Elegant men's light cotton short coat in black
Elegant, minimalistic men's short coat made of soft cotton, which surprises with subtly unusual details - and proves versatility in combination with other quirks.
"To Have or To Be" is one of the most important works by the German-American psychoanalyst, philosopher and social psychologist Erich Fromm, who is regarded as an influential representative of humanism and devoted his entire life to existential questions.
The black men's short coat named after him, knitted in the company's own atelier, is similarly existential: In its minimalism, it poses the question of what is essential. Made from 100% soft cotton, the slim-fitting obstinacy with twoside pockets and an inner breast pocket has no lapels and gets by with a single button on the front.
A touch of subtle extravagance is provided by the unusual details, which are mainly expressed in the cut:
A diagonal seam runs down the back, crossing the shoulders and then extending into a sleeve on one side, and across the front of the chest on the other: a metaphor for life's journey, which can run in several directions. The sleeves close asymmetrically The hems are slightly frayed and can be read as a stand-in for the chaos that existence brings.
Combined with slim-fitting trousers 'Gropius' and T-shirt 'Ricoeur', 'Fromm' becomes an unconventional interpretation of the classic suit; worn with shirt 'Jay' reveals its elegant side. If you like it more special, combine the short coat with the extraordinary trousers 'Levinas'.

We design our collections in an experimental process, enriching them with thoughts and ideas from the fields of philosophy, art and literature or drawing inspiration from philosophy, art and literature. That is why our trousers and jackets, blouses and dresses bear the names of philosophers, literary figures and sociologists. We work with materials from nature, which we like to combine in asymmetrical, avant-garde cuts. Our aesthetic is based on the Japanese wabi-sabi concept: “Pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.”
