Minimalist excellence from early Helmut Lang, this padded mac coat strips the tailored coat back to its fundamentals. The material package features a supple lightweight cotton poplin outer with an incredibly smooth hand, light polyester insulation, and fluid silk-like viscose/cupro lining throughout for a piece that is deceptively warm and sharp in appearance. The omission of extraneous detail (plain cuff, hidden placket front closure, and low-profile welt waist pockets) drives the focus onto the tailoring, shape, and materiality. Tailored shoulders and a slightly sculpted back create a sleek, flattering silhouette, a single buttonhole at wearer's left collar point is all the more impactful, a vestige of function as it allows the wearer to flip and fasten the collar for a high neck, fully protective look. The superfine matte black face fabric and supple lining balance everyday and luxury. The result is a sleek, versatile, and utilitarian piece that can be worn everyday
Finished with two interior chest pockets and signature interior waist strap.
Made in Italy 8/10 Condition, with no rips, stains, or tears. Some light fading around high wear areas like collar and cuffs is mostly unnoticeable. Waist strap stitching has come undone on one side which is an easy fix with no structural damage to any of the fabrics. Lining is in great condition. Lowest front button has fallen off and will need to be replaced.
