MADE IN JAPAN
This jacket was made in Japan for The Hill-Side by one of two companies who share the license to use the Brown's Beach brand name, and the right to reproduce the proprietary wool/cotton fabric that originally made Brown's famous in the early 20th century, and ultimately gave the Worcester, Massachussetts -based brand its cult following among vintage enthusiasts.
This special fabric is tightly knitted from a blend of 74% wool and 26% cotton yarns, with a double-face knit that keeps the soft, fuzzy cotton close to your body and the tough wool fibers on the exterior. It is extremely warm; super comfortable and flexible; water- and wind-resistant; and famously durable.
The jacket itself is produced with construction details, trims, and branding that make it historically accurate to circa 1920s/30s Brown's Beach pieces. The pattern is based on our standard tailored jacket, with three snaps up the lapel, a removable chin strap, three outer pockets, and a center back vent.
NOTE: This jacket fits about one size smaller than our standard tailored jackets, designed to be worn as a somewhat roomy outerwear piece. For example, if you wear a 38 in our standard tailored jackets, you should order a size 40 in the Brown's Beach Tailored Jacket.
