• The Northeaster is intended as a year-round jacket, but if you are looking for a jacket for colder weather we'd recommend you check out the Northeaster's sister jacket - the Hudson, which is designed as a winter jacket.
Basically a simpler version of our "Hudson".... perhaps the jacket for a weekend in the woods rather than a full season in The Arctic Circle yet still a heavy duty jacket giving total foul weather protection from the rain, snow and sleet. Like it's big brother, this jacket is built for comfort, warmth and practicality, it's got extra length to keep out the weather and while a leather collar is standard we'd advise the optional fur collar would be better to keep the neck snug.
The jacket is closed by a Talon zipper, the waist draws in with an elasticated section integrated under the leather on the side panels but for the ultimate in draught exclusion we've added a classic 1950s style detachable belt which draws the jacket in to repel the worst of any weather. The belt is constructed in two sections which button onto the half belt at the back. For practicality we've fitted six pockets, two handwarmer pockets below two cargo pockets with stud down flaps for security, all the pockets are lined in heavy duty moleskin for strength, warmth and comfort.
This jacket is a 1950s inspired design which offers a fit with quite a bit of room around the body which was typical of the more relaxed fitting styles of this era.
The perceived ‘correct’ fit of the 1950s was generally more ‘oversized’ than modern sizing, so we typically recommend either selecting your usual size for this style to achieve the intended ‘1950s’ relaxed fit, although many choose to size down for a more modern fitted look.
Additionally, the jacket has a slight taper to the waist and a belt to provide a more fitted look around the waist while retaining room around the chest and shoulders.
