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.
