History In The Making

“The Vice” Jacket in Moleskin is inspired by a French Army “Shore Jacket” of the 40’s and 50’s, but with updates to the cut that create a more tailored fit. For this latest iteration of the Vice, we developed a high tension 100% cotton Moleskin fabric with a small mill in Okayama, Japan. 

Moleskin has its earliest origins in medieval Europe, where the fabric was first made to be used by farmers and hunters who needed clothing that was comfortable, warm, durable, and wind resistant. Moleskin has been used periodically ever since, most notably in the French Army jackets of the 40’s and 50’s, and in shirts and jackets in the 70’s. Moleskin is a fabric that is rarely seen today and is not widely available. We wanted to bring back this fabric which is highly sought after by vintage collectors. We were not satisfied by merely reproducing this vintage material, so in true Kato form, we made a few subtle adjustments to further improve durability, comfort, and finish. The thread count and density of the fabric was increased to improve durability. This higher tension also gives the finish of the Moleskin a deeper luster that will enhance the unique aging qualities of this jacket. This is a piece we have taken from the past to the present and made to last long into the future.
