The inspiration for TCB’s Tabby’s Jacket did not come from a specific vintage garment or a specific classic workwear brand, but instead from coveralls popular back in the 1930’s. TCB has replicated certain features that set apart coveralls from that era, such as asymmetrical pockets, chin straps, as well as their distinctive cuff design.
The 10oz fabric for the Tabby’s Jacket is woven using a discharge dyeing method to create the Wabash print. When this method is applied, the base indigo dyed fabric goes through an oxidation process to remove parts of the dye in the form of a pattern. Wabash was ubiquitous during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, especially on US railroads, and has become popular again thanks to Japanese brands like TCB who are dedicated to preserving the spirit of classic menswear.
