Look: The Black Rabbit B-58 is asymmetric on both the front and back. The front lapel is big and the back centre-seam comes straight down from the collar’s centre before curving to the left, allowing space for the asymmetric split.
Fit: The B-58 jacket has a classic trench coat fit – it’s roomy enough to move about in even when you’re wearing a heavy sweater underneath.
Construction: The front closure is asymmetric with a loop closure for the top button and a collar tab. Black Rabbit recommends you to wear the collar up.
The outer layers are zigzag-stitched together to keep the collar stiff. Another important detail is the front-neck dart, which gives a “tailored” close-fitting collar. This neat feature makes the welt more resistant to wear and prevents the pocket from distorting over time.
Fabric: Bedford cord is a superior cotton fabric with a flat face. It shouldn’t be confused with regular cord; Bedford is tougher and doesn’t have the velvet surface or deep “wales” you normally associate with corduroy. This hardwearing fabric has been a long-time favourite of the world’s armies – commonly seen on the N1 Deck jacket.
Trim: Details include a button down lining, piped front pocket welts, asymmetric rear split, and plain-weave nylon-lined sleeves. This B-58 trench is half-lined with a “flying” lining in rich cavalry-twill. The half-lining is attached to the side seams with tabs and buttons. The external pockets are welted with a cord.
While the Black Rabbit B-58 jacket has what look like belt-loops on the rear side seams and front waist, it does not feature a belt.
