Rowing Blazers x Jams World Men's "Painted" Corduroy Jacket
In spending some time at the Jams World archive in Honolulu, we came across this beautiful deadstock fabric. A very soft cordurouy with a printed paint effect, Jams has had this fabric since the '80s or '90s. We fell in love.

Care instructions: Dry clean only.
This jacket has a modern cut.
Famous in the '80s and '90s for its ubiquitous shorts, "Fresh Prince" color palette, cryptic slogans, and neon colorblock nylon that inspired brands ranging from Polo to Stussy to Chanel, Jams World is based in Honolulu, where the company was founded in 1964. "I've been obsessed with Jams World for years," says Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson. "I collect their iconic pieces from the '90s: the legionnaire hats, the nylon windbreakers, the printed shirts, of course the shorts. Last year, I spent a week in their archives and hanging out with the owners, Pua and Heather (Pua's dad started the brand!). It was mind blowing. The stuff in their archives is inspiration for a hundred collections. The attitude, the sense of color, the use of language on some of the pieces... it all really resonates with me. And you can see so clearly how they encapsulated the zeitgest and also see how clearly other brands were looking at what Jams was doing in the '90s. It's an honor to work with Jams on this."
