You know that we at Heddels don’t usually endorse fakes or cut corners, but there’s something about the faux Boro of the new Zanter x FDMTL jacket that we love.
Japanese brand FDMTL is well-known and well-loved for their elaborate and intricate boro designs (see our video profile). The Boro you see here on their Printed Boro Repair Jacket isn’t lovingly hand-stitched, but instead printed onto the 100% cotton shell. The high-def image of the iconic boro gives that hand-made feel to a piece that is far more technically complex.
The Zanter down will keep you warm in even the most brutal environs and two outer pockets and one zip inner one will store all your wintertime essentials. Ribbed collar and cuffs will also help keep out the elements, and of course, the whole thing is made in Japan.
Available from Blue Owl for $585.
