Hi guys, I've been working on something new since revisiting London last summer.
It took me a while to engineer the SnowSmock, probably much longer than it should have
I wanted this piece to be versatile in terms of how you'd wear it but also be able to accommodate different fabrics and weights.
For example, this cut will work for a heavy wool and a light cotton. Reason being, when I find a piece that I like I tend to buy multiples. I plan on having fun with different fabric runs. But to start things off I have chosen a StyleForum classic; thick n crunchy cotton poplin. (A long button up in matching fabric and similar pocket details will be developed later.)
I want to make this collection as cohesive as possible and put out pieces at my own pace.
Boxy. Relaxed. Dropped Shoulders. Easy-fit. Eggy (?). Slightly cropped but will still allow for wear on its own.
I really played around with the neckline and came up with a "boxy U-shape"
+Small/36/46: This is the size I am wearing (5'6" 130 pds)
Shoulder to shoulder(Dropped shoulder) 20"
Sleeve length 22.5"
Arm hole 9.5"
Body Length (from back of collar) 24"
Pocket bag 7.5" x 10.75"
Grading will be done accordingly but the fit is easy. Size it around your normal size chest
+Heavy cotton poplin (approx. 8-10 ounces) is silky but stiff. Suitable for spring summer and will make for a great layering piece in fw.
+French seams throughout.
+Removable Pocket bag. The offset pocket bag breaks up the clean lines but is still very uniform. I've always liked welt seams and ever since buying Helmut Lang inside out denim I've had a thing for pocket bags too
+The buttons are hand sewn. *I plan to add a third button in the middle to get rid of the cute derp face and make it into a horizontal snowman.
+The tag is an amalgamation human and machine. It will be laser cut out of the same cotton poplin and stitched on. Hand written elements will give this piece a human quality and break up the clean, clinical feel. *pics of the design are shown
+Made in Canada
