long-to-short convertible edgy neutral color block duster coat/jacket

One of the artist's favorite things is to make 'play-with-me' clothing - pieces that can be adjusted, or changed depending on the mood or need. This jacket is true fun to play with! Wear it asymmetrically short, or floor length, with a few other adjustments possible. The bottom half of the jacket is attached to the top on buttons, so you can fully remove it, or unbutton just the ends to leave them hanging, for a different look, or button up in any which way you want, if you want to truly play with the look, or leave some of them unbuttoned for 'hanging arches' - so many different ways! It is made out of regular weight cotton, with thick cotton/lycra mix for arms for extra comfort, so isn't truly warm, although because of the length has a medium weight to it. Hand-painted and painstakingly distressed throughout with a geometric block pattern. Pure fun, and a definite artistic statement! Product code: L3869

Hand wash.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
