Free Flat Friday: The Nor’Easter Jacket

Betabrand_FFF_Printed_Tank

Happy Free Flat Friday, everyone!

Today, I would like to share with you the artwork for the Nor’Easter Jacket, A recent Think Tank project by Paul Lewandowski that was successfully crowdfunded last month. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out the photos of the product on our website! Made in the USA with american-made waxed cotton, antique brass hardware, and leather draw cords, it’s a solidly built piece of clothing that is going to last for years.

If you have some ideas of your own for a parka-type silhouette, then please feel free to download the AI file, and have fun tweaking the design! There’s plenty here to get you started, and when you’re finished with your new design, share it with us via the Betabrand Think Tank submission page and let’s work together to bring your design to life!


I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, and look forward to working together!

-Steven

Steven B. Wheeler

Lead Designer at Betabrand
Steven B. Wheeler got his start in the fashion at an early age, spending countless hours hunched over his mother's Kenmore sewing machine when he quite honestly should have been doing his homework.

Upon graduation from high school, Steven became an apprentice tailor, where he spent three years learning custom garment creation, pattern drafting, and alterations. He was introduced to old-world techniques, and fell in love with all the unseen engineering that goes into a well-tailored garment.

Steven moved to San Francisco in 2003, simultaneously building an alterations and custom apparel business while earning his BFA in Menswear Design. Since then, Steven has designed apparel for companies both large and small before embarking on his most recent comedic misadventure as a designer at Betabrand.

He continues to maintain an optimistic outlook on life despite this last fact.
