One of Blackbird's best selling fall brands is Whillas & Gunn. Combining the outback flair of true Australian heritage, subtle military embellishments, high grade fabrics, and practical fitting and wearability, it's a brand on the cutting edge of modern vintage.
The Mascot bomber jacket's design comes from the famous "Ike" jacket, a tailored, cropped wool officer's jacket made famous by Dwight D. Eisenhower during WWII. Longer in the body and black in color, this updated relative is made with heavyweight cotton twill and has two inside pockets for personal effects, a brown plaid lining, and a belted waist cinch. Two front hand pockets are a haven for hands on a cold November night. Two stately chest pockets are sized perfect for flasks and passports and satin-lined sleeves let you put it on or take it off with ease.
Whillas & Gunn is a family company from Australia producing lifetime products since 1972. They combine timeless rugged Australian outerwear with contemporary styling and a polished fit. With an unsurpassed attention to detail and quality, these garments are ready for both country and urban living and will no doubt stand the test of time in both durability and style.
