“Canadian label Arc’teryx Veilance is famed for its highly technical construction that provides protection from the elements in discreet, minimalist style. This lightweight blue-grey Gore-Tex jacket is a case in point, featuring easy-to-use but waterproof pockets, and a concealed drawstring hood. This piece is the sophisticated solution to combating the season’s wet weather.”
“The goggle jacket is probably the most iconic C.P. Company design, based on the jackets worn by drivers during the famous Mille Miglia races, the features are all based on the original race jackets, updated in modern, functional fabrics. A new addition for SS12, the Bellow Pocket Goggle Jacket features a number of different sized pockets on the front, inspired by the functionality of military jackets, as well as the famous watchviewer on the sleeve and a rear belt with adjustable snap fastening.”
“Waxed cotton body with cotton duck canvas club collar.”

“The Army Hooded Jacket from Han Kjobenhavn is fabricated to make you able to survive when weather becomes mean. It is a classic parka with to front pockets, zipper front and made from lightweight wind/repelling nylon.
