“A little retro, a little ‘Audrey.’”
In handsome, dense, double moss stitch, this cozy outerwear classic is a little retro, a little ‘Audrey.’ Three-quarter length sleeves and a folded, stand-up collar give it a slightly tailored finish. Dropped shoulders and straight sleeves allow room for comfy layering. The universally flattering length brings to mind the favorite duffle to pea coat.

For a warm, robust Car Coat, we’ve picked chunky-weight Rowan Cocoon. Its roving-style highlights the intriguing texture of the double moss stitch. And Cocoon’s sturdy combination of merino and mohair is utterly snuggly—perfect for this handsome outerwear piece!
