Post Overalls Spring Summer Jackets

Some of my pals were giving me jip a few weeks back because I hadn’t posted an article on jackets for ages. Therefore, I thought I had better get my shit together this week and tell you what current outerwear I’m into, before it’s too warm to actually wear any of it! Cue work-wear label Post Overalls.

Now ‘Post Overalls’ is not to be mistaken for the Royal Mail get-up donned by your local posty. However, if the employees of our 350 year old postal service were to be given these jackets as standard uniform I might consider a career change and sign-up; I realise I’m making it sound like signing up to go to war here. Having said that, delivering mail around my way might not be too dis-similar to serving on the front line.

Post Overalls is in fact a U.S menswear brand with its roots in American vintage work-wear. Inspired by industrial work clothing from the 1920s and 30s, the brands designer Takeshi Ohfuchi has has married old-world craftsmanship with modern design techniques to create classic, vintage apparel with some super creative detailing; sounds decent doesn’t it?

Now if I was pushed to choose some of this great spring outerwear, I would plump for either; the ‘Mattalini 2 Jacket’ which comes with an all over navy/green tartan print, patch pockets and contrast stitch detailing, or the ‘Engineers Jacket’, featuring all-over blue and white cotton print, front button pockets and ace collar detail featuring a 2 buttoned crossover strap  Decent, don’t you think?

Want one? Get them over at Portabello’s menswear gem ‘The Garbstore’
