Fresh Off the Truck: Dehen 1920 Waxed Canvas Field Coat
Posted: Nov 29 2016
Just like the title says, we're about to spotlight a brand-spankin'-new product, freshly arrived at Freeman: the Waxed Canvas Ribbed Field Coat from Dehen 1920. You can practically still smell the scent of the Willamette River on these Portland-made beauties, so we wanted to give you a quick look at 'em while they're still all here (seriously – we got a similar jacket last year and they were nearly gone within a week!).
The Waxed Canvas Ribbed Field Coat is as sturdy a piece of outerwear as you'll find. As the name implied, the outer shell is made from a medium-weight 10 oz. canvas that's been entirely waxed. This makes it water-repellant and thus a great option for these rainy Pacific Northwest falls and winters – it's warm enough to keep the cold out and, thanks to the wax, it'll stay dry once the rain starts to fall.
The Waxed Canvas Ribbed Field Coat also features 100% worsted wool ribbing at the collar and cuffs for extra warmth – these parts of the jacket are all knit at Dehen's Portland factory on vintage 1940s knitting machines. With two brass-snap patch pockets in front and one at the chest, plus a brass-snap front placket, combined with the beautiful texture of the canvas, the Waxed Canvas Ribbed Field Coat is quite the sight to behold.
Inside, it features a quilted sateen liner for comfort and warmth, as well as an interior welt pocket and a leather locker loop for easy hanging once you've come in from the elements. All together, the result is a beautiful combination of the sportswear that Dehen 1920 has built its nearly century-long reputation upon with the warmth and ruggedness of quintessentially Pacific Northwest outerwear. We absolutely love the Waxed Canvas Ribbed Field Coat – come try one out soon, before they're all gone!
