From Montreal-based Raised by Wolves comes their Lunar Cycle Varsity Jacket for F/W ’12.

It’s made in the good ol’ US of A by Ebbets Field Flannels and features felt appliqué patches and letterings. The melton wool body sits well with the leather sleeves while the interior of the body is Ripstop NyCo MultiCam lined.
