Whipping Post is not known for making jackets. The Atlanta, Georgia based brand first made its name selling high quality leather goods (like men’s wallets) – but with the release of their Explorer Jacket, it looks as if they’re dipping their toes into the world of apparel. And we couldn’t be more excited.
Usually, when you see a brand drifting from what they do best it can be cause for concern. It seems, though, that Whipping Post is a rare exception. Their new Explorer Jacket is cut from the same earthy, work worn cloth that their leather goods are, and as result it offers up much of the same appeal. Made from 12.7 Ounce British Millerain antique waxed canvas, featuring a removable hood, a full width game pocket, and reinforced elbow pads, this thing is built for nothing less than what its name suggests. And just like any good leather bag, the more this canvas is worn, the more it will develop a patina and character that is all your own. Add this to your wardrobe for $295. [Purchase]
