Over the last three winter seasons, fashion has been inspired by designs and themes from yester year. This season is no different with the era in trend being the late 1930s. Although this era is often associated with dancing girls and dapper gentlemen, the trend is actually much more down to earth than this. The trend is the lumber jack shirt but most designer brands have given it more up to date styling.
One designer brand which has incorporated the lumber jack shirt into their current collection is Duck and Cover. This brand is renowned for their ability to take a traditional item and add quirky styling to bring it bang up to date for the fashion conscious male buyer. Duck and Cover have not created a lumber jack shirt as this would be too conventional for this off the wall brand, instead they have created a lumber jack inspired jacket.
The Maverick Check Duck and Cover Jacket is available in two colours for the current season. The first is steel check which incorporates shades of grey, black and white to create a modern coloured check. The second colour option available is poppy check which includes vivid red and black check which is very eye catching. Both of these colours have a more modern palette than conventional lumber jack shirts which are traditionally variations of dark red, blue and white in design.
Although traditionally lumber jack shirts are button fastening, this modern Duck and Cover jacket has zip fastening with additional button detailing. Two pockets can be found to the chest whilst two further pockets can be found further down the front. An additional pocket can also be found on the left arm to add a further hint of modern styling. Infamous Duck and Cover branding can be found to the arm and back of the neck along with the buttons and zip whilst military styling in the form of should detail has also been added to this style.
The ideal way to wear this piece from Duck and Cover jackets this season is layered over a thin sweater and under a gillet for a casual look.
