If you’ve been keeping your eye on Clutch Cafe’s ‘new arrivals’ section recently, you would have seen a generous influx of fresh garb from Japanese brands such as outerwear legend Coherence, vintage sportswear demon Pherrow’s, and sartorially-gifted Soundman, to name just a few. However, the drop that’s floated my boat the most is the restock of Warehouse & Co.’s Lot 462 Sweat Parkas.
Cut in Japan from a lightweight cotton that has undergone a rigorous washing cycle to age and soften the fabric these hoodies make up part of the ‘2nd hand series’, a faction within Warehouse roster that aims to emulate the feel of washed vintage goods. They feature a raglan sleeve construction for extra maneuverability, a short cuff and waistband, and a 60s style hood, perfect for those who want that vintage sportswear look and feel, but don’t have the time to get thrifty.
Available in a number of winter-ready colors including mustard, red, and cream, the ever-popular Lot 462 Sweat Parka has solidified itself as a perennial piece in Warehouse’s expanding armory of classic, vintage-inspired sportswear goodness.
These don’t hang around in the popular sizes for too long, so if you’re in the market for a lightweight, layerable hoodie to chuck under your favorite military jacket or overshirt, you may want to think fast.
Available for $175 from Clutch Cafe.
