The Dread and Fear of Kings Launches Echelon Jacket

Tuesday, December 12th, 2023

Although just launching a few months ago, new products are already coming off the line for The Dread and Fear of Kings including the Echelon Jacket.

The DFK team ran me through a line review during last weekend’s Grand Opening of Scottsdale Tactical.

Just a quick note, the clothing and accessories do not include helmets or armor; the room we met in is located in Haley Strategic Partners which resembles a museum as much as a business.

Made in Italy, the Echelon jacket is inspired by the classic World War II Tanker Jacket with its stand up collar. It’s made from Loro Piana wool cashmere blend and lined with Italian silk.

It doesn’t ride up and hangs low enough to cover anything you’re carrying at your waistline. Additionally, the cuffs and collar are elasticized to keep warmth in.

In addition to two handwarmer pockets, the Echelon incorporates zippered bicep pockets as well as articulated and reinforced elbows.

I rarely do this but I’m sharing a photo of me wearing the Echelon Jacket. The fit is great and quite comfortable. I’m just as impressed with it as I am with the Envoy Jacket I already own, maybe even a bit more. For one thing, the Echelon’s Cashmere has a bit more stretch than the waxed canvas of the Envoy. It’s also a bit more understated while the Envoy gives off a bit of a tactical vibe.

I sent my wife that photo and she asked if it was a Louis Vuitton jacket. I replied that it was in fact DFK, but that she was right about it being made in Europe. But that doesn’t mean that this is a fashion brand. The quality is very high and it looks great, but inside the jacket there are some extras like pass-through zippers you won’t find off the rack at Saaks.

The product is exclusive with zero compromises. Across the line, materials originate in Europe or the US. The same with manufacture.

Some have complained about the company being tight lipped about their clothing and accessories but it’s by design. You contact them and they come to you for a showing and fitting.
