Heritage Research – Artillery, mens navy hickory stripe linen jacket. The tailored jacket is based on an 1860’s Union Naval officers uniform sack coat worn aboard the first iron-clad warships used during the American Civil War. The first battle between ironclads occurred in 1862 between the Monitor and the Virginia. The two ironclads repeatedly tried to ram one another while shells bounced off their armour. The battle attracted attention worldwide, making it clear that the wooden warship was now out of date, with the ironclads destroying them easily. The jacket features a fluted bluff pocket with invisible stitching, shank cuffs, shawl collar with loop fastening, horn buttons, curved cut front hem and a single centre vent. Internally the jacket is lined in ecru cotton and finished with a single chest pocket. Heritage Research clothing has been compiled for those who desire an authentic garment from a specific period but want a contemporary cut and aesthetic. That is, a garment which in design, components, and quality matches the original garment but can be assimilated into a modern wardrobe. The nostalgia behind these styles is what makes them attractive. They were born out of a time of necessity, designed for a specific purpose - to function and protect under adverse and challenging conditions. Since then they have become timeless fashion items, appealing to a rugged utilitarian image. Attention to authenticity, quality and history is the Heritage Research ethos.
