This jacket is made in USA by Runabout Goods and it pays a tribute to vintage workwear and the history of jeans jackets in a contemporary way. Intended to be a useful garment in your everyday life!
The name of the jacket is Starborn. It's because this is the same jacket that was worn by Bradley Cooper playing the roll as Jackson "Jack" Maine in the movie "A Star is Born" that came out in 2018. Runabout Goods made the original jacket for the motion picture and due to the popularity of the style of the jacket they decided to make a small batch of it and offer it to a a few selected retailers across the world and we are honored to be one of them.
The design of this jacket finds it's roots in the legendary jackets made by Foremost, Ranchcraft and Wrangler back in the mid 50s/60s. Designed to be worn by cowboys and workers with lots of smart details making it reliable and functional. The pleated front (the fold that goes next to the zipper) is a way to give the otherwise sturdy canvas fabric some flexibility and the dots that keep the fold in place are built up by closely spaces stitches, a detail that has proven to stand the test of time compared to many other solutions. More loosely spaced stitches wear out after a decade or two and rivets tend to eat a hole in the fabric as the wearer moves through life.
The front of this jacket has a total number of four pockets where the users right pocket has a hole to store a pen. At the lower back the width of the jacket can be adjusted using the two buckles.
