SS09 Mountaineer Chino and Zip Jerkin
A couple of new styles for Spring 09, the first one is the cinch back chino, we have recut out chino's to create a new style with an articulated knee to give some 3d shape with a clean patch pocket on the back and a cinch for some extra detail. This is really an Autumn 09 development but we are going to try some to refine the fit and get some more trousers on the go for the times when you want an alternative to Albam Selvedge Denim.
The second style is a zip bomber jacket which we call our zip jerkin. Technically a "jerkin" is a sleeveless jacket but I grew up with it in my head that it is a lightweight bomber style. Technicality to one side, the Albam jerking has a double layer front to give more wind resistance when on our bikes. Being released in two fabrications the Spinker Drill from an amazing mill in Italy and a lightweight ripstop nylon. We did this so we have something to wear on our bikes but they are great little pieces to layer under or over our cotton work jackets or zip hoody being released in March.
