Attention coat wearers who live in warmer climates: The Fujito Shirt Coat in Herringbone Gray Check could be the elusive piece of lightweight outerwear you’ve been looking for. It’s not a shirt, it’s not a winter coat, it’s a shirt-coat. AKA a shirt-jacket. It’s the light layer that can be worn on its own or sized up and thrown over all the layers imaginable. It’s practically begging to be worn with a scarf or knit cap.
It’s functional as hell with its three-pocket design. Those who have had the pleasure of wearing a chore coat as an outer layer know what we’re talking about here. Made in Japan, the Shirt Coat is cut from a nicely textured 100% cotton herringbone fabric, includes a button placket, spread collar, flat/split hem for proper draping, and back yoke reinforcement with darting.
