80's Casual Seamaster Jacket

Well guys.. how are you braving the big chill?

No need to go out trying to be all macho when really your freezing your butt off....So, don't be a complete and total fashion outcast, how about a great 80's casual style jacket ?

The transformation of ’80s Casuals from niche T-shirt brand to “proper” men’s clothier has been great to see, it really came into its own with its superior range of jackets. The Seamaster is perhaps the label’s greatest achievement yet.

The 'Seamaster' jacket is the fourth garment in 80s casuals 'nautical' range and is a hybrid big brother to the highly successful 'Seafarer'. Made from thin yet resistant wax treated cotton, the inside shell is unlined with taped seams. Outside the jacket features press stud fastening front and buckle neck tie, two large front bellow pockets, 'keep safe' chest pocket with casuals emblem, press stud concealed zip 'stow' pocket on the bottom of the back, twin press stud cuff adjusters and detachable check lined 'storm' hood with foul weather peak

Part fisherman’s coat, part cycling jacket (note the natty peaked hood),

We'd couple this with some quality Levis Vintage Vintage 1947 - 501 XX Rough Rinse Dark Blue jeans and a pair of Wallabees. Thick jumper underneath and you’re set.

Perhaps now that 80s fashion seems to be making a comeback, when you put it on, something is bound to happen" Indeed. This tag line was so great that it got co-opted in the early 1990s and used by various condom makers. Nice.

So guys there you go, get yourself set up in this gear and you'll be riding the crest of the wave. Oh Yeah!
