Paramount Networks' hit show Yellowstone will be back for a fifth season on November 13th, 2022 — incredible costumes in tow. They've all been done by costume designer Ruth Carter, who worked on films such as Amistad, Dolemite Is My Name, and won an Oscar for her work on Black Panther. The modern western drama sees its characters decked out in vintage-inspired ranchwear with a modern twist, like the down-filled mackinaw zip-up jacket, highlighted with a bright orange yoke, worn by John Dutton (Kevin Costner).
While you could try and convince your tailor to recreate the custom clothes made specifically for Costner, Luke Grimes' character, Kayce Dutton, also sports some enviable ready-to-wear duds throughout the show. The key piece he wears is the Riders Jacket from SoCal-based brand Freenote Cloth. It's a beautiful hybrid between a vintage ranch jacket and trucker jacket and features a burly 10-ounce waxed canvas which, as you can tell from the show, ages really well. But it doesn't just look good — it's the real deal.
All of the metal hardware is custom-made in Kentucky, accompanied by a leather patch from Red Wing as well as a silky satin sleeve lining and Southwestern-inspired printed body liner, both made in Japan. It's got plenty of room for personal effects, with dual chest and hand pockets as well as an interior pocket. And the clever gusseted shoulders allow for a greater range of motion to handle all that tough ranch work (or yard work).
Now, though, the jacket comes in more than just the dusty color you see Dutton in. It comes in seven hues — Tobacco Green, Black Grey, Charcoal, Tobacco, Oak, Rust and Olive.
