It is a leather yoke down vest, a long-selling model of Sugar Cane, a brand that develops a wide range of workwear such as shirts and jackets, focusing on denim materials. Since Sugar Cane originally developed clothing for the U.S. military base, the brand is supported by the spirit of craftsmanship and know-how, all of which are made in the U.S., even though it was born in Japan. It is an item with a high level of support for its versatility because it combines warmth and mobility, has a light impression even though it is a winter item, and allows you to enjoy coordination that makes the most of the impression of the innerwear.
The style is based on the down vests of the 1970s, when heavy-duty fashion began to be popular. It is made of T/C material (a hybrid of Tetoron and cotton), which combines the warmth and texture of cotton with quick-drying and wrinkle-resistant properties. Its high functionality can be seen from the fact that it is often used for outdoor products such as tents.
Tetoron is a polyester material that has become a joint trademark of Teijin and Toray.
The removal of the sleeves enhances mobility, while providing a strong heat-retaining property, a feature unique to down vests. While it has a sense of volume in its appearance because it is filled with 80% down and 20% feathers, it is very lightweight, weighing only about as much as a thick parka (in comparison with the products we carry), so you will not feel stressed even if you wear it for long periods of time.
The western yoke on the shoulders, which is made of cowhide, is a detail that originated when hunters reinforced their shoulders to prevent them from being worn out when they carried rifles, but it is often seen in modern fashion because of its high design quality.
The pockets on both sides are amply sized and useful for keeping hands warm and for storage. They are deep enough to keep things from falling out. The front body is double-layered with zippers and snap buttons to reduce the ingress of cold air.
