Post Overalls Nylon Mattalini Jacket

—01. Tan version available here.

Words

The Mattalini jacket is one of my favorite pieces from Post Overalls. Whether winter or summer, the fabric choices are always great and the cut of the jacket works nicely as an outer garment or a layering item. The nylon fabric was a unique choice from Takeshi as well, one that I thought would be quite difficult to wear. However, after giving it a try and getting some tips from the designer himself, its worked out to be a useful piece.
