The P&Co Tour Jacket
Something to Write Home About
Greetings from the Aloha State
Not only is our Tour Jacket pattern based on the classic 1950’s-’60s mechanic jacket, but the hand-drawn artwork print that lines the inside was influenced by the same era. The ‘Aloha’ style drawings were inspired by vintage Hawaiian radio & postcards from our Creative Director’s personal collection.
During the late 1950s as the US began to recover from WW2, and Hawaii became a US state, tourists flocked in their numbers to the ‘Paradise of the Pacific. The “coral cliffs, plunging ravines, serene waterfalls & sleepy bays” of the Hawaiian islands, that were a welcome contrast to post-war America, were often described as the “childhood dreams of an island of Paradise”.
The postcards depicted an alternate lifestyle- an escape from the everyday.
This need for escapism is something that really resonated with us, following what is now over a year of restriction and limited travel. We’ve got through what is hopefully the worst of a global pandemic, and now is the time to look forward to what awaits us.
The Tour Jacket is a reflection of ‘post-war optimism’, and a reminder that good times are ahead.
Here For A Good Time & A Long Time
Our Tour Jacket doesn’t just look good- it is made from a durable 12oz cotton-twill that has been washed for added softness & wearability. The hardy material- finished with antique brass buttons & metalware, and the timeless silhouette combined, make for a staple piece that will be with you for the long run.
The boxy fit adds room for layering- which means this jacket isn’t limited to the warmer seasons.
