This season we have teamed up with London-based retailer Garbstore to present a limited-edition down vest based on an original life preserver from the 1930’s. Debuting as part of Garbstore’s Fall / Winter 2010 collection entitled “The Road Below,” the Penfield for Garbstore vests are another special project added to Penfield’s long-standing history of innovative and prestigious collaborations.
A modern interpretation of the vintage toggle-fasten life preservers once commonly used in civilian lifeboats, the vest is constructed from Penfield’s own Hudson Wax Cloth for extra protection against wind and rain. Features include a double duffle-toggle front, two reverse-opening zippered pockets and a leather hang loop. The vest is available in two colorways, deep red or black.
The Penfield for Garbstore 1930 Life Preserver Vests are now available on our website to all EU customers. For non-EU customers, please visit Garbstore.com.
