From Victorian era curiosities to early 20th century equestrian and motorcycle wear to rare WW2 era items - Black Sign garments are beautifully constructed, with a shared identity and aesthetic cohesion running through the collection to a degree we rarely see in brands focusing on reproductions & recreations.
Quite literally two jackets in one, the 1940s 2-Way Field Jacket is another of Black Sign's more by-the-book reproductions, aiming to faithfully recreate a vintage hunting jacket from their archives. Featuring a relaxed a-line silhouette that makes layering easy, it's an excellent cold weather jacket, with two different configurations as well as fabrics.
One face of the jacket uses an alpaca blend ombre check plaid, with a slightly stiff and scratchy texture, it's got a proper "wool jacket" feel to it. This side closes up with a zip placket, and features two welted slash handwarmer pockets sitting above two flap pockets on the front.
The other side is made from a 100% cotton military dobby cloth, with a smooth texture and gentle sheen. Closing up with urea buttons, it's got two slash handwarmer pockets and a single breast pocket that buttons closed for your most important objects, like that $20 you were going to put into your wallet but forgot, so now you just have $20 sitting in one of your jackets, waiting for you to rediscover it as a little treat - or another thing if you didn't do that.
