Devium’s limited edition Gene Vintage Cord Jacket is Devium's unique take on the classic cord trucker, and features deadstock corduroy fabric made 50 years ago on the Shenandoah River in Waynesboro, Virginia. With unique detailing, understated trims, and a surprise or two, this jacket is destined to be worn most days in most seasons. In two colors so perfect, you’ll want them both.
Why the “Gene” jacket? The name pays homage to Gene Clark, the prolific singer/songwriter who took The Byrds to success. He famously quit the band when he developed a fear of flying and other assorted neuroses. His first solo album, No Other, was released in 1974 with Clark wholly unconcerned about radio airplay, stadium sing-alongs, or anything else that could please a record label. Rolling Stone magazine covered the album’s Deluxe Reissue in late 2019, positing that Clark’s songs “aren’t played, as much as unfurled.” Clark was buried in Tipton, Missouri at 46 beneath an epitaph that simply reads No Other.
