Batten Sportswear is run by Shinya Hasegawa, an avid vintage clothing collector who designs his line based on the surf and outdoor clothing culture of the 60's-80's. The Brooklyn based line has landed at one of our new favorite shops in Toronto at Lost & Found. I love the colour and functionality of this parka and when chatting with Owner Jonathan Elias, he let me know why they decided to bring this piece in.
"When we first came across the travel shell parka the colour, fabric and functionality made it a perfect fit for the assortment we were bringing in. We bike a lot in toronto and during the colder months of spring and fall it can get rainy so the 60/40 fabric protects us from the elements and if we can do it looking good all that much better! Honestly this jacket is just plain bad ass."
