Spiewak, the leader in innovative outerwear since 1904, has teamed up with Kidrobot, the leader in the designer toy movement, to create a limited edition field jacket available in select Kidrobot shops worldwide for holiday 2007.
This collaboration combines Kidrobot’s playful irreverence with Spiewak’s fit and design sense to create a jacket that is a must have for collectors and people who crave technical, one-of-a-kind outerwear. The M-43 Field Jacket is available in either purple or black and is limited to 112 and 288 jackets respectively. The purple jacket features the classic Kidrobot “robot head” pattern and the black features the “rainbow” pattern throughout the lining of the jacket extending through the placket. Additional details from the mad laboratories at Kidrobot include reworking the standard issue military pockets to create unique pockets on a slant, adding contrast knit cuffs and embroidered logo, custom Spiewak and Kidrobot labels and hangtags, and an embroidered limited edition number sewn into each jacket.
Spiewak reworked a style they first manufactured in WWII to a slimmer fit and added in new details for the urban landscape. Four fleece-lined pockets are found on the outside, two of which are double entry. Spiewak has also added a rounded inner pocket featuring an additional hidden stash pocket buried within for music players or other gear. The other side features pen and marker slots for that creative moment on the street. Borrowing from its uniform division, Spiewak has added a unique drop-in hood that drops down the back of the jacket rather than being rolled up in the collar. The jacket is constructed of a high-density microfiber shell that is coated with Teflon for water-resistance and lined with Thinsulate for added warmth without bulk.
The Kidrobot x Spiewak jacket is available exclusively through kidrobot.com and Kidrobot retail stores for $250.00.
