A flagship item from the visvim's FW17 "Dissertation on Contrary Warriors" the Valdez Coat is an incredible take on the military N3-B Jacket. The outer of the jacket is crafted from high density nylon sourced from Italian couture supplier Limonta which was custom developed by Hiroki Nakamura and Limonta's expert craftsmen and is characterized by an elegant silk-like lustre.
The jacket is then naturally overdyed in mud using a slow, 1,300 year old technique from Amami Oshima region that is typically used to produce the unique black color of the traditional Japanese silk garment, Oshima Tsumugi. A flowering plant known in Japan as sharinbai (Rhaphiolepis umbellata) is boiled down in a large vat for two days in order to create a liquid extract. A piece of fabric is then dipped repeatedly in this extract, and afterwards immersed in mud. This causes a chemical reaction between the acid pigment in the sharinbai extract and the iron in the mud, which gives birth to a deep, uniquely lustrous black dye.
Tailored with a relaxed fit, this heavyweight coat features four snap front pockets and a snap detachable coyote fur hood trim and wool pile hood lining. The rear of the jacket features cotton twill panels at the sleeves and lower for subtle contrast. A comfortable rayon/cotton inner lining conceals a insulating 100% wool pile fill. Drawstrings at the hood, mid-body and hem allow for a customized fit. Shaped raglan sleeves are finished with wool rib cuffs. Swiss Riri® front zip with interior wind guard and exterior button storm flap. Limited to only 306 garments globally.
