This tailored 100% wool coat is colour blocked with dark blue and speckled army green. It has a six-button center front closure with a colour blocked notch collar. Along the front colour break line, there are two welt pockets that run horizontally, another two mini welts running vertically above and two flap pockets with single button closures below. The inside of the coat is lined with synthetic fur and kasha lining, with two welt pockets sewn around the chest and waist. The lapel and notch collar are both stuffed and quilted.
Collection I asks the customer to reconsider the limitations of mens fashion. It encourages the wearer to embrace androgyny and reject conventions and trends. Collection I is dark, mysterious and sexy, and plays homage to icon Lou Reed. It is minimalist, understated and sharp. The quality of construction and fit make the wearer feel composed, compelling and professional.
Collection I is comprised of six looks, each representing a different need and purpose for the customer. The mono color palette allows the pieces from each look to be easily mixed, and will never become outdated as can happen with prints and colors. The breadth of texture, weight and proportions allow the wearer to create the look that suits his need, whether light weight linen and cottons, or heavy neoprene, wool and leather.
Slate is a high end luxury brand with a focus on slow fashion, which ensures the longevity and quality of our garments. We create a multi-faceted look suited to a variety of lifestyles. This is achieved as our six designers combine their different tastes, while still creating a cohesive collection. SLATE provides timeless garments with an interesting and subtle twist on classic tailored menswear. We offer the utmost care and quality standards, and offer basic alteration and repairs to encourage the long term use of our products. SLATE is not just clothing; it is an experience.
Starting from a clean slate: Collection I by SLATE is a modern take on classic men’s fashion. The collection does not meet the conventions of todays fashion industry, it is non-seasonal and anti fast-fashion.
