  • Details

    The Pleat Pocket Jeans Jacket is based on early workwear denim jackets with a chest yoke seam and pleated fronts. Here, though, the single pleat is reversed and made much larger to form a full sized hand-warmer pocket each side. Rather than a separate yoke panel, the back panels are brought up and over to the front, forming a smooth biased shoulder which wears particularly comfortably. The back panels are cut up and down the grain of the fabric, with a selvage center back seam, but the pleated front panels are too wide to fit across the narrow fabric, so are cut sideways. This causes the back to shrink up vertically more than the fronts when the jacket is rinsed, forming a subtly raised back.

    Tender’s designer William Kroll puts a lot of care into their research, design, manufacture, and wear. Just as a gardener tends to a vegetable patch, or a shepherd is the tender to a flock of sheep, Tender has the hope that it's customers will live with their products, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell. The British-made clothes and accessories are manufactured in small factories, ateliers, and homes around the country, exploring new approaches to traditional weaving, making, tanning, and dyeing.
