Good evening. This is Ikeda.
When commuting by bicycle, not only sweat but also sunburn is your worst enemy when it's extremely hot.
It's not that I don't like tanning per se, but it just doesn't suit me in the first place.
So, I basically wear sunscreen when I go to work in the summer.
Although I thought I was applying it properly, I was getting a little burnt, and there was also a difference in the degree of tanning between my left and right sides, which made me feel a bit strange.
Furthermore, when I wore long sleeves in spring, only the backs of my hands got a little sunburn, which caused a three-level difference in my skin: the backs of my hands, my wrists to my elbows, and my upper arms.
I'm thinking about going to work without applying sunscreen, but I don't want to get sunburned, so I'm going to try to find a way to deal with it next year.
I'm far from the type of person who wears sunscreen, but I feel like there's been an uptick in sports lately, but maybe it's just my imagination.
Until recently, there was a difference in power between Japan and other countries, but I feel like that power difference is gradually disappearing.
I have no idea what caused it, and I only watch the highlights on the news.
It's better to develop individuality rather than trying to differentiate yourself in anything, so today I'd like to introduce you to INNAT's HUNTING COAT and BOA FLEECE LINER VEST.
These are items that you can enjoy even though they are different.
Let's start with HUNTING COAT.
The source of the design is a hunting jacket from a certain outdoor brand.
The actual source is hunting jackets from the 60's to 70's, but I think you can often find hunting jackets that are not that old in second-hand clothing.
I also own a used hunting jacket from a certain brand.
When you think of hunting jackets, you often think of duck fabric, but here we use moleskin.
This moleskin is densely woven and has a thick texture.
Furthermore, it has been treated with suede brushing, giving it a moist and soft texture.
In addition, like a hunting jacket, corduroy is featured in key areas such as the collar, lining of the sleeves, and the back of the pockets.
The collar also has buttons so that it can be worn with a stand-up collar, so you can show or hide the ridges depending on the situation.
continue, BOA FLEECE LINER VEST.
This is an item derived from LINER VEST, a quilt that we have been developing continuously.
Like previous quilt LINER items, it can be adjusted with HUNTING COAT.
Therefore, the design of the front edge and neck hole has been followed.
As I wrote about it last season and may have seen it in the images I posted on Instagram, it can be worn as an inner layer or layered over an outer layer, so it can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.
Especially this season, if you wear it as an inner layer, the length will be different and the liner will show off your face.
I personally like this difference.
Regarding the fabric, due to certain circumstances this season we are unable to use cupro, so we have chosen wool boa fleece.
This wool is made from Uruguayan wool and has a natural color. It is knitted with worsted yarn and finished as wool boa fleece.
At first glance, it may seem heavy, but that's not the case at all; in fact, it's extremely light.
Light and warm, it's sure to be a perfect winter companion.
Polyester boas are often used by outdoor brands, so you might end up with the impression of gear or tech, but this one uses wool and has been knapped. , it reproduces the texture of a sheep-like fabric, giving it a natural look.
This may be good news for those who don't like the atmosphere of gear and tech.
Regarding the color, both items are only available in brown.
As for HUNTING COAT, Charcoal is sold out.
This season's Brown is dyed with a botanical hybrid dye using persimmon tannin.
I find it interesting that even if the fabric is dyed in the same color, the way it dyes will vary depending on the fabric.
When layered, there is not only a difference in length, but also a difference in color, which creates a sense of depth.
I would like to enjoy the difference in length, color, and even the feel of the fabric.
HUNTING COAT's moist moleskin, BOA FLEECE LINER VEST's fluffy boa fleece.
You'll want to buy both when you can enjoy such a difference just by layering them.
Well, I'm in trouble.
It makes me think that I should enjoy the differences rather than comparing them to others.
You can enjoy the difference to the fullest and try the sinful INNAT HUNTING COAT and BOA FLEECE LINER VEST, which will stimulate your desire.
