No, the PDW Solo Jacket isn’t the kind of garment you slip into when you’re going into the world on your own. Instead, the outfit claims it’s the kind of garment they can see Han Solo rocking if he wasn’t a fictional character and actually spent his time flying bush planes in the wild outdoors.
Rather than look like a garment straight out of the Star Wars universe, the jacket actually takes on the profile of a standard trucker jacket, albeit with a styling that’s more suited for the cockpit of a light sport aircraft. It’s a clean style that should pair nicely with most any type of outfit, so you can wear it whether you’re traveling, driving cross-country, or just gallivanting around the city.
The DW Solo Jacket is made from a 10-oz. cotton canvas, with a DWR coating to ensure it can handle any weather spring sends your way. Heavy-duty nylon threads, double needle stitching on major seams, and bar-tack reinforcements on stress points ensure it can hold up to rugged use, with a relaxed fit that should accommodate light mid-layers for staying warm during rainy days. To reinforce the flight jacket aesthetic, they throw in a bi-swing gusseted back for freedom of movement.
It comes generously supplies with nine compartments, including two snap-closure chest pockets, two side-entry hand pockets, two interior pockets, a secret pocket on the waistband, two zippered arm pockets, and an organizer pocket on the left sleeve. Other features include adjustable snap cuffs, a wind flap, double-reinforced elbows, brass snaps, and YKK reverse coil zippers.
Available now, the PDW Solo Jacket is priced at $198.
