The Harrington Jacket
So that Harrington jacket was therefore only “our” Harrington jacket and we did it for a precise choice of identification in a sub-cultural trend that needed that piece of clothing.
The Harrington was made from a polycotton fabric and finished with the traditional tartan fabric lining. The customized metal zip puller added an extra touch to the first Three Stroke Productions designer jacket. A few years later, when the production of outerwear was moved to Italy, our Harringtons would be made available in many more variations, both cottony and nylon, both plain and checked, both lined and unlined.
The Grant Jacket
Following our involvement in the subcultural scene along with our growing expertise, between 2007 and 2009 we designed a consistent range of jackets where the influence of the “scooterist” style was complimented by a selection of high quality next generation fabrics. It’s the case of our “Speedo” and “Racer” jackets to name a couple of them. Our first leather jacket called “Ferryman” was launched during AW2008.
It was made from genuine cow leather and featured a traditional tartan lining. Our resin coated canvas jacket “Dean” is also dated AW2008. The Dean jacket definetly shows a genuine casual look and was highly appreciated by football lads across Europe.
During those years the Three Stroke Productions collections experienced a strong growth in the choice and in the treatment of the fabrics and in the care for the details while managing to keep alive the flavour of it’s early days.
Peacots and Duffels
Even if we, managers of the brand were supposed to be the first consumers of the goods we produced, we could only host a limited number of Three Stroke Productions pieces of clothing in our wardrobes. No doubt one of them is the Derby jacket: due to it’s perfect fit, and overall quality and look we re still in love with that jacket which is often proudly worn by members of our crew even after more than 10 years. The feeling of owning and using with full satisfaction a ten or more years old jacket is uncomparable and that is exactly one of the main features we aspire the garments we make to show.

The Field Jacket
The years across 2010 were exceptionally fruitful and on top of our woolen range of coats we began to develop our versions of the iconic Field Jacket, the classic four-pocket jacket which we made in different variations.
The Field Jacket was the perfect all around jacket: a garment rich in tradition but worn by both adults and younger lads. Our favorite one was called “Sidecar” jacket and was made from cloth with corduroy inserts. The “Sidecar” jacket was followed by several variations including the “Elvis” that was made from waterproof polyester.
In 2016 we started testing garment dyed processes which led us to create beautiful summer versions of our Field Jacket.
The garment dyeng technique led us to develop a wide range of combat shorts and overshirts that definetly represent our trademark for the Summer collections. But this is another story.. One of our camo field jackets was worn by Twisted Wheel frontman Jonny Brown during the Liam Gallagher European Tour in early 2020.
The Fortis Jacket
The Fortis London Project
Originally introduced in AW2019, the Frontier is a 2 in 1 jacket consisting in a softshell that becomes a colourful puffer.
It features five front heat sealed zipper pockets plus two zipper pockets on the puffer side.
The new Njord
Njord was the god of wind, seafarers, coasts and inland waters. He was also associated with crop fertility, fishing and wealth. He was invoked by the Vikings before setting out on sea voyages, but also hunting and fishing expeditions.
We ve always had a weak for mithology and we often name our garments after deities.
Protection from wind and rains is the main feature of this jacket so we assumed Njord would fit perfectly as a name.
Highlight of our AW2021 collection is then the new edition of the Njord jacket, which is a rubberized raincoat with a silver-colored quilt and enriched by a balaclava finished by a “two swords” fortis print on both sides, in the inside pocket. Compared to the first version it is softer but it is padded therefore more comfortable and warm.
Basically we make clothes that we love: from our reinterpretation of iconic coats to the design of new models that are the result of a gradual acquirement of experience and knowledge.
Along the years we have experimented a lot and made many mistakes, we have talked with specialists in the industry to whom we have entrusted our designs and our projects, we have collaborated with independent designers as a requirement for confrontation and exchange at 360 degrees.
In the philosophy of the brand there is a continuous search to combine what we like with what our audience needs. All this comes thanks to the consolidation of working relationships with some of the best suppliers in this industry. We believe in them as they believe in us in order to create jackets that give full satisfaction to the those that wear them.
These are times in which functionality and essentiality are the main features but always within an aesthetic code that knows how to mix tradition with innovation as we have always done and as always we will and a desire to stand.
