Women's / Men's


This functional, hardworking outer layer was designed to provide perennial utility to the wearer. Inspired by the vintage work coats worn almost daily by the co-founders of Permanent Collection, this updated version is sewn from a durable, washable Japanese dark indigo denim. This unlined jacket features a subtly dropped shoulder, a longer hem for more coverage, six buttons up the front, and four roomy pockets to get all your things from place to place. Intended for both women and men, this first release has slightly shorter sleeves, our next iteration – coming soon! – is sewn with a 3-inch-longer sleeve for men, and for women with longer arms.

Named in homage to artist Ann Hamilton (b.1956this jacket was conceived for the working creative or, for that matter, for anyone who needs a piece in their wardrobe that will work hard for them.
