A video about our Manchester model by MikeThe Vanson MANCHESTER JACKET was inspired by the scene in early-1960s England, at a time when the Mods and the Rockers were battling each other for recognition and popularity. It recalls the trans-Atlantic fashions of the day. The Beatles, The Stones, the Yardbirds, The Hollies, the Dave Clark Five, the Spencer Davis Group…when they first came onto the scene remember the thin ties, slim, fitted clothes and narrow lapels? All this was way before bell-bottoms and jeans became the de facto hip look.

Slim and long, the Vanson MANCHESTER JACKET has a zippered kick-pleat in the back and a two-way center-front zipper to adjust the jacket for optimum riding position. The right sleeve has a cigarette pocket at the bicep area, while the left sleeve has an ignition key pocket just above the wrist zipper. Twin matching inside pockets built integrally into the curved facings lie under both the left and right fronts.

Outside front pockets include two zip-close hand pockets and two diagonal-slash, zip-close chest pockets. The vintage Vanson Flying V logo is printed by hand on the left shoulder.  Other nice Vanson touches are the leather pull-tabs riveted to the pocket zippers.     

This hip-length jacket is a walk-about metro style with a strong '60s Mod scooter influence. Whether you stroll Tokyo's Shibuya-ku or ramble in New York's SoHo, the Vanson MANCHESTER JACKET brings the past forward to today.
