Cottonopolis Catalina jacket

May 2, 2014

More tasty outerwear and what the lads from Oi Polloi consider a ‘long lost classic’. During a trek around North America in the early 90s, Oi Polloi bossman, Nigel came across a jacket the likes of which he’d never seen before – part bomber jacket, part golf jacket, part something new entirely.

It was during a factory visit years later that the jacket’s true identity was revealed – it was a style called a Catalina, and it was popular during the 60s and 70s. Fast forward to present day and Oi Polloi now present their own version of this jacket, under their in-house Cottonopolis label.

Made in Bolton (with fabric from Rochdale) by the same people who make jackets for Nepenthes, it’s a lightweight, summer-friendly jacket. Features include a ribbed bomber collar, hem and cuffs, two-way zip fastening with three button storm flap and a pair of lower front pockets, with a further one inside.
