Favorite turtleneck design ever. Everything about it is amazing. The wide rib, the ribbing pattern around shoulders and sleeves. Just perfect. And you can zip the neck open when you move from 20 degrees outside to 75 inside... genius
yeah i love it. the cut and design are super cool and the weight of the wool is wonderful. so so soft but substantial. debating the black one that's in stock for this year.


How often do you use the zipper?
kinda infrequently actually. the wool is super warm when it needs to be but i'm in a 72 degree office right now and i'm completely comfortable wearing it as a turtleneck. i frankly don't even notice the zipper unless i look in a mirror. it's nice to have when you do get warm though, it definitely helps cool you down and still looks great.

I'm wearing the Captain Sunshine Ghurka trousers today, for the first time. Really dig these, think I'll like them even more after a wash since I probably could have gone a size down. Paired with the Fujito knit T and some other stuff. Pick is a little dark, sorry.

@Newcomer (and anybody else who owns/is familiar with both coats): Which overcoat would you buy if given the choice between the Camoshita Robe Coat or the KS Traveler Coat? Looking for a coat to wear primarily to work but also on the weekends. I generally wear sportscoats or sweaters to work in the colder months, but would like the versatility to wear the coat over a suit if necessary. DC has the occasional cold snap (like today) but winters are generally mild. And no, "Why not both?" is not an acceptable answer. The Traveler Coat is sold out in my size, but I can wait one year if that is the consensus answer.

Will defer to @Newcomer and others who actually own these two, but for what it's worth, I have tried them both on, and you should be aware the Camoshita Robe coat is a lot less substantial. And it has that bathrobe thing going on, which might be a plus, might not.

You said you were looking for versatility, and I think the KS Traveler has that in spades.

Don't sleep on the Kaptain Sunshine Drizzler jacket. The drapey, boxy fit is perfect and the fabric is substantial but uber soft. Great for folks in more temperate climates, but could also function as a good layering piece. I have the gunclub makeup and it looks like that's almost sold out (DON'T SLEEP), but the brown looks dope too.

I only own the Traveler. Newcomer owns both I believe. I think the Traveler would be more versatile since the robe coat prob wouldn’t be able to withstand a cold snap unless u layered a lot more and you wouldn’t have the advantage of using the coat to protect your neck like the KS does.

I'm usually in between a small and medium and went with the 38--mostly for the sleeve length. Will try to post a pic later today.

As @LatAm and @Trayco mentioned: this is a question of weight, more than anything. I'm not that familiar with D.C. winters (frankly, when I went for a CLE it seemed rather chilly), but the Robe Coat is substantially less substantial than the Traveler Coat. I think both jackets can do double duty just fine (the Robe Coat looks pretty formal, to be honest).

All this said, gun to my head, I can only have one - Traveler Coat, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. One of my top three purchases of all time. It is good enough that I want a second. Even @NickPollica indicated something to the effect that he "wishes that he had designed it."
