Another black jacket from the 6876 stable? Oh God. Well, it is the Black Project and if anyone makes their own rules, it’s 6876.
This latest addition is a collaborative effort with Sheffield’s own Mamnick label, and takes heavy influence from a jacket Kenneth Mackenzie first designed in conjunction with CashCa of Japan, in 2000. It’s made in London to the best specifications possible, and like the latest Capandula, it’s made from Ventile. It’s also called the Eyam Jacket, which all history nerds will know is the place where the plague began. That’s right, the Black Death started in a place where a Black Projects jacket is named after. Some people would call that synergy or something. Or another long word.
Anyway, earlier tonight I got drenched while watching a goalkeeping coaching session, such is my glamorous lifestyle. While my nylon Journal Standard parka served me well, I did briefly toy with the idea of using the precipitation to buy a new coat. Like I ever needed an excuse.
But if I did, this would be it.
Mamnick even include a cycle clip manufactured from Sheffield steel. While I cycle regularly, it’s almost always indoors, in a stationary position, often watching Heir Hunters with the subtitles on. Like I said, I’ve got a glamorous lifestyle.
