Its well over ten years ago that I started to investigate the idea of evolving the classic British workwear jacket & over a few seasons from around 2001-2007 6876 played with the composition,detailing and fabrication.
We moved from 100% natural fibres,garment dyes and eventually to proofed cotton before the genre subsided until there was a version in our Cashca collaboration more recently.
Still I felt there was something else that I wanted to achieve which was a summer version that was very lightweight, yet robust and with good technical capabilities. This all came together when I sourced a fabric from a regular and progressive supplier ;FOV in Sweden well known for supplying many of the premium technical brands.

When I designed this jacket in 2003 the idea behind it was to provide within the silhouette of a raincoat type jacket a more accessible and casual type of garment by utilising a classic Harrington and exaggerating its size.
Due to the popularity of our Japanese produced collaborative projects we decided to go one step further and develope our own product sourced and manufactured in Japan. Working with premium suppliers and longstanding 6876 contacts the 68 JP 1 shirt is the first garment in a series that the brand will be releasing over the coming seasons.
