We linked up with our friend Peter on a misty morning last week to shoot some of the new pieces from our second delivery of SS21 that are hitting 3sixteen.com this Friday, April 2nd. The Mac Coat references classic English rainwear and is the perfect outer shell for the often unpredictable weather that spring can bring. Crafted of the same Japanese water-resistant twill that was featured on our Poncho that we released earlier this month, this coat is both breathable and functional. We opted for raglan sleeves to allow for easier layering - the dropped shoulders avoid unsightly sleeve seam stacking. And while it’s being released as a springtime coat, we’ve also found it to be quite useful in the cooler months when layered over a hoody. We think this is an outerwear piece that you’ll be reaching for often.
Also releasing on Friday are two seersucker popovers in Olive and Sand. Exploring texture as pattern for SS21 is how we fell in love with these tonal seersucker fabrics from Japan. Traditionally utilized in ivy style, we tried to reinterpret this highly functional summertime fabric on our popover body. We love how the wrinkle in seersucker gives every shirt an effortless-broken in look while simultaneously keeping the fabric off your skin for better cooling and ventilation.
On the next rainy spring day you encounter, we highly encourage throwing these pieces on and cruising around the city with The Radio Dept.’s third - and arguably best - LP on your AirPods.
