Duck vest

Using found materials that reflect a nostalgia for Britain’s past, with both adoration and irreverence, Adam Jones plays with the banality and kitsch of his homeland.

One of a kind

Product story

Adam Jones’ duck vest is made using a vintage Irish tea towel from the 1960s, that feels as emblematic of a grandmother’s kitchen as it does a classic countryside painting one might find in a local pub. A certain duality or contradiction is often part of Jones’ garments, which use a kind of DIY ethos that places punks and the Women’s Institute into one category. 

Manufacturing story

Garments are designed and made in London using found vintage materials, often everyday staples such as tea towels or bar towels and vintage blankets. Recontextualised as clothing, they mix banality with play.
