*A Vontade draws it’s inspiration from the utilitarian aspects of classic US and European Military, workwear and sportswear items. With meticulous attention paid to the smallest details they strive to create a garment that still has worth and relevance with the passing of time and developing still greater character with wear. Designed by Kazuyuki Yamakawa and always made in Japan.
Black Modified Nordic Snow Parka
Paying homage to a Swedish army snow parka from the 1960’s, this hooded jacket is cut from a high density yarn dyed horse cloth that is then hardened with paraffin. The treatment makes it very stiff and constructed to wear in with the wearer as it ages. Cut oversized with gusseted pockets, cotton tape details on the cuff, hood, and hem.
