Simply dashing. The car coat.
The car coat originated in the golden
era of the automobile. In open-top cars, it protected its wearer against piercing wind and cold weather.
At the same time, it was tailored so that
it took into account the limited space
available on the vehicle seat, and thus
did not obstruct the driver‘s freedom of
movement – which still makes it an
appropriate companion today, and not
only when driving.
The cut of our Moleskin car coat is long
enough to cover a jacket and features a
luxurious collar with distinctive stitching.
The concealed button placket ensures
that little wind can pass through, thus
allowing the coat to fulfill its original
purpose with flying colors.
Moleskin. Soft and durable.
Moleskin is a heavy cotton fabric
woven in a satin weave with strong
warp yarns and an extremely high weft
density (up to 400 threads per inch) and
then sanded and coarsened in a multistep
At Cotonificio Carlo Bonomi in Lombardy,
Italy, who have been cotton weavers
since 1860, all of these steps and more
take place under one roof to create our
moleskin fabric: the selection of the
best raw cotton, the weaving and
dyeing, and the finishing of the cotton
material. So that the machines can
handle the high weft density, the Moleskin
is manufactured on looms that run
slower than today‘s standards.
