My waist coat collection has grown larger after last weeks trip to the newly redesigned 3rd floor of the Rhinelander Mansion in NYC. I picked up this piece from RRL and am extremely pleased with the quality and construction.
The shell fabric is a heavy ottoman that is washed down to give it that authentic, RRL vintage look. The lining is a mix of wool/poly that is thick enough to cut the wind, yet the wearer will not over-heat if worn below deck. Front closers are the standard RRL shanks and the side closers are a vintage inspired latch. Top it all off with the U.S. DECK screen print on the back yolk and one will feel as if they are under the command of Vice Admiral Stockdale when wearing this deck vest.
