The Archive Research Project developed by Aitor Throup for umbro has become another standout project between another sports maker and designer.

CP Company Urban Protection Metropolis Jacket

CP Compamy have finally released an slightly updated version on one of the best jackets the have ever produced. The Metropolis Jacket from the landmark Urban Protection Collection. I remember the buzz around the store I worked in when this jacket was released in 1998 with casuals traveling all over to try and get one. I always remember selling one to a well known England player who bought it with its prime use of ‘protecting’ him from the passive weed smoke of his friends!

This time around its comes with an updated for the better fit, like the original the protective nylon based anti-tear, anti-abrasion, oil and water resistant, Dynafil TS-70 fabric remains. Complete with a special anti-smog mask with active filter against the micro dust particles present in urban surroundings; the perfect union between style and function. I know its boiling outside and buying a jacket is last thing on your minds but these wont be around when the weather changes. Buy now from Van Mildert
