I present once more one of my favorite small American (and local) makers of clothing made in the USA. This new product is a raincoat called .Lumbar Rain by Poppy Von Frohlich.
I finally made a rain coat! Waxed cotton canvas is the earth friendly option when it comes to rain gear. Lumber Rain is designed to make you look rad while battling the rain.
Large boxed pockets set at an angle for comfort but not so angled that your stuff falls out, my large signature hood with a leather drawstring, western style front yoke, back rain flap, curved hem (a little longer in the back), antigued copper snaps, and french seams. (better pictures coming, these are temporary photos)
I designed the coat to have enough room for two medium/light weight layers or one medium/thick layer. Bust shaping is from a narrow front side panel and a larger armhole.
To clean a waxed cotton coat you brush off dirt with a soft brush, if you get a lot of use out of it you can rinse it off with a hose and if you get a lot, a lot of use out of it you may need to reapply wax in the areas that get a lot of rubs. The coat cannot be washed in a machine nor can it be dry-cleaned.
A key characteristic of waxed cotton is that it shows its creases, called crooking. It is a desired look when buying waxed cotton. Expect to see crooking in the coat and show it off with pride because wearing waxed cotton is cool and responsible. The whiskey color and the moss show the crooking more than the black does.
Are you new to waxed cotton? Are you a tiny bit skeptical? I completely understand. This coat can be worn as a normal canvas coat on non-rainy days but it has the added bonus of having water resistant properties for those rainy days, water does not penetrate the cotton fiber, it simply beads up and rolls off. Waxed cotton can sound funny to someone who hasn’t worn it before so I am offering exchange, store credit or refunds. I think once you try it on you will be very happy with it, but in case you discover it is not right for you we can figure out which return policy is best for you. This offer is good for coats that have not been worn outside, coats that were only tried on and worn around the house for twenty minutes or so.
This is a pre-order, Shipping is scheduled for September 22nd
