How much do you really know about the clothes you wear? About what goes into creating the fabrics, dying them, achieving the perfect textures, and then bringing it all together for the perfect fit? I think it’s fair to assume that the vast majority of the world doesn’t stop to think about any of that. Cotton is cotton. Cashmere is soft. ‘Smart fabrics’ are the future. And that last point is true but with the Graphene Down Jacket by Proof ($168) you’ll at least know a little more about what you’re wearing after reading this article.
Graphene is one of the lightest fabrics known to man but it’s also stronger than steel. Physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for their groundbreaking research into Graphene. They found that the highest-quality graphene was actually remarkably easy to isolate while it ‘showed a greater ability to distribute force from an impact than any known material’ (10x that of steel). This jacket is also as soft as down? Did that get mentioned yet?
The Proof Graphene Down Jacket ($168) is available at Huckberry in two stylish colors, Navy and Olive. Let’s check it out:
