The Phantom Collection, our collaboration with designer Jon Contino, was inspired by the iconic bomber squadrons of WWII that bore names like the Red Devils, Thunderbirds and Bomber Barons. Despite the inherent danger and grimness of the task at hand, these squads brought a spark of charisma and wit to their assignments with intimidating nicknames and colorful, vivid iconography. Jon's "Phantom Squadron" is meant to evoke a creeping dread in the enemy. Once you hear the dull drone of engines in the distance, it's already too late; The Phantom has struck when you least expected it. Throughout this collection, you will find Jon's hand-drawn designs and lettering featured on each piece, visually telling the story of the famed and feared Phantoms.
Developed in the later stages of WWII at the request of it's namesake, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Ike Jacket is renowned for its versatility. Legend has it that Eisenhower admired the waist-cropped style of the iconic British battle jacket, and wanted to replicate that functionality "but with more distinctive style." Originally made from an 18oz olive drab wool, our version of the Ike features a more modern fit, and is crafted from a xxoz dark denim. With a lining featuring original illustrations and lettering by designer Jon Contino, the Phantom Collection Ike Jacket is sure to be one of the most original pieces in any man's wardrobe. Furthermore, due to its durable American made construction, this jacket will last you for years to come.
