Stone Island Garment Dyed Flowing Camo Bomber Jacket

Stone Island SS15 Camo Bomber Jacket | The Style Raconteur

A new running theme or side collection for Stone Island this continues for Spring Summer 2015 with an design inspired by an indonesian  camouflage from the 1960’s. The garment that stands out for me is the simple bomber jacket, the fabric is a double weave military-spec fabric, made with a cotton / nylon blend weft and a linen warp, which has then been treated inside to create a light level of wind and water resistance. A classic, athletic design, it is equipped with two welt pockets, a ribbed collar, cuffs and hem and is finished with of course the detachable logo patch at the arm.
