Kapital Katsuragi Django Pea Coat

01

Image

—01. 100% cotton.

Words

Kapital’s restrained designs are the ones that always catch my eye, ranking alongside some of the best from any Japanese brand. This single breasted pea coat is certainly of that ilk, featuring an overall simplicity, free from any superfluous details. The shorter cut and option to button the lapel at the neck make it a good choice if you're looking for a unique, lightweight cotton version of the always classic naval style.

Available from Blue Button Shop

Weekend Listening: Ornette Coleman at Town Hall, 1962

01

Image

—01. Recorded on December 21, 1962.

Words

An oft unappreciated or completely overlooked release in Ornette Coleman’s formidable and rewarding discography, his only album on the always impressive ESP-DISK’ label, and one that comes shortly after a complete overhaul of his classic quartet line-up. While the use of a string ensemble on ‘Dedication to Poets and Writers’ might not make much sense next to the rest of the material and could be skipped altogether, in my honest opinion, the highlight is really ‘The Ark’. Clocking in at just under 24 minutes, this composition stands out as ranking with some of Coleman’s most free and intuitive playing and further shows the incredible talents of his new band members at the time, bassist David Izenson and drummer Charles Moffett. Both of these talents would have a further opportunity to showcase their musical charisma with Coleman on his masterpiece live recordings, At the 'Golden Circle' Stockholm Vol. I and II, and their connection is readily apparent during the rewarding 24 minutes that close this release.

Scha Chicago Big Fur Felt Hat

—01. 100% rabbit hair.

Words

Whenever I find myself looking at hats that may be too daring for me to wear they always seem to be of this shape, featuring a taller crown and medium-sized brim. Ewa Kulasek definitely releases some very simple, luxurious headwear options through her line, Scha, and this one, constructed from 100% rabbit hair, is sure to have an incredibly soft texture. The light camel colour is also a nice alternative to the more common black and grey varieties.

AMI Three Button Coat

01. Fully lined.
02. 100% wool.

Words

A camel topcoat can be both elegant and casual depending on how its worn, and as such has a home in every closet. This quintessential 3-button option from Ami, made from 100% wool, is perfect for pairing with a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers, but would be just as serviceable over a suit, making it a very versatile choice that doesn’t bow to fashion trends.

Brown’s Beach 003 Jacket

—01. 74% Wool, 26% Cotton.

Words

Fall-winter always has me returning to see what pieces Blue in Green have picked up in the inimitable Brown’s Beach fabric from the company of the same name. This season the basic chore coat style in Oxford Grey is a real standout. Featuring a dual-face weave for the warmth of a heavy sweater, these reproductions – an exclusive to the New York shop in the American market – are just as hardwearing and well-styled as they were in the early half of the 20th century.
