With a cabled hood to keep the chill of warm weather breezes away, this oversized jacket features front pockets towards the bottom hemline and ties the overlapping front panels with its matching belt.
Due to the heavy nature of this garment it is advisable to reinforce the shoulder seams and back neck against stretching. This may be achieved by sewing a rigid tape or a line of running stitch along shoulder seams and across the base of hood at neck after making up.
