Tender has its roots in antique workwear and machinery, especially from the Great British Steam Age. An important face of Tender’s English–made clothing is the nurture which is put into the clothes: in their research, design, manufacture, and wear. Tender’s goal is for the owner to live with their clothes, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell.
The Type 941Turvy Compass Pocket Jacket is based on the Compass Pocket Shirt, spun around by 90° so that the tails join at the front and back of the jacket, and the large curved pockets sit all the way across each side of the body.
The jacket body panels are fully lined with cotton satin curtain lining, but the sleeves are unlined to keep them light and so that they can easily be rolled up.The pocket panels are cut as circles (marked out with a compass) and folded in half.
Hadal Blue Beekeeper’s Cotton Calico Twill Turvy Compass Pocket Jacket
The Hadal Zone, named for the Greek underworld, Hades, is the deepest oceanic zone, below the Sunlight Zone, the Twilight Zone, the Midnight Zone and the Abyss. Hadal blue and hadal green are the deepest colours achievable through reactive dyeing, darker than any natural dye. As with natural dyeing, though, the whole garment is dyed after sewing, showing subtle variations in tone and depth between different fabrics and garment constructions.
