The Bomber Jacket
First commissioned by the U.S. Army in 1917 for its pilots, the bomber's shorter length (ideal for sitting in cockpits) and light lining make it a perfect jacket in between seasons or a smart outer layer when it really gets chilly
The Working Coat
For cattlemen, the heavy wool, handwarmer pockets and shearling collars of these hard-wearing coats were key for working brutal winters while on horseback.
The Inuit people of the Arctic Circle first developed these hooded pullover jackets for hunting and fishing expeditions. This jacket is made to keep winter's worst at bay.
