Oil Men

Whillas & Gunn take a nod from the Aussie bush and wax it up.

It’s getting colder and wetter as the days get shorter and that means relying on your garments of the wax cotton variety. This quilted version, from Whillas & Gunn, boasts a knit shawl collar and brass zip front to keep the cold at bay. Designer Richie Whillas bases much of his collection on the archives of the old family business, Kakadu, an Australian outerwear company with a cowboy-ish bent that got its start oiling and waxing any fabric they could get their hands on. Whillas has trimmed down the fits but retained the functionality that made these jackets popular in the Aussie bush in the first place. Seattle’s Blackbird is your ticket down under.
