The Demon Killer: Back View
Originally the hood was going to be sewn into a seam halfway up the collar, and then I had an epiphany: same design, but with a hidden zipper, so that the hood can be removable.
So what you are seeing here is a collar with a panel that hides a zipper. When the hood is attached, the collar effectively becomes the lower half of the hood, which folds up along with the rest of the hood (as shown in the bottom row). This means that in wind and rain when you want a hood and a popped collar, you get that in one motion, and the hood and collar don’t get in each other’s way and bunch up at the back of the neck.
I’m personally very pleased with this design, and excited to start producing it after we’ve reopened orders. Updates on that front are coming very soon.
