This reversible jacket features a side for every mood. The linen side with large inseam pockets can be worn as a completely minimal look. Cuffs, hemline, and front closure are faced in linen so the color can be completely contained inside if you so wish. Roll up the cuffs to add a bit of handstitched funk, or reverse and wear full color when you are in the headspace to let your colors fly!

Linen is one of the oldest textiles in the world - made from the fibres found in the stem of the flax plant. It is laborious to manufacture, but the fibers are very absorbent. Garments made of linen are considered luxurious for their quality and exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.

Often associated with linen yarn is the presence of "slubs", or small knots which occur randomly along its length. Slubs are considered part of the aesthetic appeal of an expensive natural product and do not compromise the integrity of the fabric.
Linen is relatively easy to take care of, since it resists dirt and stains + has no lint or pilling tendency. It can be dry-cleaned, machine-washed or steamed. Although it can withstand high temperatures, we recommend washing it in cold water.
The tendency to wrinkle is often considered part of linen's particular "charm." Most linen garments are designed to be air-dried on a good clothes hanger and worn without ironing.
