PRE ORDER: Deputy CPO Flannel Shirt 7.5oz Japanese Merino Wool


( / )



We were fortunate to source a Japanese merino wool flannel last minute for Fall that has all the attributes of vintage flannels commonly found on quality heritage wool shirts from the 40' and 50's. The weaver is one of the few remaining in Japan that still sets the yarn by hand before weaving. This gives the wool yarn a course and uneven appearance evident in the multi tonality of the yarn color. This is necessary when seeking to emulate wool fabric from the golden era of American heritage wear. Another attribute of this method is in the hand feel. We have all had the experience of wool that is coarse and uncomfortable against the skin but this is an exceptional quality with an extremely soft and wearable texture. Merino wool can be delicate which can potentially affect it's durability, however a small percentage (5%) of nylon has been woven in with the yarn that gives it structure and strength which ensures longevity and durability. Our flannel shirts are crafted to change your perception of wool, featuring an exceptionally soft and comfortable fabric that feels great against the skin, allowing you to enjoy warmth and American heritage style in equal measure.

Our CPO style shirt draws from the well of both military and American western wear. Two front flap chest pockets and pleated sleeves reference a classic CPO shirt - mix it up with western style front and back yokes, shaped hem and antique brass buttons and you have a new classic in the making. Add in two side hand warmer pockets and it becomes a daily wearer. 



A 7.5oz merino wool woven on vintage looms in Japan make this a very rare and special flannel that offers enhanced warmth and an element of water repellency. The 1/4" thick diamond quilted inner lining makes this a supremely comfortable and wearable substitute for heavier jackets.
