Product description

This long coat with pockets and deep ribbing is all insouciant style, but the secret of its success is in the perfectly planned details. Gentle waist shaping keeps the lines flattering, seamed construction adds stability, and fashioned decreases lend a touch of class to the raglan shoulders. The single-rib collar is worked together with the fronts and then extended and seamed to the back. We’ve styled Emerson oversized, with 8” of ease, but choose a size that gives you 2-4” of ease if you prefer a traditional fit.

Designer: Véronik Avery
