A Classic Workwear Shape

The Sack jacket is a classic workwear shape first named so in the 19th Century. On the chest is one pocket, and there’re two lower pockets as well. There’s even a watch buttonhole at the closure so you can fasten your pocket watch.

The jacket by Dawson Denim is made entirely by hand in the workshop of the brand in Brighton. Sewn-on vintage machines from the 1950s, all the patterns for their products are cut, graded, and finished by hand. The jacket is stitched with stone thread color, they used core-spun thread designed specifically for denim. The pockets on the jacket are lined with natural Japanese herringbone fabric for extra strength.
