CARLOS 3 & OK41

Sorry for the title……these name might sounds familiar only to some POST O’ALLS fans……

These are some work jacket model names……………came to my mind when I was thinking about

some good work  jackets for these “shorts – only” days.

 

CARLOS 3

These are named after our late fabric cutter…..Carlos Chauca, and  it is in version 3 now.

I wanted a plain 2 pocket  work jacket + some extra flavor……then came up with 2 lower pockets plus one small pocket above the right lower pocket.

Here’s a vintage POST O’ALLS jacket from ’96, which first featured “the pocket”.

OK41 is a variation of OK40, which has its roots in #1107 jacket from mid ’90s.

All of these simple 2 pocket work jackets are inspired by vintage cost-cutting 2 pocket work jacket produced under WW2 War restriction.

Yet, OK41 has longer length, and more importantly, it has a vent in the back.

I kinda like its slight fukiness or friction when worn with shorts…….for unknown reason. ( Takeshi )

Looks like they copied some Japanese (?) “work-inspired” whatever……then put FAKE POST O’ALLS label on them. ( Takeshi )
