The all new 1930's edition of our classic 1950's highwayman. A pre war profile "built on" an already legendary much loved style. The new Highwayman incorporates all the textbook features of our 1950's Highwayman.
We have the three pocket design, two piece fronts, three piece back...no change there then. Where it differs is the fit and contours of the jacket. We have, in effect tailored our original highwaymen to arrive at a more slim cut look. To do this we used our premier pattern block. The slimmed down sleeve now incorporates air vents to its upper underarm. Shut at the wrist by a Corozo button cuff. An accentuated curve to the V-yolk of the upper back compliments the raised armholes and slight dip to the front of the jacket.
Standard for the premier highwayman is a riveted hookless front zip and a looped ball to the chest pocket. Side adjusters on this trimmed down waist are as with our classic 1950's highwayman. Where our redesigned and reshaped collar has decreased in width it has however gained in shape and sharpness, enhancing the slimmed down fit of this jacket beautifully.
This jacket is a 1930s inspired design which features our premier cut (a slim fit with high cut armholes and sleeves), offering an even closer fit to the body than was typical of the slimmer fitting styles of this era.
Additionally, This jacket’s side adjusters are closer to the hem and can be cinched in or out to achieve a more relaxed/fitted look around the hips.
We normally recommend selecting your usual size for this style (typically the closest size to your expanded chest measurement) for a comfortably slim fit and the intended look. Very few people can comfortably size down in our Premier styles (and if you can, there will be little room for layering) and depending on your body type and what you intend to wear underneath the jacket, you may need to size up from your usual size.
Don’t worry, all sizing information displayed here is only a guide. Every order placed is checked over by a member of our production team who will confirm your size selection against your measurements or recommend any necessary changes that need to be made. If you have any specific queries, you can note these in the special instructions box on the ‘measurements’ page when placing your order.
