This is the new wife of J.PRESS&SON'S AOYAMA STAFF.
This time I would like to introduce HERITAGE STOCK PROGRAM - "VENTILE BALMACAAN & TRENCH COAT".
"VENTILE" is a standard material at J.PRESS, but let's start with an explanation of it.
``VENTILE'' is made of a material developed for the British military during World War II, and is densely woven, making it highly water repellent even though it is 100% cotton.
In addition, J.PRESS uses Egyptian cotton with long fiber length while maintaining the basic structure, adding an elegant luster and suppleness, and a resin coating further improves water repellency, as well as firmness and stiffness, making it highly functional. We have developed a unique Ventile that is elegant and luxurious.
We would like to introduce two types of products using ``VENTILE'', a material that is relatively familiar to everyone.
First is "VENTILE TRENCH COAT".
During World War I, when the battle between France and Germany reached a stalemate, the British Army used trenches (trench). It is said to have originated from
Nowadays, there are many types of trench coats for both men and women, from business to casual ones, but J.PRESS is based on the ones from back then.
A throat latch (chin warmer) that covers the hooked collar from above to prevent rain and wind from entering.
Pleats with internal box pleats at the hem of the back style. It has a wide cut that reaches all the way to the waist, and opens wide when the inner button is unbuttoned. This functional design was originally devised to prevent leg movements while riding on the battlefield.
D-ring sewn into the belt
At the time, it was used to hang knives, water bottles, and grenades, and I don't think it would be used to hang anything these days, but small details like this are irresistible.
The inside also comes with removable wool lightning with a wind pen pattern, so you can wear it for many seasons regardless of the weather.
It's a large size, so you can comfortably wear it over a jacket, and most importantly, it suits your current mood.
Next is "VENTILE BALMACAAN COAT".
The Balmacaan coat is said to be derived from the name of the place "Balmacaan" in the Inverness region of Scotland, and there is a theory that it was originally a type of raincoat and was derived from the trench coat.
It is one of the traditional British coats that is said to have a history of over 160 years, and it spread to the East Coast of America in the 1930s, and J.PRESS has been stocking it since then.
The Balmakaan coat is still very popular in the United States and has become a standard in Japan, but like the trench coat, it is also based on things from that time.
Bal collar with a large and high upper collar
Hiyoku style with no exposed buttons to increase wind resistance
Raglan sleeves for easy movement and a beautiful silhouette
Sometimes there is too much volume from the base of the shoulders to the elbows , but I think the beauty when the sleeves are down is unique to J.PRESS.
Also, like the trench coat, this also comes with a removable wool lightning with a wind pen pattern on the inside .
This is also true for me, but I often hear people say that trench coats and balmachan coats are so standard that they don't have a good time to buy them.
For such people, I would like you to try on a coat at the store first!
Good things should definitely be conveyed.
We also explain the details in detail on Instagram Live, so please take a look there as well.
