We’re officially in spring and that would normally mean it’s time to ditch the heavy fabrics and get relaxed for the warmer months ahead. That would be the case if it wasn’t snowing today here in NYC. The good thing is this gives you some more time to prepare.

It’s made from 100% ringspun cotton Japanese twill with all the cutting and sewing done right in Los Angeles.

It’s all in the details, folks.
