Serving as both an outer garment and duffel bag, the garment-dyed Sharp Engineer demonstrates a skilful marriage of both form and function. Internal cording, capable of receiving a Kit Liner, can be removed and threaded through embroidered eyelets to transform the jacket to its bag state.
Its silhouette and multi-pocket design has been derived from the study of a great range of engineer's jackets, chore coats and other working attire seen in both military and commercial settings throughout the last century.
The Boneville logo with nautical bands has been printed on the inner back of the jacket, visible when the bag is constructed.
This Sharp Engineer has been crafted from a blend of ramie and polyurethane. The former is one of the world's oldest fiber crops, known to have been used for at least six thousand years. Ramie fiber is widely recognised for its strength, shape retention & unmistakable silk lustre. A water resistant coating (polyurethane) is applied to the base fabric to further bolster its capacity to repel water.
This piece has been garment dyed which results in a wonderful array of highs and lows throughout the fabric, giving it a grand sense of depth that few other processes can offer.
