Oi Polloi and Arpenteur Collaborate for Their Melton Wool Mevi Jacket
Negotiations may have begun for the U.K. to separate from the European Union, but that hasn’t stopped British outfitters Oi Polloi, getting together with French contemporary workwear label, Arpenteur, for a winter collaboration. And the standout piece from this project is the Oi Polloi x Arpenteur Mevi Jacket.
With the bitter French and English winters in mind, this beast of a jacket is made from thick, luxurious 100% melton wool. The hood can be removed via — in Oi Polloi’s words — ‘loud’ snap closures, to reveal a corduroy lined stand-up collar. And as well as a robust button closure, the body boasts two large pockets, big enough for Edward Scissorhands to keep his mitts warm.
Coming in two tonal colorways — navy and olive — each Mevi jacket is made in France by Arpenteur’s skilled craftsmen, and finished with an exclusive dual branded neck label which features Oi Polloi’s mascot cruising in a vintage Peugot. Très Bien!
Coming soon to Oi Polloi, priced at £475.00 ($627USD)
