"Plainsman"

Since we introduced our 1930s Half Belt back in the 1990s we have often been asked for longer versions of the jacket. Although we can add length to most of our styles we've always felt the best way to make a longer jacket in a slimmer 1930s style was to design a jacket specifically with the extra length that seems to be popular with many customers.

We've taken our original patterns, narrowed the collar slightly, recut the upper body and sleeves, removed the pleats at the waist and repositioned the back half belt to the optimum position for the length and to reflect the longer versions that started to appear in the late 1930s.
We've narrowed the sleeve slightly, reshaped but retained the button cuff while the front is one piece, like the shorter version, but with much less slope to the front and with a higher set zipper, again a typical feature of the half belts of this era. We use a genuine deadstock Talon zipper as standard on this jacket

The result of these tweaks is a very stylish but simple jacket, very reminiscent of the late 30s and ideal for everyday wear. Fitted with a Herringbone Tweed lining as standard, this jacket is available with any of our option linings.

For those who prefer a more elaborate design we've taken this beautifully fitting pattern, made some changes to the panel configuration resulting in a very different looking jacket, The Wayfarer, inspired by an original from the period.
