my dad had a jacket like this a while back and I know I like it. Unionmade is selling this highly functional jacket by the Japanese brand Beams+. We know Unionmade is a store out west that’s all about classic, sturdy, well-made items and that they carry super legit brands like Woolrich Woolen Mills, Billykirk and Freemans Sporting Club. And if you haven’t heard of Beams+, you should learn their name too. The brand launched in 1999 and is about way more than just clothes – it’s a lifestyle that includes music, art and interior design. This 1970’s-inspired parka has updated details like a draw-cord hem, ergonomic hand-warmer pockets and high performance fabrics that make it waterproof and breathable. The result is pretty much the perfect piece for outdoor activities, not so bad for wondering around the city either. There’s a reason this guy’s back.
