What more can be said about COMUNE and how sophisticated these fuckers are. Dudes don't squeak around in sneakers, they kick around in boots and keep their pant cuffs rolled up to keep their raw denim clean. It's a monochromatic world, where tobacco is rolled or packed into pipes. Hair is kept combed and crispy. Their gear is rugged and their shades are dark.
They are more than a clothing company, they are a movement that carries a certain "bad-to-the-bone" attitude. They like things that are made of metal or wood or leather and dream of a world before plastic. A time when things were tied down, a time before zippers, when buttons were still good enough, when wool was real and still smelled like sheep. Razors were actual blades, not some flimsy contraption made by a pen company. Their office probably has a rotary phone and they come to work on motorcycles. Not just any bike either, but the ones that rumble your grundle and rattle your brain and peel you right off if you don't hold on tight.
They are The COMUNE.All that being said, we would like to shine the POTW spotlight on their new Bernard jacket. This is some solid outerwear, rugged enough for a bear to wear. In fact, it even carries its name. Bernard comes from the old Germanic compound Bern-hard, meaning "bear-hardy" or "brave as a bear", so it's no surprise they called this jacket the Bernard. What was that, you want another little nugget of knowledge that happily coincides with the Bernard jacket? Coming right up! St. Bernard of Menthon is the patron saint of mountaineers, after whom the St. Bernard dog is named. Betcha didn't know that one either, did ya?
Black waxed canvas for added water-resistance. The Bernard is a military-inspired hooded parka with adjustable length, it can be worn down in the "French Military" style or tucked up for a mid-length fit. It also has a fully removable insulated liner. This jacket is rugged timeless simplicity at its best. If you're only going to have one jacket, this is it!
