3sixteen's fourth annual collaboration with Schott NYC brings a new leather for this release.

The leather is a custom tannage made exclusively for this project by Horween Leather Company in Chicago and is a tea-core chromexcel horsehide that starts out black but exhibits brown undertones as it’s worn. The leather has been heavily milled to give it a softer, more supple hand and to bring out those brown undertones. The chromexcel that you usually see in the wild has heavy pull-up and is shiny; this leather has a more weathered appearance with beautiful complexity of color, and will continue to age over time.

What’s new for the season is this modified A-2 flight jacket. 3sixteen sat down with Schott for an afternoon and went through their military archives to find a fit that fell perfectly in line with 3sixteen’s aesthetic, and came across one which they loved. The arms are slim, and the body has been slightly lengthened without negatively affecting the higher-waisted look that a flight jacket should have. 3sixteen chose to include hidden side entries to the front flap pockets for the sake of practicality, and also added a custom sheepskin collar that is detachable should the wearer want a cleaner look.

This season, 3sixteen have chosen to implement nickel hardware for a bit more contrast. The zipper pulls have been updated to a stirrup shape which mirrors the pulls you’d find on their jackets and hoodies. Both jackets are lined with a Japanese printed twill and bemberg in the sleeves; as the leather is quite heavy, they wanted to ensure that the lining would not add further to the bulkiness of the jacket. The liner is what they call “drunk plaid” and while it looks like a traditional tartan typical of many leather jacket linings, upon closer inspection you’ll see a fun deviation.
