1950-1960 Vintage Lots of Patched “ROYAL MARINES” Officer Wool Tropical Tailor Jacket




タイトなVゾーンで今の着こなしに十分にフィットする、70年前の仕立てとは見えない英国海軍“ROYAL MARINES”の下士官のテイラーメードのジャケット。

The tight V-zone of this jacket fits well with today’s fashion, and it is a tailor-made jacket for a Royal Marines petty officer, which does not look like it was tailored 70 years ago.










生地は着込まれ陽に晒された跡がありながらも、光沢が残り上質さが伝わる、清涼感のあるダークマリンブルーのWool Tropical Clothです。

The fabric is a cool, dark marine blue Wool Tropical Cloth that has been worn and exposed to the sun, but still retains its luster and conveys a sense of high quality.














This jacket has a compact fit with a shapely waist and a sense of beauty that is typical of these days.















Fascinating repairs were made mainly to the fraying that was concentrated on the left and right sides of the front, pockets and cuffs.















The fraying was applied to old fabrics, mainly patches of indigo linen fabrics taken from French vintage and antique biaude.











The indigo, dyed dark black as only an old Biaude can be, is a fascinating repair with layered patches of various blues that have changed over time.















Other fabrics used are old black fabrics in various shades of linen and cotton.











The patches are painstakingly stitched by hand, keeping the stitches as close to the surface as possible. The mysterious expression of the patches obtained by this process creates a completely different charm from that of ordinary patches stitched on the surface of the fabric.















The damage created by chance and time, the indigo altered by chance and time, and the handiwork of a thinking seamster.














The felt collar lining has been replaced with an India ink-dyed cord-stripe Irish linen fabric, adding to the look when the collar is up.














The buttonholes were once dismantled, doubled in number, and re-stitched with linen cords.

















The buttons are vintage French corozo (mainly tagua palms from Ecuador). These quaint buttons are made by processing the endosperm part of the seeds inside the fruit.

Before the development of plastics from the 19th century to the 1950s, these buttons were actively made to take advantage of their smooth feel, hardness, durability, and dyeability.














vegetable ivoryの呼び名通りの乳白色の実を削って加工される何とも言えない丸みと、乳白色のベースを染める事で生まれる優しい色合いの魅力。見た目に反してしっかりした質感と重みを兼ね備えた、味わい深さを持ったボタンです。

As the name “vegetable ivory” implies, this button has an indescribable roundness created by shaving milky white berries, and the charm of the gentle coloring produced by dyeing the milky white base. Contrary to its appearance, this button has a solid texture and weight, and has a deep sense of taste.











The interlining and shoulder padding, which had been too tight, have been removed to create a jacket with a relaxed fit that looks great washed out.















The cuffs, which were closed, have been remade into a modified “Honkiri” style. Whether open or folded over, they create a modern nuance and become a point of enjoyment for the wearer.











The center vent has been redesigned as a side vent to add an authentic and dynamic look and accent to the back.















The softness of the hand-stitched wrinkles and the atmospheric look of the rows of vintage buttons are the result of handwork.











Rustic cotton broadcloth replaced with cupro lining has moderate tension and wrinkles, and the rustic look of the yarn is appealing.











The pockets are also once dismantled, lined, and attached by scooping and sewing by hand with the edges slightly floating to create a rounded and gently three-dimensional pocket.















The flap lining has also been replaced with rustic cotton for contrast, movement, and a clean look. The stitching is 1 to 1.5 mm, which is a sharp departure from the Japanese stitching, which uses thicker threads and a larger pitch.











The sackcloth of the chest pocket is also newly made with rustic cotton, and as is often the case with vintage clothing, there is a lot of dirt stuck in the pockets and a surprising amount of dust on the back of the garment. It is a basic principle of ALTERATION to leave nothing unnecessary behind.











It is a garment that fascinates people who have values that are never created on paper or digital screens, and who are not confused by trends, brands, or prices.
