Beach Cloth was invented in the early 1900's by New Englander William Brown to combat the harsh New England winters. Traditionally made from a proprietary wool blend, Kato has reimagined Beach Cloth for modern times.
Kato crafts this season's iteration of the Anvil shirt jacket in a lightweight Japanese "Beach Cloth" that is crafted from 100% Japanese cotton for a soft and a very stylish 3 season garment. Kato departed from the usual brown color used in Beach Cloth and offers it in navy.
Meticulously crafted, Kato employs a 3D pattern for the Anvil shirt jacket resulting in an impeccable fit. Most shirt jackets are cut from two-dimensional patterns. With these 2D patterns, the front is sewn directly to the back. The Anvil Shirt Jacket introduces side panels as the third dimension, allowing more control over the shape of the garment.
As always, The Anvil Shirt Jacket features vintage-style rounded chest and hand pockets, cat-eye buttons, and nylon lined cuffs. Details do matter!
