All the benefits warmth of wool with an unbelievable plushness, spot on base color and the subtlest plaid pattern. Italy truly has a special way with fabric and this is proof. Our CPO makes for loyal companion.
This is a fabric that simply does everything right. 80% wool for warmth. A usable weight - solid but not bulky. An absolute plushness that makes it a pure joy to wear - picture a fuzzy felt but with volume and a much lighter touch. The perfect metallic grey base that's infinitely pair-able with other garments. A subtle, thin plaid for retro style. Perfection.
Each starts with great attention to construction details. Significant flat felling is used throughout, from side-seams to shoulders to sleeves, for a clean finish and added toughness. The front placket, cuffs, collar, yoke and interior map pocket all receive lining using a blue cotton chambray. This gives the garment subtle shadow and contrast. Small side gussets are sewn into the side hems, also from blue cotton/linen chambray, and secured with two bartacks. There are two symmetrical front chest pockets and a single pocket on the left sleeve that gives you a nice place to stash small items. Inside, you get a large side entry pocket from blue chambray. All flap pockets, cuffs and front are secured with aged brass snaps.
The fit is designed to be tailored while still accommodating light weight items underneath. The length is longer than our button downs. We recommend selecting the same size in our CPO as you wear in our jackets. You can size up if you like to layer with thick garments underneath.
