Tropical Barrel - Vintage Chain Stitch Jacket
There's nothing quite like the hum of a nearly 100 year old machine laying down custom stitching on vintage fabric. The second collaboration with Nick Kuchar and The Honolulu Social Club, these one of a kind originals include chain stitched renditions of Nick's art on vintage military jackets. Designed and made in Hawaii.
"Tropical Barrel" is a chainstitched jacket for those always on the search for the perfect wave. "Aloha" script on cuffs and fish art on front chest.

Vintage Jackets are one of a kind and not returnable.
This original chainstitched design is stitched on a genuine Vietnam-era OG-107 service jacket. The OG-107 (Olive Green 107) was the work utility uniform (fatigues) of all branches of the United States Armed Forces from 1952 until its discontinuation in 1989. They were made of an 8.5 ounce cotton sateen and these versions tended to fade quickly to a greenish-grey. This is a true vintage jacket and carries with it decades of wear and use. This includes minor flaws, frays, repairs and other signs of wear consistent with age.
