Fringe Jacket

No. 5458




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

“The common wisdom is that people who wrote the Constitution had no concept of the Native’s way of life, but what made the colonists American as opposed to English was their experiences with the Natives.”

— John Mohawk

Cavalry men in the 19th century could supplement their uniforms with items acquired at frontier trading posts. Perforated buckskin underwear. Buffalo-hide overboots. Rugged jackets like this.

Like farming, roads, and democratic government (see Ben Franklin and the Iroquoian League of Nations), this jacket is one of many things we gained from Native American heritage. 

Supremely durable fringe clothing not only created a dashing expression of individualism, the fringe served to channel water way from the body of the garment, keeping it dry for longer periods. 

Made of the nearly-indestructible and wind-resistant cow suede that American Indians and Montana ranchers favor today, this jacket is a handsome and rugged reminder of all those who built America.

The Native American-Inspired Fringe Jacket (No. 5458). 100% cow suede. Brass Buttons. Upper-thigh length. Clean-cut 6” fringe around armholes, across back yoke, down back of sleeves. Big flapped hip pockets, and two inside. Military chevron cuffs. Very substantial; leather at collar is 1/4” thick. Fully lined.
