This unisex jacket is the highlight of this fall collection. Featuring inverted pleat patch pockets, buttons on the cuffs, double stitched seams for durability and a military-inspired double front closure to keep out the wind during colder times. Crafted from an organic twill with an amazing stonewash effect we achieve through garment dyeing. To make the sewing threads more resistant to this treatment, we use lyocell yarn. The buttons are from corozo, which is carved from the nut of the tagua tree. The soft yet sturdy twill is made from 60% cotton & 40% lyocell.

  • Two pleated chest pockets
  • Sleeve cuffs with buttons
  • Double front closure
  • Plant-based buttons, threads and labels
  • 60% cotton, 40% lyocell twill

By paying statiegeld (deposit), which will be refunded at the end of use, you ensure that this item becomes 100% circular and not end up as textile waste. When you add this item to your cart, the statiegeld will automatically be charged.

Where are your garments produced?
In our very own atelier: the NO-Kledingfabriek! Our first principle is "local", meaning we produce every garment with open doors, right around the corner. Want to take a look? Book your visit here.

Are your garments sustainable?
New Optimist makes and designs all garments to make as little pollution and waste as possible, and that it lasts as long as possible: we also offer free repair service when needed.
New Optimist always chooses materials so that the garment can eventually be recycled into new yarn at the end of life.

Will sizes or styles be restocked?
Sometimes! Because we try to make as little waste as possible, that means we're sometimes a little short in stock.
It's also possible we'll receive some sizes later than planned, or that some garments are still under construction in our atelier.

You can shoot us a chat message below or an email if you're waiting on a certain style, so we can keep you posted when it's available again!

Can I try your items on in-store?
Of course you can! We're located in Amsterdam West, you can book a timeslot to visit our Atelier Store here.


Our optimism to change the fashion industry starts right in the heart of Amsterdam. Meet the makers. Let them show you how we bring back the joy of making garments.


Based on the first circular design principle (do not create waste or pollution) we use only organic and or recycled materials. And yes, also our labels, buttons and elastics are plant-based.
