Why: The very first Tom Beckbe product made and still our best seller, we designed the Tensaw Jacket to be functional, stylish, and uniquely American. We wanted a jacket that was rugged enough to work as a true hunting jacket but also stylish enough to wear to the office and around town. The result of that effort was the Tensaw. It has a distinctive silhouette with set-in sleeves and a standing collar. Constructed from a waxed shelter cloth, we have been manufacturing Tensaws in the United States since 2015.
Who: Originally designed for discerning sportsmen who wanted to buck the trend of jackets from familiar names made in far off places, the Tensaw has fans who never venture into the field but enjoy its rugged utility and style.
Where: Named for one of the five rivers that comprise the fabled Mobile-Tensaw Delta in lower Alabama, the Tensaw Jacket is at home in a duck blind, walking open prairies in fall, on horseback, at your local watering hole, and during a morning commute.
Fit: The Tensaw has our trademark classic fit, which sits right between the relaxed, baggy fits of yesterday and slim / tailored fits. The Tensaw is designed to be flattering but not restrictive, with gusseted underarms and a bi-swing back with a length that hits mid-thigh.
