Hey, all. Remember when we did that post about Peter Nguyen of LEON's leather washing technique? We ran a few of Tim Hamilton's S38 Military Leather Jackets through the process, and we have to say, they turned out awesome. Pre-wash, the jackets were really clean and smooth, so much so that they hardly showed any of the leather's color or textural variation. Washing them gave them a whole new lease on life (so to speak). As you'll see below, their new, lived-in crinkled texture and slight fade changes the entire look, making this once hard-to-pull-off style a newly wearable, completely comfortable, and absolutely beautiful sight to see. Take one of these home for yourself before the Blackbird staff starts fighting over them.
DETAILS: 100% calfskin military jacket with linen and viscose body and sleeve lining, white painted hardwear, and combination snap and two-way zip enclosure. Tim Hamilton's signature luxury and attention to detail come through in the hand-finished construction of this jacket. It comes equipped with three diagonal zip pockets and two flap pockets on the front, a rear zip flap pocket at the shoulders, metallic-tinged linen body lining, and a versatile enclosure system that offers the wearer a few different looks depending on how he does it up. Washed and conditioned by hand at Blackbird headquarters, this coat possesses a unique, ridiculously soft and lived-in texture and look that far differentiates it from any other leather jacket you've ever come across. Wear it as a mid-weight middle layer under a gray, navy, or camel topcoat for extra warmth and a little hint of that faded blue or let it stand out as an outer layer against a contrasting shirt. Note: This faded light blue goes with almost any color - bold or neutral - and this cut and style can carry a dressy or casual look effortlessly.
