CPO Jacket | Smoke Gray Tweed

$ 1,600.00

Since 1968, the CPO jacket has been an iconic element of the Nantucket wardrobe. Often layered with a sweater and button-down, the CPO is Nantucket’s answer to a sports coat. Featuring our handwoven wool tweed fabric created in our Main Street weaving studio and lined with colorful Liberty of London pima cotton fabric, each jacket is one-of-a-kind. Known both for their elegance and their heirloom-quality construction, the CPO jacket gets better with age and is proudly collected by those who value their originality.

Handsewn for over fifty years by renowned German seamstress Lia Marks, the CPO jackett was inspired by the classic shirt jacket often worn by Chief Petty Officers in the Navy. Today, we honor the legacy of Lia Marks, using the same patterns and techniques to create a new generation CPOs.

Our tweed is crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.

Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.

Next they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.

Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.
