This is a great find for a couple reasons, thanks to James at Secret Forts. These shawl sportsman jackets are beautiful. I was excited when I saw the red plaid on his blog but when I followed the link to find a perfect shade of grey, I feel a bit more in love. Only while scrolling through the bold Japanese type I happened to notice in all caps, "Made in Canada". Upon further inspection, a blurry tag image revealed these incredible items are actually made in Vancouver, BC - where I live. I haven't been able to find anything about the brand online but best believe the hunt is on. I am going to search this city until I can find these coats. Not only do I want one for myself, but I want to get to the bottom of these North American brands making items strictly for the Japanese market and leaving us out. I'm coming for you National Anthem.
*Unfortunately their brand name is really not helping the cause in terms of searching online.
