I know that they’re called Coach jackets because everyone associates them with American sportswear (as well as NWA) but for me they remind me more of American movie detectives. You know the type of high octane action packed features I mean don’t you? Films that have a scene where a real lone wolf ‘maverick’ kinda cop replete with tache, nicely worn in jeans, Lacoste polo and itchy trigger finger. Who decides to throw one of these jackets on before running headlong into a fire-fight in order to avoid getting blown away by his fellow boys in blue (thanks to it having the words FBI written in bold letters across the back). Take your pic from the likes of Clint Eastwood, Robert Duvall, Eddie Murphy, Mel Gibson, Denzel Washington, Matthew McConaughey or any of the lads in Narcos, they’ve all done it. Like the many movies it’s appeared in the instantly recognisible Coach jacket is indeed an American classic and this version from The North Face is something of a show-stopper too. Lightweight and with TNF logos in all the right places it’s WindWall technology will keep rain off whilst the detailing on those pockets will have all your mates wishing that they’d got one too. So go and get yours from Grants 1856 before they all do.
