Our Herringbone Bush Coverall is back in stock! Inspired by the Tektite II research program in May of 1970. They are made in small-batch Japanese cotton herringbone. The cuffs and trims are a very special Bedford weave.
The Herringbone cloth gets its name from the resemblance the fabric has with the skeleton of a herring fish. The fabric has a distinctive V-shaped weaving pattern usually found in twill fabric.
During and after World War II, several militaries had fatigue-duty uniforms made from cotton in this weave. In the United States they were often called HBTs (Herringbone twill uniform).
