5/15 Newsletter: The Nor’Easter Jacket & Miss Print Leggings

The Nor'Easter Jacket

If you live in New England, certainly you’ve heard of Paul Lewandowski, better known as “The Paul Bunyan of Coastal Maine” — a behemoth of a man, with a great, hoary beard crusted in sea salt and an ever-faithful, 40-foot-tall Dalmatian at his side. His legend grows by the day:

  • Taller than the tallest lighthouse!
  • Swims to Nova Scotia every morning!
  • Can eat 1,000 lobster rolls in a sitting!
  • Saved Kennebunkport from the dreaded 100-foot Halibut!
  • Designed the Nor’Easter Jacket!

If you have any other Lewandowski tales to tell, post them here. Meanwhile, about that most recent feat: Paul’s extraordinary new jacket (seen below on a normal-sized man) is as handsome as it is rugged. Truly a mortal foe of foul weather.

The Nor'Easter Jacket

Paul wanted to create a jacket tough enough to withstand the wettest, windiest, all-around crummiest conditions, but he also aimed to improve on the aesthetics of the traditional yellow raincoat, which makes you look “like you just walked off a box of frozen fish sticks.” (Apologies to the Gorton’s Fisherman.)

The Nor'Easter Jacket

Here’s what he came up with:

  • Made from water-resistant waxed cotton.
  • Cinch-able brimmed hood, lined with urethane-coated nylon taffeta.
  • Double-slider antique brass zipper, opens from the top or bottom.
  • Snap-fastened storm flap for zipper coverage.
  • Hand pockets with snap-fastened flaps and welts that fold over to self-seal.
  • Yellow contrast stripes inspired by lobster buoys.

Help the Nor’Easter reach its crowdfunding goal and save up to 30%. If you’re not yet convinced that this a good idea, perhaps Paul can sway you in this brief video.

This Is N̶o̶t̶ A Miss Print

Our own Lana Hogue has taken the design concept from her Miss Print Skirt and created a riotously colorful pair of leggings. What will your Miss Print Leggings look like, exactly? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see.

Miss Print Leggings

That’s because each pair is unique — a combination of spare fabric, mistint paint, and a plethora of bold and often-overlapping screen prints. Our local screen printer is absolutely delighted to ignore strict color and placement restrictions once in a while, so let’s not disappoint him.
