Our first delivery from Brown's Beach features a range of jackets, vests and accessories in their most iconic styles and we are excited to offer the brand for the first time in Melbourne.
New for this season is the Red colour option available across a range of products.
The Japanese have also put an interesting spin on the iconic Type 2 style denim jacket with a Brown's Beach style Type 2 that we couldn't pass up and has already been a hit in the store.
View the collection below with extra detailed photography and measurements on the product page and also check the 'Read More' link to visit Heddels for some further information on the history of Brown's Beach.
The origins of Brown's Beach date back to 1901 in Worcester, Massachusetts where William W Brown wagered the success of his new company on the functionality of its fabric. The material was knitted from a two-ply blend of 30 percent cotton and 70 percent recycled wool and was water-resistant, unshrinkable, essentially untearable, surprisingly warm and incredibly comfortable — perfect for use in inclement weather.
What’s more, Brown’s use of reclaimed wool allowed the outerwear to be sold at competitive prices.
In 2010 Mikiharu Tsujita of Fullcount acquired the rights to the brand and re-invigorated this once classic American icon to the exact detail and Japanese standards bringing the fabric back to life in both classic and modern interpretations.
