Drilled for comfort

Anyone who has served in the military knows what drill can mean. The fabric of the same name, a favorite of all military fabrics for thousands of years, inspired Christian Weber to turn the tables and drill a casual jacket for comfort. How does it work? In the 3-component fabric Drill, the wool yarn is replaced by elastic yarn. Effect: the drill stretches. The twill weave used is a steep twill that refines the drill into a gabardine. Effect: casual elegance. Each jacket is made individually from the blank, then washed and dyed. Effect: The jacket no longer shrinks, and the fit remains perfect. Further contributions to wearing comfort: two spacious pockets, full-length button placket and a comfortable stand-up collar that can be turned into a lapel collar. Effect: quiet luxury in two facets.

Men's fashion was inspired by the prehistoric military. Men were quickest to embrace the close-fitting lines of the jacket and saw it as a status symbol of masculinity. This realization was withheld from pants for a long time because pants were typical of the "wild" equestrian peoples and ancient Rome condemned them as the clothing of barbarians. The prejudice lasted for 1000 years.
