Experiment 005 - Safari Shank

Experiment 005 - Safari Shank

A shank jacket set to roam free. A longer silhouette and drawcord waist give new form to the tough yet breathable Workcloth, while the hidden placket and pocket flaps add discretion to the dark matte shanks.

Additional Information

For years now we've always suspected the Workcloth would make fantastic jackets, but have struggled to find the right form. With the Shank Jacket we finally found a classic that works damn well, but we always suspected there was something wilder and fresher that could emerge too. With this experiment we just cut the Shank Jacket loose, pushing and following to whatever shape it wanted to take. The result was rather beautiful, a vaguely safari jacketesque silhouette with a drawcord of Ultrasuede, a hidden front placket and angled chest pockets.
Workcloth Logo
Tough and beautiful, there are quite literally two sides to our Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas. The outer face is canvas weave comprised of a healthy percentage of Cordura grade nylon, making it our strongest and most durable fabric. The inner face is completely different, a loosely woven nylon-poly blend that has been made to a subtle softness. The result is incredible: a rugged, ready-for-anything fabric that stays both comfortable and breathable.

The Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas weighs in at 275 gsm (10 oz), slightly more than our OG Cloth. It has a slight two-way stretch and great drape. The "self-cleaning" NanoSphere® treatment emulates the surface of a lotus leaf, giving it nice resistance to water, coffee, wine and dirt. When it does get wet, it dries much faster than conventional fabric, keeping you in comfort no matter the weather.

Bluesign certified for a cleaner planet. Machine wash warm (do not use fabric softener). Hang dry or tumble dry on low for 5-10 minutes maximum. (It dries fast). Ironing or a quick tumble dry will restore the NanoSphere® treatment.
