Suit up with the TAD Tracer Jacket and create a formidable presence against whatever stands in your way.
The samurai were an elite class of noble warriors. Their imposing armour was built to enlarge their presence and intimidate their enemies. It also served a very distinct functional purpose. Unlike the garb worn by European knights, samurai uniforms were extremely modular to enhance speed and mobility.
By their standards, a good suit had to be sturdy, yet flexible enough to allow its wearer free movement in the battlefield. The TAD Tracer Jacket mirrors the protective shield that these legendary warriors donned during times of war. This first run, limited edition Tracer features a unique double face stretch fabric made on a special knitting machine in Italy.
The internal polyester brushed side keeps you warm and dry, while the external Merino wool blend face provides an efficient, natural moisture management system. Sleekly structured and durable, TAD's strategically placed nylon reinforcements were inspired from the samurai’s impressive winged shoulders and massive overvestand act as additional protection.
Behind each level, much like the original layers built into their suits, we integrated concealed, secure pockets behind the front hand pockets and bicep pockets.
