We first worked with Heat Straps USA and Nicks Handmade Boots on the Patriot Jacket, in 2022.
This is the "countdown" graphic from Nicks Handmade Boots.
The first offering is closed, but there is a good chance another is coming.
Jordan and Tyler Lang, the founders of Heat Straps, are brothers and Firefighters in Jersey City, New Jersey (or maybe ####ing New Jersey, if you're a born-Jersey boy). Jordan and Tyler have been working with Nicks Handmade Boots to create a 100% American Jacket with a Canvas outer, Wickett and Craig Leather collar and our Lynx Pattern Fabric inside. The offering of The Patriot Jacket is being led by Nicks, who is expected to announce Saturday, 13 August, 2022, I think the announcement is scheduled for 9AM Pacific time.
