It’s weatherproof, edgy with just a touch of attitude, it’s got a broad stand-up collar, a full front storm flap, all the right pockets, heavy duty hardware and the best materials we could find.

We built this jacket to celebrate the fact that we have been serving Mariners for 75 years — we wanted to do something lasting that would make our founder proud. We have been in the same old creaky building in historic Marblehead — with the same old white-oak check out desk since 1938.
The Wood Box’ — they say it’s worth a trip. Our style is traditional but with a fresh edge. The offset front zipper is our way to harken back to a day when Mariners only wore double-breasted jackets, but when you button up the storm flap, she buttons right up the center. Its got style and lots of it, and its got some shape too. I have personally cranked on a winch handle in it and you can’t beat the freedom afforded by the action back shoulders and the double bottom vent. When it gets cool, you will find two brass vent snaps positioned at the ready so you can block the breeze with ease. We prefer our boats wooden and our materials traditional– and that’s what we used here.
Speaking of pockets, we put some thought into all five of them. On the chest you’ll find a handy stash pocket that’s engineered for your mobile device. Yes we tried to make perfectly functional.

Often, suits are worn, as is traditional, with a collared shirt and necktie. The suit was custom made to the measurements, taste, and style of the man.
The current styles were founded in the industrial revolution during the late 18th century that sharply changed the elaborately embroidered and jewelled formal clothing into the simpler clothing of the British Regency period, which gradually evolved to the stark formality of the Victorian era. Brooks Brothers is generally credited with first offering the “ready-to-wear” suit, a suit which was sold already manufactured and sized, ready to be tailored.
