The Story

Based on the "HERCULES" collared sports jacket produced by Sears Roebuck, a major American retailer, as a private brand in the 1930s. Rainbow Country paid attention to reproduce the finest and smallest details:

- The finishing method of the horse leather is as close as possible as the original. The horse leather uses a brown base (tea-core), while the top layer is pigment finished, meaning it has an additional layer, in this case a water-based lacquer, producing a glossy and oily touch that will slowly and beautifully disappear as your wear the jacket ;

- The zipper is an original based on the square TALON of the 30's, and the fastener tape end is also reproduced faithfully ;

- The ball chain on the chest is also made and attached with the same ball chain as the real one with the original engraving ;

- A bespoke melton wool is used for the lining, and a bespoke machined bowl-shaped nut button is also used for the button ;

- The back is also a classic with a bat wing type yoke on a panel divided into 3 parts with each part connected with double stitching.

Additional informations

  • Get Free Shipping when you order a Rainbow Country jacket! Leather jackets are not exchangeable as it is a difficult and expensive product to transport, so pay attention to the sizing chart. If you have any questions, contact me.
  • The Zipper is a vintage reproduction of 1930s zippers, and it may take a while until the leather soften up around it and the zipper to slide buttery smooth. Pay attention, when you unzip, to bring the slider all the way to the bottom
  • Inconsistencies and leather marks are absolutely normal and are part of the wild life of the animal, as this leather has undergone minimum treatment.
