TCB is a Japanese brand inspired by fits and materials from the past and they strive to reproduce those iconic garments as closely as possible.
The Seamens Jacket aims to reproduce the 40's USN deck jacket as close as possible to the original specs. This style of jacket was worn during world war two and today it's one of the most iconic denim garments from the Navy.
The hickory striped fabric was originally used by USN but also by work wear manufacturers, wearing a striped fabric made sure that one stayed visible which sure could come handy when no matter if you fell into the sea or if you wanted to avoid being hit by a train while working on the tracks. As one might know a wider stripe was also used in prisoners garments back in the day for the exact same reason so that the wearer stayed visible!
The fit of this jacket is just perfect to wear for both men and women.
