Jackets are the most crucial part of any stylish winter wardrobe, and they can make any outfit. That’s why this season we have made sure to have a vast range of jackets to ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for. We have just this week introduced a new outwear specialist to our range, which is now available both online and in store. Wellensteyn is our new brand which specialises completely on providing stylish and durable outwear for the season.
The brand began over 60 years in Germany, when creator Adolf Wuttke began creating a new generation of durable rugged jackets designed for the workers of the shipyards in Germany. The jackets were water resistant suitable for work and aimed to protect the wearer from some of the toughest elements.
Today Wellensteyn is the largest premium jacket brand in Germany, and its popularity has grown worldwide. The designs of the brand have evolved but constantly keep touch with the traditional rugged style, but use technical innovation and engineering to create exceptionally high quality products. The quality and durability has not declined either but evolved even further creating ‘a fusion of function and fashion’.
Our Wellensteyn jackets available here at Northern Threads are the Legends jacket and the Retro jacket. Both jackets focus on the rugged vintage styling, designed with added retro details to create a recognisable look. The Legends Jacket is available in Navy and Brown and features the signature worn look, with stitched elbow patches and flap pockets. Spray techniques are used to create the signature vintage look in the jacket, along with the different gradients of colour throughout.
The Retro Jacket is available in 3 unique colours Army Green, Dark Red and Dark Grey it features front chest pockets and a draw string hood to keep in warmth. Both jackets are also finished with signature Wellensteyn branding.
