Itemized: Folk Riding Jacket

Every week a different FADER staff member will pick a clothing item or accessory that he or she has lately been spending a lot of time with—or would like to—and write a little love letter to it. We would’ve done a column on who we’re dating but that seemed a little bit much. This week Scott Wright writes about the Folk riding jacket.


When I was a boy the most important thing about any potential new coat was how many pockets it had. My best was a grey and black ski jacket with 17 separate hidey-holes. Not much has changed since then and thankfully shops full of heritage-inspired country attire have helped feed my multi-pocket habit. Folk make interesting clothes with funny little details and they are never shy of a pocket or two. I bought this jacket a couple of months ago and despite it being the middle of summer, you will rarely see me out of it. I am taunting autumn into existence. It's a riding jacket, which is perfect for me because even though I've never so much as touched a horse, I think those horse riding guys look pretty cool. It's made from thick navy "8 oz Jigger Dyed Twill" and has a neat little shawl collar so I don't look too much like I'm auditioning for a North Korean road gang. Most importantly there are pockets. Lots. Seven at least. Now that I’ve stopped collecting football stickers and carrying around Legos, I don't have much to put in them, but their presence reassures me. They provide me with options.
