Walko x W.ESSENTIELS Army Utility Jacket British Khaki
Walko tapped W.ESSENTIELS into a military inspired capsule collection named "BATTLE OF SOMME" after the historical battle between allied v germany force in WW1
Inspired by True Event, which took place from July to November 1916 between British Empire & French Republic against the German Empire. The allied force casualities was pretty heavy in this battle, some 420.000 soldiers due to the devastating 1st week strategy by British official especially General Haig for continuing the offensive in spite of such devastating losses. Despite its failure, the Allied offensive at the Somme did inflict serious damage on German positions in France, spurring the Germans to strategically retreat to the Hindenburg Line in March 1917 rather than continue battling over the same land that spring. The surviving British forces had also gained valuable experience, which would later help them achieve victory on the Western Front.
