  • Product Notes

    “Okimakan” is an Algonqiuan word with a long, and often troubled history. It means “elected chief,” and refers to the leaders of various Algonqiuan-speaking Native tribes in Canada and the US. The Okimakan jacket is certainly suitable for a leader — it’s functional, giving ample room for movement, without a blousy silhouette, and performs admirably as both a work jacket or a dressier piece. The Okimakan is designed after an extremely rare pre-1930s work jacket and made from Japanese Shinki horsehide suede. Shinki is one of the greatest historical tanneries for doing full vegetable tanned horsehide on the planet. In this particular tannage, the horsehide is chrome-tanned then veg-retanned to give a strong supple finish. While the leather has a soft flexible hand, we associate with high fashion jackets, it maintains the strong tenacity of the horsehide. The surface is then sanded and sueded, making this a time consuming process and a particularly rare leather. It uses Japanese replica Art Deco buttons and original 1930s Art Deco buckles for the back cinches. The knits are replica WWII-era, made in their original factory. The back cinches are adjustable enough to tighten the waist by up to six inches.
