6 pockets overshirt – Cotton with tricolor checks


The first edition of the overshirt by Athi Editions. A cotton canvas fabric with drawn threads that give a little relief to the overshirt. Small checks formed by blue and red lines on a light brown background. A collaboration with Swann who brought their expertise in the making of the shirt. Overshirt because it can be worn over a t-shirt or fine knitwear. Lighter than a jacket, an overshirt has no canvas and is less formal. With its many pockets, we have designed it to be functional, to be worn easily in mid-season.

Cotton canvas overshirt with a loose, straight fit. It is a garment that can be worn as a jacket in mid-season or that layering enthusiasts can have fun using to give more complexity to their looks. The cut is loose and straight, but just at the waist. This means you can wear it over a t-shirt or a fine knitwear, without it looking as formal as a blazer.

Our overshirt has a cuban collar which differs by not having a collar stand. It sits open on the chest like a jacket lapel or can be worn up without being too stiff (there is a soft trimming that holds the collar in place).

In terms of pockets… Functional, this overshirt has 6 pockets! The lower rounded patch pockets are double. Which means that inside the jacket, we have hidden smaller pockets on the back of the front patch pockets. They remind a little bit the ticket pockets that you can have on a suit jacket. On the chest, heart side, an outside pocket. On the opposite side, the pocket is inside and we can see its seams from the outside. Just a little extra style detail.

With Swann’s expertise in tailoring, we were able to work out the details of the style and measurements of the overshirt. Rather than trying to reinvent what is being done in shirts or what they have been good at for years, we were guided to create an overshirt that combined our idea of cool tailoring with their tailoring standards.

🇮🇹 The production was entrusted to their Italian workshop (Swann works with either a French or Italian workshop depending on the style of shirt to be manufactured). The quality of the stitching is flawless and there are details that are typical of fine shirt making. The pocket edges are reinforced, the flapped fabric is topstitched, the collar is ” rib stitched ” and its angles are reinforced by additional stitches. Details such as the locker loop in the collar or the folds at the cuff hint at some of the specificities of shirtmaking.
