It’s a chore coat! It’s a cardigan! It’s a Kapital Hand Knit Cowichan RAILROAD JKT. Kapital is ever playful and innovative with this Engineer Jacket-inspired knit, which performs almost the same function as a chore coat, but does it a whole lot cozier. Knit by hand from 100% cotton yarns, it’s almost as if Kapital is our collective crochet-crazy grandmother, and we’re the child in need of warming layers against the elements.
Because they’re all knit by hand a la cowichan, there’s bound to be some differences in knitting, sizing, and fit, but expect an oversized fit in general. And, just like the knit your grandmama made ya, expect it to catch easily – so stay away from pointy objects.
These faded indigo knits are complete with black button front placket, reinforced work jacket-esque yokes, roomy patch pockets, and workwear-inspired Kapital tag. The icing on the cake, though? Those pronounced seams which are reminiscent of the boldly white or natural yarns used in the Railroad work chores of yore but in a charmingly goofy Kapital fashion.
Available for $1174 from Blue in Green.
