The Tender Type 431 Jacket takes some of the best parts of William Krolls work and merges them in to one garment. Here you’ll see the body panels of the Butterfly shirt, the pockets of the Wallaby Shirt and the inverted raglan sleeve of the Zoetrope Coat. Whether worn as an over-shirt or jacket, this piece is the ideal summer companion.
This model is rinsed to shrink and has been made from a custom woven, 25 dips indigo-dyed ring-spun cotton warp and ecru cotton weft. Commonly known as Cotton Taunton fabric, the broken twill cloth weighs 11oz and was historically a standard of the town of Taunton, in Somerset in the South West of England.
The rich blue you see on this jacket is taken from Prussian Blue, a pigment dervied from iron salt and discovered in around 1704 in Berlin, by the chemist Johann Jacob Diesbach. Whilst woad and indigo dyes which were being used at the time were susceptible to fading in natural light, Prussian Blue proved a reliable alternative, known for its intense, slightly red caste blue.
Model is 5'11" and wears size 3/M.
