Firehouse Jacket Olive
Created for the new Firehouse Hotel in L.A.’s Arts District, our lightweight work coat nods to history with a thoroughly modern silhouette.
We first drew inspiration from 1940s French and railroad-era work coats. Then we made sure every detail on these unisex coats fits perfectly, from the drape of the shoulder to the width of the sleeves to the length of the jacket, to make sure it falls just right on both men and women. We tried scores of fabrics before settling on a super-soft French twill in four rich colors inspired by the Firehouse, then gave it a two-part sectioned chest pocket and roomy lap pockets inspired by our apron designs.
It’s Americana-meets-today, and because it’s made in and informed by the city of L.A., it’s the perfect layering piece to throw on over your favorite button-down or tee when warm days turn to cool nights. (Maybe even add a bandana, like they do at the Firehouse!)
