x Bastong Collaboration

Autumn Winter 17' Gloverall collaborated with classic Korean style brand Bastong to create a collection centred around craftsmanship, details, and a new take on fit. Bastong have taken the classic heritage of the duffle coat and come up with a more fashion-forward take on the original design.

The new design features a more tailored fit, whilst still being comfortable and practical. Cut from Casentino wool, a traditional wool fabric from Tuscany, Bastong have doubled the size of the toggles, drawing influence from the duffle’s heritage as a traditional naval coat, and remodelling them to look like anchors. Crafted primarily out of oak wood and coated in wax, the toggles are attached with 5mm rope to offset the oversized toggles.
Using the original ‘Monty’ design, Bastong have altered the balance and silhouette of the original coat, slimming it down for a more contemporary look. The pockets have also been adjusted in their position slightly as an additional way of forming a trimmer silhouette.
