Frankly for real winter, I am plenty covered with tons of thick coats. The ring coat would be for in between seasons although I think it might warm enough with a sweater for days above 0 Celsius. Though another thing that I love about Kapital is it goes really really well with my thrifted winter jackets.For the real cold season in Chicago, Kapital makes a Melton wool ring coat that is really nice. Independence usually gets a few of them in the fall if you want to check it out.
Looks like the hood is already out in that photo. It tucks up into the neck shawl and buttons in the back.And yes it does look good with a hoodie. Sorta wish i had the room / spare cash to buy one in denim, would be a great look with some white painters pants.. Maybe next time I'm in Japan, Japan MSRP aint even bad. It's about 8*C here and this was just slightly warm enough, anything lower and I'd be wanting a wool one.

Still a bit confused on how to turn it into shawl collar mode, where's the hood in this photo? My hood when not in use is sorta just tucked into the back neck area, but maybe you can roll it up in the shawl without making it too bulky somehow?

I'm 6'0", 161 lbs and denim one in size 3 was way too big, size 2 is a nicely oversized fit on me. Also note that denim ones fit slightly longer than other ring coats, not much but noticeably.Yet another ring coat question (sorry I know it's been beat to death)
5'9" ~165 lbs, I'm thinking a 2 would be pretty perfect (gold ripstop), but I found a denim in size 3 and it's quite tempting...
Is the denim nicer than ripstop? I like the variation in materials and the idea of the indigo fading with the denim but I'm afraid a 3 will be too long for me (don't mind an oversized, drapier fit, just don't want the sleeves to bunch up too much or look bad). Also the ripstop is cheaper. Could also wait till the F/W stuff drops. Lots to think about
Any help is greatly appreciated!
