I am so glad to introduct 1st Pat-Rn as a new addition to our retail store in Williamsburg. After exchanging a few emails with the designer, Cristiano Berto, I instantly felt the close connection to our passion for historical research, high quality and yet rugged fabrication, attention to functional details and a versatile way of dressing for the new generation of artisans.
Tropicale Jacket is made of the knit cavalry twill that has a classic cavalry twill texture and yet stretchable for comfort and movement. The interior construction is impeccably finished with binding in soft jersey. The buttons are detachable with a ring back. All the labels are well designed to demonstrate the passion for authentic products.
The pattern was created by Alessio Berto. To make a knit fabric look constructioned and refined is not an easy task. I can see the master patternmaking skills when I put on the Tropicale Jacket.
I was also very thrilled to receive my precious gift of a seamless tie from Christiano Berto. I definitely shall cherish this. It's pinned on my inspiration rigging board in my studio.
1st Pat-Rn Tropicale Jacket is now available at Kai D.
