2010 is fast becoming a “year of commemoration”. Jordan Brand and Stussy are both celebrating the anniversaries of their establishments (25 years and 30 years respectedly) Joining the fray is New England classic Penfield, which is honoring its 35th anniversary. As a tribute, designers at Penfield will begin to re-issue some of the label’s most popular editions, including the Pac-Jac Pull Over Jacket.
Introduced first in the late 1980s as part of its technical outerwear collection, the Pac-Jac quickly became a staple among outdoor enthusiasts, who loved its lightweight construct and packable feature. The same features translated to the pull-over’s success among European urban scenes several years later, an ideal outerwear to have when it comes to the unpredictable nature of weather in cities like London. The jacket became a favorite with the likes of Noel Gallagher, lead guitarist of Brit rock band Oasis.
Composed of 100% nylon, the wind and water resistant outerwear includes adjustable hem, elastic cuffs, adjustable hood, and front “kangaroo” pocket. All can be conveniently pack into a front compartment. Comes in 3 classic colorways from the original archive – Red/White, Navy/Grey, and White, each with a special 35th anniversary “1975-2010” zipper pull. The Penfield 35th Anniversary Pac-Jac Pull Over Jacket will be available at all Penfield retailers the coming weeks as its Spring 2010 Collection.
