lovely signature Farrell red colour. Really great, little short bomber jacket. Really, really cool.
