The Amhearst jacket from Indigofera is inspired by the classical M-51 Field jacket, a garment that has became a modern classic because of it's well made design that is entirely focused on functionality.
This style of jacket is perhaps best known for i's appearance in the movie Taxi Driver from 1976 were we get to follow Travis Bickle played by Robert Deniro in his life as a taxi driver in New York. His M-65 jacket was decorated with a King Kong Company patch on the shoulder and a "We are the people" pin on the chest that both became pieces of an iconic outfit.
The jacket is made of a durable cotton twill fabric and features two expandable chest pockets and two lower hand warmer pockets that are lined with wool. There is also one inner pocket and the jacket closes with an oversized Japanese Scovill zipper. The waist can be adjusted with a drawstring and the same goes for the lower hem of the jacket.
