New Style: 1/4 Zip Smock
Inspired by classic Americana, nautical, and sportswear styles over the years, the 1/4 Zip Smock is our a modern take on a vintage painter smock.
The style is designed with warmer months in mind. Worn as an outer layer it's a great go to throw over for cooler parts of the day, a pack piece you might wear on an early morning cycle to work and pop on again as the sun dips on spring evenings spent outdoors. Equally it will work well as a mid layer, under a waterproof shell going into the autumn and winter months.
The “A” frame body shape gives it a loose relaxed fit and makes it easy to pop on and off. It has a 1/4 length metal YKK zip and stand up neck opening, which can be worn up or down. There is an adjustable synched bottom hem for comfort and deep side welt pockets, as you always need to put your hands somewhere on those cooler nights.
We chose 3 of our favourite fabrics which each give a slight variation on the design.
8oz poly/cotton navy ripstop - Lightest weight of the 3 options, has something of a technical feel and a nod to our core classic navy ripstop fabric. This fabric will age really well.
9.5oz bleached hickory stripe - Super summer vibe using classic washed out hickory striped denim, the bleaching gives the fabric a soft handle and lighter weight than our core classics fabric.
11oz over-dyed twill old gold - classic Stan colour-up on our core durable twill fabric, over-dyed to give a softer handle, works great with bleached hickory stripe or olive sateen bottoms.
