This Yarmo linen parka is fucking amazing. It really is. It’s a simple design. It’s lightweight. It’s got those two twill ties on the placket. It’s got side seam pockets. It even has a drawstring hem. All of this adds up to the perfect parka. Sure, it’s linen so it’s not really a cold weather parka. But it does lend itself to some layering opportunities. It doesn’t matter to me because I fucking love linen. Did you guys know to make linen you have to basically let the flax rot in standing water before it’s pliable enough to be made into a fiber that can actually be spun? I know you guys are probably wondering where you'll get such salient information now that Four Pins is shutting down. Guess you’re just gonna have to use Wikipedia like the rest of us now.
