Ginew's Wax Rider Coat is a garment absolutely packed with subtle details and personal history. Inspired by the motorcycle club coat worn by Ginew co-owner Amanda's grandfather in the 50s and 60s, when he would weld for Harley Davidson, these bombproof jackets were designed in his memory.

It's cut in a classic type-3 pattern, but with all the best features included - from the blanket-lined body, to the satin-lined sleeves, to the four exterior pockets, to the embroidery beneath the collar. The body has a more athletic fit, sitting close to the body throughout, with additional adjustment tabs at the hem that can be used to create a tapered profile.

They're made from a 10oz waxed US Army duck canvas, a heavy-duty fabric that will resist wind, rain, and just about anything else you can throw at it. Over time, as the wax wears down in specific areas, the body will develop a unique and incredibly handsome patina, while also softening considerably and relaxing with wear.

The body is lined with Ginew's Facing East blanket - weighing in at 32oz, it's woven by Pendleton in Portland, OR, and features a custom design from Minneapolis-based visual artist Dyani White Hawk. Composed of 82% virgin wool and 18% cotton, it strikes an excellent ratio  - the virgin wool provides softness and warmth, while the cotton gives the blanket additional structure and durability. Like the exterior, the lining will break-in over time, softening and taking the shape of the wearer's body.

These run slightly trim - if you're between sizes, take the larger of the two. Spot clean only.
