A jacket inspired by the elegance and ease of traditional Japanese design with oversized shaping, V-neck and no buttons or closures for multiple styling options. The moss stitch creates a subtle all-over texture that is set off by a narrow edging along the neckline and sleeves and refined details that derive from signature construction techniques. One size only.
