Over history the Utility Jacket has been worn for a variety of purposes, from workwear and military combat through to leisurewear.  For this design, the UK brand Nigel Cabourn pieced together three different vintage garments including the USMC shirt jacket and these can be seen in the distinct upper and lower parts as well as the left chest pocket. This great item is made in two colours for Spring Summer ’16: a special washed indigo and an indigo denim version. Great denim cut and sew item!
