Continuing from our previous post:
What do Catholic school girls, 80â€™s grunge bands, Braveheart and now let me add lumberjacks, have in common with Double D Ranchâ„¢?
More plaid.l [caption id="attachment_344" align="alignright" width="388" caption="Jack Fork Mtn. Jacket"][/caption] Double D Ranchâ€™sâ„¢ â€œJack Fork Mountainâ€Â jacket will be your â€˜go toâ€™ jacket this fall even if you donâ€™t chop wood for a living.Â Â Â The suede finished edges omit the need for facings so this jacket stays lightweight and sporty.Â Â Different from a barn jacket, this silhouette is a simple, slim blazer-cut with the collar designed to be worn up or folded back for two totally different looks.Â I added the suede tie-belt and huge antler buttons to give it a rough-hewn effect. Interesting Tidbit: the inspiration for this fabric was taken from a pair of vintage hunting, lumberjack pants a friend of ours owned.Â They were heavy and scratchy, but we loved the ombre effect the black and cream yarns made.Â Luckily we were able to collaborate with Woolrich Woolen Mills (on the fabric side - not the finished goods side) to reproduce this fabric in a lighter weight and mixed yarn blend.
Now you donâ€™t have to be a scratchinâ€™ lumberjack to wear it.
