Soundman Ashley II B Coat KhakiSoundman
Continuing to be inspired by vintage military wear, this AW21 sees Soundman utilise exacting fabrics with inspired design.
The Ashley II B Coat has become an instant favourite, and takes heavy inspiration from those styles often published in early 1930's issues of Esquire and Apparel Arts, often referencing classic makers such as Grenfell, Burberry & Aquascutum.
At first glance the Ashley II B Coat takes the form of a classic balmacaan coat. This is defined as a loose, overcoat with raglan sleeves, originally cut from a heavy woollen or tweed fabric. To decrease risk of water penetrating the coat, the number of seams is reduced by bringing the sleeve to the collar rather than to the shoulder as usual. A balmacaan has raglan sleeves and a Prussian collar, and is usually made of tweed or gabardine.
Cut in Japan from an almost two-tone, water repellent cotton gabardine, the Ashley II is packed full of great detailing. An over-sized fit and silhouette provides a nod to vintage garments. A concealed button front using horn buttons are backed with leather tabs while the body of the coat is lined in a custom cotton flannel check. Two slash pockets have been paired with a belted waist and adjustable belted cuffs to adjust fitting as necessary. Sloping raglan sleeves that allow for ease of wear complete the look.
