It’s good to be back with the latest offering since the Gollers Smock Parka.
I’ve wanted to do something that’s multi-seasonal for a while. Something I can run concurrently through the changing seasons, develop and use different fabrics to suit. The Isca windshirt ticks those boxes.
I’ve been reliably informed that a cross between a shirt and a jacket is called a shacket but I’m not convinced. I’ve designed this to sit somewhere in the middle but it swings more towards the smock / jacket end of the spectrum, however it’s versatile enough to be worn as either.
I’ve kept the design understated with the emphasis placed on the fabrics but I’ve added a couple of interesting details with two decent sized pockets and a drawstring hem. The collar offers something a little different and has a button up plaket.
I’ve used three beautiful fabrics for these starting with an 11 wale 280gsm dusky rose pink corduroy:
Secondly I’ve used a 280gsm yellow dry waxed cotton from Halley Stevenson:
Last but not least a 280gsm Iona check dry waxed cotton from Halley Stevenson:
Please note there can sometimes be a very slight variation in fabric colour due to screen resolution, lighting and Halley Stevenson’s dying process but they’re portrayed as accurate as possible.
These are cut slightly generous but nothing too drastic. They’re meant to be worn as an over smock / shirt so retrain a looser fit - take this into consideration when you’re choosing your size. I’m wearing an XL and it fits me nicely with a comfortable amount of room. The drawstring waist affords the fit some scope for adjustment and can be pulled in tight or left loose.
As always I implore you to study the measurements carefully. I can ill afford multiple returns due to sizing issues as everything is done on a made to order basis.
Please see the measurement chart below:
Please note that the cuff height needs to be added to the underarm sleeve length to give an accurate pit to cuff measurement.
