About the TSPTR Zip Thru Mojave Smock
The TSPTR Zip Thru Mojave Smock is inspired by the surplus US Navy Gunner Smocks which were appropriated by California’s Dry Lake Hot Rodders as functional racing jackets, with the originals, which came in white, overdyed in a variety of colours. These smocks also became a staple for surfers on the West Coast of California in the early 60s, readily available from second hand and military surplus shops, they were easy flexible, easy to remove pieces that were regularly seen during the first and last light of the day on the beach.
The original US Navy Gunner Smock was first made by the Zielinski Company in the 1930s and came in white denim. Later versions, such as those seen in photographs from the Second World War, were indigo dyed. Its design was intended to give its wearer a wide range of movement and TSPTR have adapted the ergonomics of the original garment to into a contemporary wardrobe. Some of the details in this adaptation include a flatweave front, rear adjusters with drawstring at hem and cuffs and a hood.
