Kaptain Sunshine Mackinaw Shirt Jacket

01. 100% wool.
02. Made in Japan.

Words

While being thoroughly basic in the best possible way, this shirt jacket from Kaptain Sunshine makes the right subtle references. The slotted flap pocket recalls Filson's iconic Mackinaw Cruiser, which is an important allusion for this pared down version, considering the hardwearing history of the classic American style. Cut from water-repellent heavyweight wool, the fit is slightly boxy allowing for ample layering and with the enduring success of this timeless design, it’s every bit as relevant as it's always been.

Words

This outstanding small wallet, exceptionally crafted for Kaptain Sunshine by the inimitable Porter & Co., is both unique and tastefully branded. Inspired by examples from the 1940s, it's an accessory with all the characteristics of another time that's versatile enough – with its handy configuration of labelled sections for cards, bills and change – to replace your regular wallet.

Kaptain Sunshine Cooperstown Ball Cap

—01. Made in USA.

Words

I find it very hard to resist an immaculate USN reference like this. The logo is extremely unique and the hat itself features all the right historical details, almost nullifying the steep price for a piece of headwear. Although maybe this only applies to those of us attracted to mid-century American Navy items.

—02. Reversible.

Words

With a lot of stores still on sale, it's the perfect time to pick up some really great pieces at a discount. This reversible vest by the Japanese brand Kaptain Sunshine is full of vintage details and features an olive wool exterior, as well as a wool and alpaca pile lining. Moreover, it takes inspiration from a USN life preserver, an unusual but interesting reference point.
