Warehouse & Co. - The Landing Coat - Khaki
This hooded jacket, crafted with military jungle cloth and incorporating trims and parts from military uniforms and equipment, appears to have been issued by either the US Army or Navy. Unfortunately, the specification label has faded due to washing, and John couldn't find any other label to determine its origin. Nevertheless, the attention to detail on this piece is remarkable. We are simply blown away when we pulled this classic out of the box.
Noteworthy features include a velvet, corduroy inner collar, spacious snap pockets with eyelets, adjustable waist cords, webbing sleeve straps, a poplin lining, and decorative talon zippers—all constructed with Jungle Cloth fabric. This particular item has been a cherished part of John's collection for 15-20 years, standing as one of his favorite military artifacts. It was only just that Warehouse would reproduce this so many could enjoy it. Wildly, it sold out on their website in a flash...so these may be some of the only remaining jackets in the world.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 38 in this jacket. This thing is very large, in accordance with the original spec. Normally, a 38 is out of the question but this 38 was perfect. He could fit a heavy layer underneath if needed. The sleeves are pretty big, but that is remedied by the cuff adjustments. Tommy is 5'10", 170lbs with a 40" chest.
