Nanamica Stretch Wool Cycling Jacket



01-02. Wool 75% , Nylon 24% , Polyurethane 1%.


Nanamica's use of technical fabrications for daily use can't be denied. While the price may be prohibitive for some, the seamless marriage of functionality and fit is undoubtably superior.

Chinese labour, Japanese price?

What in the world are you talking about? The jacket was made in Japan with locally sourced materials.

Great jacket. The stretch flannel looks fantastic and the reinforced elbows and the madras lining in the sleeves are nice touches. However, I find the proportion suited exclusively to the Japanese buyers. Even after considering the jacket's functionality as a cycling jacket, I think the length of the jacket is way, way too short, even for an asian guy like myself!

@ JK he's a troll, he lusts for attention because his parents never gave him any when he was a young child.

It was simply a question (hence the ?). Loads of Nanamica's gear last season was made in China and cost a bomb, fact.

That last comment is possibly the most pointless comment I've ever read on here, and that includes mine.

That is true. A lot of it was made in China. Is your assumption that it is an inferior product because it was made there?

I guess they sourced production in China since they do it really good for this type of clothing?
You got a lot of nerve showing up again after my last comment son. You better leave.

Hi, does anyone know what the trousers are (or where they're from) that the model is wearing?

c, the critique is not aimed at the quality of the product, but about supporting people who aim for the kind of margins that are only possible when your produce in China. Many of us supported brands like Engineered Garments because they manufacture locally, not because their production quality is so great.
But that's not the only problem with a brand like Nanamica...

I like that EG manufacturers locally, as I've supported them since they launched in NYC at Nom De Guerre back in the day. With that being said, just because it is made in China does not mean that it isn't great quality . Unless you have insider knowledge of the company's operations, you're just postulating as to why they produce there.
