#115 - Men’s US Army Field Jacket with embroidery “Felix the Cat“ – one of one877 Workshop
Unique one – size S
Vintage US Army Camo Field Jacket with a chain stitch embroidered “Felix the Cat“ patch and a “No bad days“ lettering on the back and freemotion embroidered lightning bolt on the front.
The embroidery is stitched with a rare chain stitching machine from 1920 or a freemotion machine from 1950. Both machines are operated freehand by moving the fabric under the needle – we literally draw stitched lines on the fabric. These machines were used from 1845 to 1980 for customizing bowling shirts, varsity jackets, cheerleader sweaters or biker vests as well as for embroidering elaborate patterns on uniforms, gowns and draperies. In motorsports large advertising slogans were stitched on the back of the racing team’s overalls. Nowadays this work is done by computer operated embroidery machines. Our embroidery is unique with a charming handcrafted look and feel - a computer can’t produce this special look.Materials
