Birmingham’s Dark Circle present their new workwear inspired cut & sew Dark MFG Co. jacket.
100% manufactured in the UK, the Dark MFG Co. jacket takes inspiration from Chore Coats with its hard wearing cotton drill material and oversized buttons. Fabrics have been manufactured in Manchester, with the buttons being crafted in the Midlands, all coming together to be cut and sewn in Birmingham’s Garment District. It’s a UK affair from start to end.
I’ll put my hands up here and acknowledge that although we do our best to support independent UK brands (that we feel are worth supporting), we don’t always notice all of them and a few slip through our nets. We’re only human after all. Dark Circle is one who have been doing great things lately and have somehow slipped off our radar since 2011, so today we’re righting wrongs and correcting this oversight. This Dark MFG Co. jacket is a great example of streetwear done well, especially for a small UK brand, mixing the cultures of streetwear and their love for Coach Jackets with menswear’s love for a Chore Coat.
Head over to Dark Circle where you can pick one up, but be warned, these are extremely limited and less than 20 have been produced.
