Introducing the Freeman Channel Jacket
Posted: May 07 2015It's springtime in Seattle, which means warm weather, blue skies and sunshine...for a few minutes, at least, followed by a burst of rain, and then maybe a little bit of sun, and then some more rain? It's hard to say. Thankfully, the latest Freeman piece was designed specifically with these between-season days in mind.
The Channel Jacket (available in Slate Blue and Forest Green) is a Seattle-centric take on the classic Harrington Baracuta jacket – a lightweight, three-season jacket for adventures within the city as well as beyond. "We wanted to create a jacket with fabrics that were not only complementary to the silhouette of the pattern, but that were durable enough to knock down a chill wind or sporadic rain shower," says Scott Freeman, co-founder and designer at Freeman. "In a place like Seattle, we think it's always a good idea to be ready for such things, and we think this jacket is the perfect solution."
Featuring a Japanese-made 60/40 cotton-nylon outer (treated with the same DWR finish as our raincoats) and a 100% cotton liner, it's hearty enough to deal with a burst of rain, yet lightweight enough for warmer weather. The Channel Jacket is slim fitting and cut with the same raglan-sleeve construction as our shirts and jackets – it's a true three-season jacket that will get you through the fall while looking sharp and staying dry.
