Garments that live and age with you
Ten C's Forever Collection
Researched, revised, and improved
Ten-C is true to values like craftsmanship which develops into actions to create garments that last all your life – therefore Ten C only produces quality products and encourages to care for them in order to last.
Ten C offers a forever collection, which is a selection of coats which have been in collection for some time and will not go as they are each designed to serve a purpose. These coats have been researched, revised, and improved. Along the years these are made more practical with technical features to reach the ultimate comfort while wearing, taking the climate and one’s daily activities and movements into consideration. Within this collection, we have made our own selection at Pauw. These are the US Army Field Jacket, the Cyclone Parka, the Car Coat and the Core Parka, which all have their origin, stories, and reason for existence.
In 1943 the US Army Field Jacket was introduced for the first time. It was revised in 1951 – including a front zip, press stud closure, drawstring waist and rolled up hood in the collar pocket – a revision that is similar to the version of 1965. This version was used for its reason of existence: its widely usage by the United States Forces during the Vietnam war.
The fabric used adapts to your body and your use, going from its stiffness to a softer material, which transforms into your own character.
The shape of the Cyclone Parka was inspired by the late 1960’s German snorkel parka, one that is slimmer fitted. The pocket and hood features refer to the Tempest Anorak, but have been adjusted to fit a slightly narrower set-in sleeve.
The Car Coat is based on the classic Mac style raincoat. The coat is made of Ten C’s exclusive fabric – OJJ – the Original Japanese Jersey. The fabric is produced exclusively in Japan and later cut, sewn and dyed by Ten C in Italy. The characteristics of the fabric include moulding to the wearer. The fabric used adapts to your body and your use, going from its stiffness to a softer material, which transforms into your own character.
OJJ - Original Japanese Jersey
The Core Parka is crafted in Ten C’s unique knitted “Polyester/Nylon” (OJJ) blend. Features a front zipper with press stud placket, two large front pockets, a high-cut collar, visor hood with drawstring and a drawcord at hem.
These four coats are carefully selected by us. All these items are part of the forever collection as they are meant and created to last forever, to live and age with you.
