This vintage technical shell jacket from Tumi features an unexpectedly forward utilitarian detail in its accordion style stow hood. Interestingly, this detail might be familiar as a high fashion parallel can be found in the 'accordion' style hood used on coats/hoodies in Raf Simons' futuristic AW06 collection. Here, however, multi-material tiered layers are eschewed in place of a single fabric and panels that are sewn with seam allowances outwards. This lets the panels of the hood fold together naturally, quickly, and efficiently when not donned. Velcro patches are sewn on the edges to keep the folds in place.
Finished with center front zipper, two laminated zippered waist pockets, action back pleats, and a shockcord adjustable hem.
9.5/10 Condition with no rips, stains, or tears. No signs of wear.
Fit notes: Fits a true XL but easily doable as a smaller size looking for an oversize fit.
