Past And Present Uses For Moldable Wire Frame Hoods

Ten C is no stranger to lustworthy military-inspired outerwear. For this short parka they took their favorite elements from a '50s field jacket and a few sprinklings from German parkas. This modern take hits a bit shorter than a traditional joint and the hood has a moldable wire frame so that you can give it whatever shape your dumb head happens to be. Originally, this detail was useful to soldiers who needed to keep the elements at bay while maintaining a clear line of vision. Now, it will be utilized by menswear nerds spending an extra 15 minutes in front of their Ikea selfie mirrors, adjusting their hoods to the perfect level of disinterested nonchalance.
