Sempach is a dapper outerwear brand that has put together a series of jackets and coats inspired by the design and durability of military tents used in the Swiss Army. The jackets have a durable, waterproof exterior coupled with a lightweight and cotton design for breathability and functionality. The jackets are designed to stand up to wear and tear with an engineered design based on practicality and survival.

The Sempach coats fuse modern minimalistic and asymmetrical aesthetic with the durable design found in army gear. The jackets are made using cotton canvas that is rendered waterproof with a rubberized finish and they carry the subtle aesthetic of a tent with stylish zippers and string detailing.

To increase durability in staple pieces, the fashion world is turning to unlikely industries such as the military for quality design inspiration.
