indigo striped jacket and pant
inspired by the US Navy issued deck shawl of the 1940's, we took into consideration every aspect of this jacket. with a vintage construction, we added length to the body for our take on a traditional smock. each detail of the garment is carefully sourced and is individually hand crafted to the utmost authenticity and detail.
"for the montagnards" hand carved bracelets in brass
The classic Montagnard Bracelet was given to soldiers as a symbol of friendship and respect. Each piece is hand carved by Chen, a Montagnard warrior who fought alongside the Green Berets during the Vietnam War. Chen explained to us the incredible impact, meaning, and significance of these bracelets. Each individual piece is hand-cut and shaped, then carved by hand with symbols referring to luck, life, and death. Chen still helps train U.S. Special Forces at Fort Bragg, N.C. to this day. Bracelets are 100% Made in the USA and packed in original Vietnam era waterproof magazine surrender bags.
