The Townsend Coat Prime is a spring-weight parka by the Japanese fashion brand visvim. Lightweight and durable, the outerwear is crafted from 65% cotton and 35% linen and then damage-processed for strength. The fabric looks simple in olive green herringbone but is actually intricately detailed with hand-drawn, stenciled, dyed, and twisted detailing; a deer path; vegetable-ivory buttons, and Swiss Riri zippers. Designed and made in Japan, the high-end jacket is available online from Union Los Angeles for $1,546.
