Annoyingly, no -- at least not by my fair hands. I forgot to include it when we had our little photo-shoot last month. The plan is to take a few more photographs towards the end of the month, for the car coat, smock, and boatneck, none of which have yet been captured in the wild.Any pictures of the car coat worn?
I somehow associate boatnecks with nautical life (must be the name) and both of them with rolled edges.That's wild, never thought that you guys would go with a rolled neck, so louche!
I'm very intrigued by the smock and its simplicity. Any thoughts of offering a pair of pants built along similar lines, perhaps with a drawstring? I'm thinking in terms of lazy days around the house, or perhaps work from home - something clean-lined and unfussy to throw on with some espadrilles.
I like the suggestion!
The smock (and popover shirt and pyjama top and to a lesser extent the cryogenically frozen trucker jacket) came about because we were a little unbalanced this time last year. Too many coats and substantial jackets, I mean, and not much to say about the warmer times year. So we put some effort into broadening the collection in the simpler and lighter direction.
We don't have much currently by way of casual, breezy leg-wear, except for shorts, and while I'd be a fool to say never, it's not something on the cards for now.
Our general frame of style is a bit smarter, I guess, if that's the right phrase (I don't mean in a disparaging way) or at least more structured. The smock is quite unstructured to look at, it's true, but with the gussets and vents and darts it has quite a lot of "engineering" in the cutting to enhance the experience for the wearer. I don't immediately see the potential for that in a casual trouser, but ... well, hey, never say never.
I think I am post-rationalising, the more I type, just because it's not something I'm hugely drawn to right now. But the more wardrobe niches we fill, as we go on, the more likely we'll have a good idea in that direction. And then I'll look back at this reply and realise my ignorance!
Your point about working from home is especially astute, and something I should certainly be thinking more about.
not much of a good picture, but here are a few pictures of the carcoat in weatherproof ripstop with the granddad collar shirt in linen suiting and the slim trouser worn under. hope this helps.Any pictures of the car coat worn?
