The car coat, a symbol of its time, first found its popularity in the roaring 1920s. And so, with a dash of creative liberty, we pay homage to it through the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, that maestro of narrative brilliance from that very generation.
“The illustrious car coat has embarked on a transformative journey. In its inception, it was a sartorial guardian, offering warmth and solace to intrepid motorists navigating the early days of open-top automobiles. Its length, a variable that has waltzed with the shifting tides of fashion, has perennially settled just above the mid-thigh, a testament to its enduring allure.
Now, let us introduce the Watson, a paragon of modernity and style—a hybrid of the classic car coat and the rugged shirt jacket. Its main body remains unlined, a canvas of unencumbered freedom, while the sleeves boast the embrace of bemberg, a sartorial detail that facilitates ease of wear.
Meticulously adorned with button-through shirt cuffs and side entry pockets, the Watson marries form and function with an air of sophistication. Whether you choose to drape it over a chunky sweater for an enchanting date night or channel your inner Giovanni, winding along the sinuous roads of the Amalfi coast in your Alfa Romeo Spider, this coat exudes an aura of timeless elegance and charm, fitting for the dashing souls of our age.”
